From Library Journal:

After Kitty Goldmark seduces Stark "Tommy" Thompson, their affair isn't very interesting because their dialogues are so banal. The storyline improves, however, when they decide to mix business with pleasure and become very rich from an insider trading scheme. More wealth from a family enterprise follows, as do greed, distrust, murder, and sundry other best-seller ingredients. Even some clever plot twists can't save this book though, because the first-person narration drags too often and the protagonists are neither likeable nor engaging. Public libraries may want anyway, in case the hefty book promotion stirs demand. Freeborn is the pseudonym of a supposedly well-known author; this is a Literary Guild selection.

From Publishers Weekly:

Greed and sexual obsession undo a divorced lawyer who becomes involved with a conniving young widow and her brother, an investment banker. According to PW , "this authoritative, highly readable thriller is a chilling amorality tale."
