“If you took Barbarians at the Gate and The Firm and blended them together with the best stories of Michael Chrichton and John Sandford, then you’d get The Tipping Point by Walter Danley. From the slopes of Aspen to Caribbean beaches, Danley’s writing is on point in any climate. This is a can’t miss thriller!” — Mark Fadden, award-winning author of The Brink “The Tipping Point" offers an insider’s look into the rarified business of public real estate investment with a story that unfolds like a Mary Higgins Clark plot, but sexy and harder edged. Danley has an eye for a good tale and believe me, he really knows how to tell it! "The Tipping Point" is one of those rare debut novels that makes one uncomfortably impatient to read his next one.” — George Thomas Cox If Tom Burke hadn’t died on the slopes of Aspen Mountain, Garth Wainwright would have never risked losing everything. But Burke’s suspicious death launched an avalanche—a tipping point—involving nine business partners and a hefty helping of greed, complicity and murder. Back at company headquarters, Wainwright starts digging for clues, asking questions, and is met with suspicion and skepticism from the other partners. When his bulldog mindset pushes him to keep probing for answers, he uncovers a conspiracy far bigger than anyone could have imagined—one that could very well destroy the largest real estate investment company in the country, the reputations of all its partners and their massive personal fortunes. Then, as more partners’ dead bodies start piling up, his question of why becomes who. Which partners can he trust? The company’s at stake. Lives are at stake. The financial community is watching. The Tipping Point is beginning to bend.

Danley’s blue-collar background is far from the high-flying characters, turf wars, and mystery of The Tipping Point. Born an Indiana Hoosier, Danley’s family moved to California because his dad was a machinist in a World War II defense plant. Much later, Walter served his country as a Navy Hospital Corpsman, then in the Fleet Marine Force as a medic. Following his honorable discharge, he sold wood products to the construction trades, attending college at night until a developer client recruited him into commercial real estate, where he spent his working career on the investment side of the business. Danley’s proudest accomplishments are his five grown sons. He credits the wonderful influence of their stepmother, Christopher Norris, a Broadway, film, and television actress. Walter and Christopher were married for eighteen years during the boys’ formative years and remain good friends. Danley is a veteran of four decades of real estate investments on a national platform. He authored the college course, Creative and Unconventional Finance, and lectured at five campuses of the University of California and served on the UCLA Real Estate Advisory Board for three years. Walter enrolled in mid-career at Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School of Business and Management, earning an MBA. He did post-graduate work in Management Theory at the Claremont Graduate School of Business. Walter now lives in the Texas Hill Country, where he works on the sequel to his suspense thriller, The Tipping Point, as well as a third novel, which he describes as a historical western with a fantasy twist.
