About the Book

In 1942 Wade Grissom was the loyal forty-five-year-old assistant manager of prestigious Wake Bank and Trust Company, located in Raleigh, North Carolina. In six months his fifteen-year dream of becoming manager of the fourth largest bank in the state would be realized. Everyone knew Wade deserved the promotion. However abruptly the Board of Directors of Wake Bank decided to open a branch bank in the small tobacco town of Kinston, and to name Wade Grissom manager, thus ending his promising future at Wake Bank. This slap in the face infuriated Wade Grissom, and he vowed revenge. The only thing that stood in his way was…one thief too many.
