Dead Cat Bounce : Robert White
Old Mrs Bello lived above the family grocery store all her life, she worked hard, was frugal and lived an ordinary life. There was one thing that people knew about Mrs B though - she absolutely didn’t trust banks.
When she died at the age of 88 there was only one question on everyone’s lips – what happened to the family money?
Despite frantic searching from her surviving relatives, not a single cent was ever found and the missing family fortune passed into local legend.
Butchie Parmenter doesn’t believe in legends.
Experience has taught Butchie not to believe in anything except himself, so when good fortune unexpectedly lands at his feet he grabs the opportunity with both hands, determined not to let go. No matter what.
Butchie should have figured that nothing worth having ever comes easy and if something looks too good to be true, it usually is.
