But few New Orleans immigrants find as much prosperity as Oliver does amongst the city’s lively streets. By the time he’s ninety-five, Oliver has amassed an enormous fortune built from brothels and speakeasies. But as his wealth grows, so does his family’s desire to control it. After a series of strokes, Oliver must choose an inheritor, even though his two entitled daughters and ambitious adopted son don’t always seem worthy of his legacy.The Condor Passes is a simmering dynastic saga of three generations colliding in their battle to control an empire.
