The pier's hampering the development of some exclusive property. A brother and sister are on opposing sides, and a good deal of money is involved. So is a lot of drinking. There's a lot of everything in this book. There's also a picture of a time when a roller coaster going off the track and killing nine people not only doesn't shut down the park but it doesn't even slow down the attendance at the pier. There's even a guy doing Sidney Greenstreet doing Kasper Gutman.
The Costaine/McCall books aren't top shelf Gold Medal, but they're close enough: very well done and a good evening's entertainment.
