He is a talented and successful mid-century modern architect who trained with the elite at Yale University when it was at the forefront of the modern movement. But he has a dark side. Frustrated by being relegated to a secondary role in the design of a major bank building, a commission he had diligently sought, Errett, with the aid of several martinis, realizes that with his unique access, creativity and audacity, he can commit the perfect crime. He can steal over $2 million and no one would ever realize there had been a theft. At first an intriguing fantasy, the scheme becomes an obsession and then a reality.Set in the 1960s in the South, the book provides insights into the philosophy of mid-century modern design as well as an intimate portrait of a small architectural office where creating drawings by hand was an integral part of the design process.
