[Walter Danley] ê The Tipping Point [zimbabwe PDF] Read Online ↠´ Before the book was in its finished state, I received the ARC of the second edition of The Tipping Point to review therefore, my comments are based on the unpolished product Debut novel, The Tipping Point by Walter Danley, begins with murder and continues from there with corporate greed, intrigue, conspiracy, suspense, and There are many questions that come up which the reader will want answered before reaching the last page Even though there were a few contradictions in the story, sidetracks and extra information that drew the reader away from the main story, and times when it was hard to follow who was speaking, the main thread carried through It was set in the 1970 s, so the reader may find some subtle sexism that seems to be accepted by the characters.

The Tipping Point is a novel centred around a Real Estate Firm called CapVest This is a story of Friendship, Success and Deceit, I m sure that Mr Danley s background in real estate helps to provide a believable yet captivating set of events.
Now, generally I can work out what is going to happen in these kind of stories, but I would not have expected the person at the heart of this mystery to be the person it is I had someone else pegged for around 80% of the book At the beginning of the book Mr Danley sets up the story and introduces us to all of the characters, I especially like authors who really nurture their characters, it shows a respect for the story and it means that by the time things start to really happen you feel like you know everyone.
