Moore has applied his fascination with financial crimes, frauds, and scams to his newly self-published novel. "Monkey Man," takes place almost entirely in Greenwich and Stamford.

Beginning in 1995, the story follows the life of Ike Caudine, a struggling salesman who gets drawn in by his childhood friend into becoming an accomplice in an internet scheme that falls apart. Ten years later, he is leading a quiet life as a receptionist and turns to his former partner for a business idea to impress the woman who has left him. He soon finds himself in a violent world of drug dealers and at the center of the money laundering empire that his friend has created.

Moore has been a banker in Greenwich for 14 years and is currently employed by Greenwich Bank and Trust. He has written numerous business articles for local publications and holds a masters degree in English from Western Connecticut State University. He is a Greenwich High School alum and currently resides in Darien, where the novel was completed.

The talk will be held at 2 p.m. Refreshments will be served and a book signing will follow. Barrett Bookstore is located at 314 Heights Road.
