DARIEN, Conn. -- Darien's David Moore, author of "Monkey Man: A Crime Story," will talk about money laundering and his new book on Saturday, Feb. 27 at Barrett Bookstore.
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.
