Author Walter Danley /Reviewed by Felita Daniels / 560 Pages
I absolutely loved the author’s sincere dedication pages. It was almost like a love letter to his readers. It was certainly honest about why this book is the second edition. I feel this author has a great deal of promise, though because I am honest in my reviews, a dash more polishing could improve this book.
There are many occurrences where he repeats descriptions or utilizes the same word frequently. Often the same thought is expressed just reworded only paragraphs from the first instance. Trimming some of this would tighten up the work. However, if you don’t mind this writing style there is a masculine protagonist that wants to get to the bottom of Burke’s death and some irregularities in the business he is involved in. Garth is clear headed in his business dealings. He’s still feeling his way through relationships with women. No one’s perfect!
This is the first book featuring Wainwright. As a successful businessman involved in real estate there is a lot of opportunity for future mysteries and adventures. The author has real life experience in these fields- so the feel of that world comes through. This is a series to keep an eye on!
About the Author
Danley’s blue-collar background is far from the high-flying characters of The Tipping Point. He was born an Indiana Hoosier before Danley’s family moved to California. His father decided to be a home building contractor. This is the environment that young Walter grew up in; construction and real estate.
Much later, Walter served his country as a U.S. Navy Hospital Corpsman and as an Operating Room Technician (read scrub nurse) and transferred to the San Diego Naval Hospital. He had the good fortune to work with the Navy’s best. This became fodder for his fantasized future career.
Following an honorable discharge and with a new wife, he found his way back to the construction industry, selling kitchen cabinets. With bidding new construction projects and attending college at night, it left little time to help his wife raise his first two sons.
It was at this time Danley was recruited to join a commercial real estate firm. Danley spent most of his working career on the investment side of this business.
Danley’s five grown sons have parented many grandchildren for him while building their own successful careers. He credits their mother’s outstanding child rearing skills together with the wonderful influence of their stepmother, Christopher Norris—a Broadway, film, and television actress—for the fine family with which he is blessed. Walter and Christopher were married for eighteen years, during the boys’ formative years. She remains a good friend to the boys and Walter.
Danley reignited his education in mid-career at Pepperdine University’s Graziadio School of Business and Management, earning an MBA. Encouraged by the Pepperdine experience, he pursued a terminal degree in Management Theory at the Peter F. Drucker School of Management at Claremont Graduate School of Business.
A four-decade veteran of real estate investments on a national platform, Danley authored the course, Creative and Unconventional Finance and taught it at five campuses of the University of California Extension School. During that period, Danley served on the UCLA Real Estate Advisory Board.
Walter lives in the Texas Hill Country, where he works on Inside Moves, the sequel to his suspense thriller, The Tipping Point. He confides that the Inside Moves will test his protagonist in ways unimagined in earlier works. Beyond that novel in Danley’s work in process and scheduled for release in 2016, is an as yet untitled stand-alone mystery. Danley describes it as a historical western but with a fantasy twist.
