Walter DanleyWalter recently published the mystery novel, The Tipping Point, available in paperback and for the Kindle. The first-time author offers an insider’s look into the rarified business of public real estate investment with a story that follows protagonists Garth Wainwright and Tom Shaw through intrigue involving murder, fraud, betrayal and romance.

Three partners of a successful, opulent corporation are murdered, and colleagues Wainright and Shaw are determined to prove the deaths are not merely accidental. High-stakes real estate ventures, insurance schemes, and office politics entrench this mystery firmly in the commercial monetary sector, covering a global playing field and lots of twists and turns.

“In business school, I wanted to honor Pepperdine with a scholarly work on the real estate syndication business I worked in for so many years. The fact that I didn’t begin the writing until two years ago may be why “The Tipping Point” is based on a few facts smothered in a lot of fiction,” Walter shared with the school’s official alumni LinkedIn group.

Now retired, Walter formerly serves as a chief financial officer and an investment executive.
