Publisher's Summary

In the 1940s, Walter L. Shaw was thinking of speakerphones, conference calls, and call forwarding. Ahead of the world by decades, Shaw spent a lifetime inventing and patenting the many means of communication we take for granted, but he was repeatedly cheated by shrewd businessmen and big corporations. His son, Walter T. Shaw, enraged by the ill treatment of his father, began a personal mission to even the score. Shaw Jr. became one of the most prolific jewel thieves in U.S. history, while Shaw Sr., in order to make ends meet for his family, was persuaded to put his brilliance to work for the mob.
