Like many people in turn-of-the-20th-century New Orleans, Thomas Henry Oliver came to the city to escape a dull life - in his case, a childhood in the backwoods of the Midwest. But few New Orleans immigrants find as much prosperity as Oliver does amongst the city’s lively streets. By the time he’s 95, Oliver has amassed an enormous fortune built from brothels and speakeasies. But as his wealth grows, so does his family’s desire to control it. After a series of strokes, Oliver must choose an inheritor, even though his two entitled daughters and ambitious adopted son don’t always seem worthy of his legacy.
The Condor Passes is a simmering dynastic saga of three generations colliding in their battle to control an empire.

Excellent performance. Interesting sweeping plot. But the characters....
I listened to the end because I wanted to know how things turned out. But every character survived till the end and even some who didn't were detestable. The novel would have benefited from greater complexity in the characters.
