Additional Information

This volume contains the first two novels of the trilogy of Desire (The Financier and The Titan). These novels, powerful and intelligent, reveal the world of business and high finance at the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century.

The Financier, first volume of the Trilogy, is about Frank Cowperwood, whose father is a banker in Philadelphia, making his first money by buying cheap soaps on the market and selling them back with profit to a grocer. Later, he gets a job in Henry Waterman & Company, and leaves it for Tighe & Company. He also marries an affluent widow, in spite of his young age. Over the years, he starts misusing municipal funds with the aid of the City Treasurer. In 1871, the Great Chicago Fire redounds to a stock market crash, prompting him to be bankrupt and exposed. Although he attempts to browbeat his way out of being sentenced to jail by intimidating Mr Stener, politicians from the Republican Party use their influence to use him as a scapegoat for their own corrupt practices...

In the Titan, sequel to The Financier, Cowperwood moves to Chicago with his new wife Aileen. He decides to take over the street-railway system. He bankrupts several opponents with the help of John J. McKenty and other political allies. Meanwhile, Chicago society finds out about his past in Philadelphia and the couple are no longer invited to dinner parties. After a while, the press turns on him too...
