He is an investigator for a company that deals in corporate intelligence: vetting potential Wall Street business deals before the contract is signed. It also committed one of my pet peeves is that every meal is described. Also, it would seem to me that even the densest Wall Street investigator would recognize a Ponzi scheme from page one…but maybe not 40 years ago?
Maybe Bernie Madoff is the only reason I copped on. The reader also get descriptions of every time old Tim gets laid. Their coupling is a punishing duet, played furioso. They seem determined to rend walls of flesh and penetrate to a bliss that might consume them both. View 2 comments.
The Timothy Files
I didn't realize this was three short stories and so is Timothy's Game. There didn't seem like enough time to develope the character. Just bits and pieces. And the stories reflected that. Granted I got on the Sanders train with McNally so I had a little catching up to do, but I am starting to think that the McNally series might be my favorite. But, as the three stories showed some progress so too might Timothy's Game. Aug 08, John Mcconahey added it.
He is a Vietnam vet and he owns a table and three chairs. He sleeps on a mattress on the floor and his occasional guests drink from emptied jelly jars — make that — drink ALOT from emptied jelly jars. Cleo, his neutered cat, is regularly fed such fare as moldy cheddar and turkey salami, but Cleo will eat anything.

Timothy Cone is an investigator for Haldering and Company, a firm headed by a retired FBI agent whose function is to do corporate intelligence on businesses for its clients.

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future. This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author. This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up. I loved this book! It had earned a permanent home in my collection and I'll be picking up the rest of the series and other books from the author ASAP.

Not one novel, but three gritty novellas? The last story was impossibly long, since you knew what was happening by page three, but it takes the NYPD and our hero over pages to figure out if the investments are a swindle. Sanders can be a good write, but this is not his best, or even good Not one novel, but three gritty novellas? Sanders can be a good write, but this is not his best, or even good work. It was published in , but that is no excuse. There is good work from the 19th century.
Jun 14, Kay rated it it was amazing. Discovered that "Files" meant just that, this is a book of 3 "files," 3 cases, 3 stories. Yup, just love Timothy Cone, one of "Wall Street's 'specialists in corporate intelligence. Not a great book, but just what the doctor ordered at this point. I almost gave it four stars, but it did seem to get a bit repetitious at times, going to the same wells for more water, saying the same things over and over, repeating itself I did like the lead character, who bends the rules, but knows what's important. Besides, he's rather funny at times. Sep 26, Pamella rated it really liked it Recommends it for: mystery lovers.
Three files. Three short stories? Very interesting mysteries. Financial private investigator Timothy Cone. Hired to investigate this company for that company But when things don't add up he won't turn loose. Not even if they get hot for him or his girl. Good book.

The Timothy Files by Lawrence Sanders
Interesting and full of suspense but not to be read on an empty stomach. The characters are eating all the time. Jan 12, Velvetink rated it liked it Shelves: fiction , zs , crime-fiction. Timothy Cone and his relationship with his cat Cleo is amusing. I love main characters who are lacking in personal hygiene and like to drink and smoke. Aug 30, Brian rated it really liked it.
