" The call lasted 18 minutes, at the end of which he said he'd think about whether he'd speak. "Due diligence," he called it, which, I later found out, included buying and reading a book I had written, and which I had mentioned during our phone conversation. He has a forensic interest in the details, as, doubtless, does his brother, Roger, a former athlete turned banker.
