Chapter 1

SUNSET TOWERS

The sun sets in the west (Just about everyone knows that), but Sunset Towers faced east. Strange! Sunset Towers faced east and had no towers. This glittery, glassy apartment house stood alone on the Lake Michigan shore five stories high. Five empty stories high. 

Then one day (it happened to be the Fourth of July), a most uncommon-looking delivery boy rode around town slipping letters under the doors of the chosen tenants-to-be. The letters were signed Barney Northrup.

The delivery boy was sixty-two years old, and there was no such person as Barney Northrup.


Dear Lucky One:

Here it is—the apartment you've always dreamed of, at a rent you can afford, in the newest, most luxurious building on Lake Michigan:

SUNSET TOWERS

  • Picture windows in every room

  • Uniformed doorman, maid service

  • Central air conditioning, hi-speed elevator

  • Exclusive neighborhood, near excellent schools

  • Etc, etc.

You have to see it to believe it. But these unbelievably elegant apartments will be shown by appointment only. So hurry, there are only a few left!!! Callme now at 276-7474 for this once-in-a-lifetime offer.

Your servant,

Barney Northrup

P.S. I am also renting ideal space for:

  • Doctor's office in lobby

  • Coffee shop with entrance from parking lot

  • Hi-class restaurant on entire top floor


Six letters were delivered, just six. Six appointments were made, and one by one, family by family, talk, talk, talk, Barney Northrup led the tours around and about Sunset Towers.

"Take a look at all that glass. One-way glass," Barney Northrup said. "You can see out, nobody can see in."

Looking up, the Wexlers (the first appointment of the day) were blinded by the blast of morning sun that flashed off the face of the building.
