In the Long Shadow of Steel & Glass
Some men have grand ideas of themselves and other men simply have no grand ideas. Lowell is somehow a bit of both. Inveterately mercenary and a born scumbag, Lowell conceives of himself as a mover and a shaker, a smooth operator in the Seattle shadows. Instead, he is inescapably (tragically?) small time. For what he lacks in clout, he is well accomplished in avarice; Lowell is plenty greedy and enterprising enough to have his dirty little fingers in several of the sprawl’s dirtiest businesses. Abutted against his inflated sense of self as an old-world gangster is the modern day reality that he is a human trafficker, dealing in people-as-chattel, live or dead, whole or in part. In addition to human commodities, Lowell is involved the fencing of nearly anything that can be bought or sold.
