Author’s manager explains actions

After weeks of testimony accus­ing him of negligence, the former finance manager for best-selling author Patricia Cornwell took to the witness stand in his own defense Monday, saying his actions were misread and that he was only doing his job for a demanding client.

Evan Snapper — a former principal at Anchin, Block & Anchin LLP — has been the target of criticism in Cornwell’s lawsuit against him and the company in federal court in Boston, with lawyers and witnesses accusing him of fudging financial records and making investment and real estate decisions with Cornwell’s money for his own benefit.
