Book Review: Down and Out in Manhattan by Justin Callahan

Jack Cole is an ambitious young man who works as an analyst in an investment banking firm. Noticed one evening by one of the partners of the firm, he is enticed into making a rather dubious deal with devastating outcome of many hardworking people. Jack, adopts the culture of dog eats dog until things start to unravel and he finds himself in a desperate situation where even those he loves are in danger. The added intrigue is Jack’s parentage, his mother has never been married and has never talked to him regarding the identity of his father, but Jack comes across information that points at his past, but the truth is nothing like he expected.

I enjoyed reading this financial suspense/mystery thriller as I found it convincingly written and I enjoyed reading the spiral of Jack’s life and his subsequent realisation of what’s important in life. I particularly enjoyed reading Nat Weston, the detective who added another dimension to the story. There was excitement in action sequences when the the protagonists and antagonists face off and overall, it is a very satisfying read.

Intriguing financial thriller with a moral message. This book is available to read for free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.
