(The Edge of America) at Inlet Affairs
Jon Sealy, author of "The Whiskey Baron," has hit another one out of the ballpark! Bobby West is on the edge. As chief financial officer for a Miami holding company and a CIA front, he has overleveraged his business in the go-go 1980s financial culture. He turns to a deal-with-the-devil money laundering operation with a local gangster, Alexander French — a deal which quickly goes south when $3 million goes missing. Now Mr. French, a group of Cuban exiles, and an Israeli smuggler named Adriana Chekhov are all after Bobby West to pay up. With echoes of Iran-Contra and the Orwellian surveillance state, "The Edge of America" is a stunning thriller about greed, power, and the limits of the American dream.
