Blindsided by Jay Giles (Reagent Press), Kindle version.
When an elderly man befriends an independent investment broker who handles his stock portfolio, no one, especially the broker, thinks it’s particularly unusual. When the old man dies, however, the broker is surprised to learn that he is now the executor of the estate and that he had been investing stolen funds. Worse, the funds were embezzled from a powerful drug cartel.
The story that follows is very well written, entertaining, and suspenseful, even though it is predictable. The characters are all immensely likeable and I found myself cheering for them at every turn in the road…and there were many such turns. Such stories are violent by their nature, and this one is no exception. In the best tradition of bad things happen to good people, the violence stands in stark contrast to the humanity and likeability of the characters, leaving the reader cheering in the end.
Blindsided by Jay Giles…well worth the read!
Hi folks...I'm into a second career as a fiction author. After more than thirty-seven years of professional managerial experience, scientific background, and a lifetime of practical skills, my love of reading, research and writing has combined into action stories about real people told in a tongue-in-cheek style.
