A CIA operative in 1980s Miami attempts to make himself filthy rich by teaming up with a crime syndicate importing drugs into the United States. When his rebellious daughter disappears with a lot of money, he is in BIG TROUBLE. Told from multiple view points, Sealy has created characters and a plot so realistic that I had to keep reminding myself it was fiction. This book is STRESSFUL and also one of the most exciting the I've ever read. Masterful!— From Carl
1984. Miami. Enter the high-stakes world of South Florida's drug culture, where a businessman with CIA ties is about to risk it all.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.
