Staff Reviews


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!

Description


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.
