Featured Book: Wise & Otherwise by Joshua Scott

SUCCEEDING AT ANY PRICE, EVEN WHEN IGNORING WHAT IT TAKES OR COSTS.

A young and overly ambitious college graduate is dead set on forging ahead in the business world at any price even if he cannot yet grasp the costs, nor the consequences of his choices. No task is too mean or too vicious, and no matter how morally dodgy, no situation causes our hero to pause and rethink his actions as he only views before him a set of opportunities to climb further and further.

This saga takes place in the mid 80s of the last century within the dark labyrinths of a multi-billion conglomerate 'Inter Finance', whose tentacles spread around the globe and reach into the highest spheres of corporate power and of government circles. The quest takes our un-prepared but determined hero from one dangerous situation to the next - swirling between shady dealers and former mercenaries and landing him into the arms of gentle beauties, while hopping from jungles to high-rises in a race against the clock and against himself.

A street culture mixed with a sophisticated sense of 'savoir-dire' at any occasion, transports the reader from seriously dark moments peppered with light doses of Lower East Side humor, into unexpectedly deep thoughts but without falling into the grim traps of a serie noire genre or rushing for the chocolate box. Greed, machinations, betrayals and genuine love are scattered along the alleys of this fast and invigorating journey.
