John Sealy presents The Edge of America

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. Michel Stone, award-winning author of The Iguana Tree and Border Child says, “The Edge of America kept me up way too late, but I couldn’t put it down!....Jon Sealy’s adrenaline-fueled, action packed journey through Miami’s dark underbelly and beyond will keep readers’ hearts racing through its final word and will leave them hungry for Sealy’s next captivating read."
