We start out the book witnessing a “job interview” of sorts. Only the firm has decided that they want Ronnie as an employee and are willing to do almost anything to obtain him. He decides to accept their employment and the stipulations to it. Flash forward six months into the future. Ronnie works in an office with Roy and it’s pretty safe to say neither likes the other. Ronnie invites Roy out to lunch on a daily basis but Roy is always declining because of one reason or another.
Ronnie is Israeli. Every day he calls his best friend and they talk about what’s going on. Gadi, along with Ronnie’s family, wants him to come back to Israel. He’s miserable in the US and in this job. He’s bored with it. Until one afternoon when he goes to lunch. He chooses his normal table and after he is served his food, he hears someone talking about betting on horses. Only he recognizes the voice. Stepping out of the phone booth, next to Ronnie’s table, is Henry, one of the partners at the fund he is working for.
This is a book that will keep you interested until the end. There’s mystery, suspense, love. This book was read in a couple of sittings. I just couldn’t stop unless it was to take care of my daughter or to run errands. Ronnie is a character that I liked from the beginning. He holds his ground when it comes to selling the fund. Everyone is pushing him for some reason but he won’t sell it until he finds out those reasons. Which leads him on a quest to find out. But could also mean the end of his existence. Definitely a book I would read again multiple times.
(I received this book free in exchange for an honest review)
