Editorial Reviews

Review

"...she easily juxtaposes vivid scenes at a kinky sex club on the outskirts of Greenwich Village with references to the bursting economic bubble and the federal government's bank bailout."
                           ― Publishers Weekly
                                  bit.ly/Q7TUIy

"...exposing enough greed, hypocrisy, and blatant illegality to make even the least informed reader deliciously angry."
                           ― Harvard Independent     
                                              bit.ly/OOIcng


"Occupy's 1st bestselling novel"
                           Occupy Virtual Worlds

crisis."

From the Author

EXCERPT: "What hypocrisy. Not democracy, democrisy. We all became temps after the rest of the world's liposuction of American debt. Real estate plummeted, banks foreclosed on the floorboards and people moved to Zuccotti Park."

Customer Reviews

It's Fifty Shades of Grey meets Wall Street!
Robert Stevenson
J.L. Morin is not one of those frivolous literary types who must show you how brilliant they are in every passage.
Dabí Sánchez
Not much of a plot, sophomoric writing, terrible introduction of characters.
Basil

Not as good as I expected it to be- hasn't grabbed my interest after 3 chapters.
Four more words required- how silly.

This is supposedly about the Occupy movement as well as a young woman working on Wall Street, but I gave up at Kindle location 2648. I never was clear what was going on. There was something about a past murder, mortgages, a diary, kinky stuff, who knows? The author is Harvard '87, and I'm Harvard reject class of '73 (though I did go there for grad school), so maybe I'm just not bright enough to appreciate this.

Format: Paperback
Trading at a bank in New York during the day and slowly developing a sex addiction at night, the heroine of this suspense novel is intelligent, street-smart and haunted. Her past, her past lovers, her passion for vegan food make her more human, idealistic and vulnerable than she can afford to be in her day job. Her life disravels as she is drawn into a vortex of fraud and deceit.

J.L. Morin tells a haunting tale in a realistic setting. The book is as fast paced as life in New York. It is an intriguing story, well told

Described as the first "Occupy Novel" the occupy movement only takes up a tiny portion of the book. The protagonist, a young woman named Jerry, moves into the financial world, carrying some secrets, and trying to get away from her mother's murderer. You do get to see the financial world from the inside, as the mortgage debacle hits. There's a bit of kinky sex. But there's all too much angst about relationships and not enough politics.

A lot of unexpected twists in the story line which makes the book interesting. There is a lot of sad aspects as well.

The writer is skilled, the story entertaining, the humor dark. Morin deftly weaves each character's storyline around that of her heroine, throwing light on Wall Street's role in the mortgage breakdown with dark humor to spare. Murder, corruption, intrigue, and humor ... complete with twisted relationships, malignant characters, mysterious pasts, kinky sex, and self-flagellating absurdities. Above all, it's good fiction, regardless of to which side of the political fray you tilt.
