Page 158 Books welcomes author Jon Sealy to Wake Forest to talk about his new book The Edge of America.
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. As chief financial officer for a Miami holding company and CIA front, Bobby West is on the edge. In the go-go 1980s financial culture, he's over-leveraged his business and turned to a deal-with-the-devil money laundering operation with a local gangster. When the operation goes south and $3 million goes missing, West must reckon with the fallout of living without a safety net. 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.
Jon Sealy is also the author of The Whiskey Baron. A South Carolina native, he currently lives in Richmond, Virginia. He recently launched his own press, Haywire.
