Nothing Personal by Mike Offit - Book Blog Tour Stop and Review




About The Book:

Warren Hament is a bright young man who wanders into a career in finance in the early 1980s. Nothing Personal is the extraordinary story of his rapid ascent toward success, painted against a landscape of temptation and personal discovery. Introduced to the seductive, elite bastions of wealth and privilege, and joined by his gorgeous and ambitious girlfriend, he gets a career boost when his mentor is found dead.

Warren soon finds himself at the center of two murder investigations as a crime spree seemingly focused on powerful finance wizards plagues Wall Street. The blood-soaked trail leads to vast wealth and limitless risk as Warren uncovers unexpected opportunity and unknown dangers at every turn and must face moral dilemmas for which he is wholly unprepared.
 
Nothing Personal is a stellar debut novel, which follows an increasingly jaded protagonist as he comes of age in a rarified, deeply corrupt world. Offit, a former senior insider, unflinchingly divulges Wall Street’s culture of abuse and portrays the insidious, creeping forces of greed, sex, and power---and the terrible price paid in their thrall.



My Thoughts:

As someone intimately familiar with the workings of Wall Street, author Mike Offit brings his expertise and knowledge to his debut novel, "Nothing Personal."

This is a novel based on the wheelings and dealings of the moneymakers on Wall Street, but it is so much more as well. There is mystery, adventure, intrigue, and surprisingly a great romance to be found among the pages of this thrilling story.   I went into reading this book with little knowledge of what goes on behind the scenes of the big trading companies, but through Offit's brilliant storytelling and descriptive writing, I came away with a better understanding of what a cut-throat world the world of finance really can be,

I highly recommend this novel for those who enjoy an action-packed story with compelling characters and a mesmerizing tale.
