by Frank J. Esposito
Tony Rizzo is a man who seems to have everything: success, influence, wealth. He has loyal friends, a loving family, and the respect and admiration of his peers. But his high-stress, high-profile lifestyle has caught up with him. As the story opens he lies in a hospital bed, clinging to life…
Although he has a rocky start in life – having been orphaned at a young age and born without the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth – Tony Rizzo has a flare for numbers and a drive to succeed. He dedicates himself to studying finance and the stock market. When Tony joins the Marines as a means to help him fund graduate school, he winds up a decorated war hero. After college, he soon rises to the top of the financial world. But something is missing. Tony is still in love with a college friend, Caroline, who has married another man and started a family. Will he live long enough to reunite with his true love?
