The Analyst Blog Tour

Summary: Character David Heart moves from his hometown to  New York after obtaining a job working as an Analyst for a Wall Street Firm.
David Heart become the target for verbal abusive comments from the firms's head trader, Blackie.  This is very embarrassing and no one on the job comes to his aid because no one wants to be jacked by that dog eat character, Blackie,with the exception of Sandy, a beautiful business dressed woman who had been in that rookie seat and defeated Blackie at his game.  She and David become a team. She assisted David in helping him stand against Blackie as well as taught him the business with a little risky twist.
Naive David is so glad to have someone to take time out to teach him the functions of an analyst that he is unaware that he is a target. Extortion become the game and David is straight in the middle. He must make a choice: facilitate an insider-trading felony so he can obtain the money his family desperately need or face the cruel abusive predator of Blackie, who has framed David and awaits to throw him under the table while the entire company looks on. Can David survive this? Will his childhood theory PERK help him out of this one!!

My Review: Four great characters, unethical, illegal, extortion, greed and Money,  Darn! that's ingredients for a good novel.  Author P.T. Dawkins penned an interesting twist of a story line in the Analyst. The author takes you inside the world of stocks, trades, Investment and sits you right in the middle of the day to day operation of how MONEY is traded. His experience as an investment of the stressful risky world of trades is displayed expertly into this story line.
Each character is well developed and you actually feel they aren't characters in a novel. My reading pace was moderate to a few slow moments. A few pages was just to detail for me, I wanted to get back to the action of the story.  The character of Sandy was typical. The character of Jennifer was surprising, I actually wished things could of turned our better for the character, Alexei only because of his desire to help his family.
The plot was indeed interesting and held my attention well.  Using the legal system or format and pen it with  the risky business of Investment, good characters and a well written plot, you got a fascinating inside look into the world of trading, extortion, and etc.  The author did a good job of detailing the world of Traders and investment without going to far left with the jargon of investment and trades.
Book Cover Design: The cover is definitely a connection to the plot. The male figure with the stock numbers and handcuffs is on point. It piqued my interest. This novel sits on my book shelf as a Darn Good Read.
