Dizzy Cityis a suspense-filled portrait of the darker -- and more exciting -- side of American capitalism at the dusk of the Gilded Age, and a compelling novel about what happens when we try to find happiness at others' expense. Englishman Benedict Cramb deserts the trench warfare of World War I in northern France and stows away on a ship bound for New York. Once there, he falls under the sway of the urbane and mysterious Julius McAteer, who sees in Ben his chance to finely hone the tools of someone who can master the art of the con. They concoct a ruse, pick their mark -- a blustering midwestern cattleman named Henry Jergens -- and the game is afoot. But the further Ben follows the money in New York, the closer he moves back to the war in Europe and his shattering experiences there. This page-turner is rich in historical detail and filled with romance and adventure.
