The Deal: About Face
By: Adam Gittlin
New York City commercial real estate power-broker Jonah Gray has finally resurfaced and he has a lot of unfinished business. Since becoming a fugitive and fleeing his own country, the road traveled has been a long and shocking one. And it has been a road of singular purpose: the methodical preparation for his return. Saddled nine years ago with a rare Fabergé Imperial Easter Egg thought lost in the Russian Revolution, Jonah made sure the treasure ended up at its destination. In keeping it from his conniving half-brother, he also inadvertently killed a dirty New York City cop, and his own father was murdered in cold blood. Jonah is unsure which is greater: all he lost in this world, or all he has learned about himself. One thing is certain. It is time. Time for ruthlessness. Time for payback. Time for truth. Time for redemption. Time for a new deal. Jonah believes he is ready for everything that is about to happen. The question remains…is everyone else?
