Wall Street comes to Washington in THE NAVIGATOR (Macmillan/Forge Books), a stunning story of greed, modern politics, international intrigue, and ultimately affirmation. From the Publishers Weekly starred review: "Most financial thrillers limit the business side of the equation to a dead Wall Street CEO or two, but Pocalyko’s debut novel showcases a deal that reaches deep into the past for plot and motivation as well as to today’s headlines for a thought-provoking, riveting read." THE NAVIGATOR is the most timely and important financially-themed novel in a generation, an enormously compelling and literary thriller with message and meaning for an American economy still dealing with the effects of our near-financial meltdown, in a political system bound by partisan gridlock.
