Publisher Description

When Peggy Gimmel decides to sell the apartment she bought decades ago for a few thousand dollars, she’s thrilled to discover that it’s worth almost $2 million. But her sudden windfall triggers a cascade of unexpected events and plunges her into the dizzying orbit of Lucinda Wells, one of Manhattan’s most successful and ruthless real-estate agents. Peggy’s not the only one at Lucinda’s mercy. There’s also the technology entrepreneur struggling to salvage his sinking company while gut-renovating his home. The socialite exiled from Park Avenue to the pullout sofa of her parents’ West Side apartment. The illegal immigrant amassing a fortune printing money. The clueless widow trying to unload a world-class collection of fake artwork. These are just some of the characters whose lives intersect in unlikely ways, all of them nearly overwhelmed by the rocketing real-estate market and the hard-charging broker who holds the key to their futures. As he interweaves these often suspenseful and frequently comical stories, Margolis captures the zeitgeist of a cultural moment, keeping us listening with the rise and fall of his characters’ fortunes.

    " Mother recommended this book. It was just OK to me. She loved it. Lots of fancy real estate in New York City. "

    " Several New York City couples lives' cross paths as they move around the city. Financial gaain, real estate highs and lows, and living as an elite are the primary focus. The story starts slow so give it a few chapters if you decide to check it out. "

    " A light and funny book if and only if you are intensely interested in the NYC real estate market - but who isn't? "

    " This was a mildly interesting book about a random group of wealthy people in Manhattan whose lives interesct through real estate. How they end up is both interesting and a bit depressing in some cases. This could be classified as an anti-wealth book. "
