Inhaltsangabe: Rhode Island, 1990. A looming banking scandal is about to break wide open. At the center stands the scion of a powerful banking institution, heir to his father's fortune and position, but not to his values and principles. Luco Parisi's scheme plunders the institution his father worked a lifetime to build and threatens to bankrupt his father's legacy as well. With his deceit on the verge of being exposed, Luco sets into motion a carefully laid plan of evasion and escape, leaving behind a trail of financial devastation for thousands -- including local mob boss Tubby Bgnatore. Before Luco escapes, he uses the little time he has left to settle some old scores. But revenge works both ways and the mob, it turns out, is the least of his problems. Luco is about to learn the painful meaning of vengeance -- and retribution -- from an unexpected adversary.
Vom Verlag: The underlying concept of The Aberration springs from the very real banking crisis that shook the State of Rhode Island in 1990, culminating in the closing of every bank and credit union in the state on New Year’s Day of 1991. To this day, thousands of Rhode Islanders have yet to regain total access to their deposits. Hundreds of others lost money big-time, bringing some to financial ruin.
As a lifelong Rhode Island resident and former business owner whose fortunes were directly affected by the infamous crisis, Mr. Giannini draws upon his personal experiences and insights to set the stage for a compelling tale of revenge, greed, lust and morality. With his critical eye for detail, he creates an easily recognizable landscape for a story that has at its core the eternal moral conflicts that afflict us all.
While Mr. Giannini’s telling of it is presented in the form of fiction and is tempered by his wry sense of humor, it is a story that will resonate in every region of the country, where banking irregularities are being disclosed almost on a daily basis. It is a story, therefore, that we felt needed to be told.
