Danger and Deal Making
The Deal by Adam Gittlin, a New York–based commercial
real estate professional, explores the fast-paced (and fictional) life of commercial
real estate investor
Jonah Gray, who spends his nights jet setting and his days collecting on the
deals that pay for his Park Avenue penthouse and designer suits. When a family
friend presents him with the deal of a lifetime, Gray jumps at the chance,
sinking a half-billion dollars into the New York office market. Within days
of signing on, however, he finds himself embroiled in public and personal scandals.
Caught in a web of danger, death, and deception, Gray must put everything — yes,
even the suits — on the line to close this deal. The book costs $24.95.
