Adam Gittlin Home Page

Everything about Jonah Gray screams success--expensive clothes, a Park Avenue penthouse, and a seven-figure income. A cutthroat, rainmaking New York City commercial real estate broker, Jonah craves opulence and power. He beds models, romps the globe on weekends, and sees the world as his for the taking. Jonah Gray has it all. Or at least, he had it all.

When Andreu Zhamovsky, a close family friend, presents Jonah with the deal of a lifetime, Jonah jumps at the chance. All Jonah has to do is act quickly, invest half a billion dollars in prime NYC office buildings, and collect a huge payoff.

But there is much more to this deal than Jonah had ever contemplated, and this golden opportunity turns out to be anything but.

Along with the deal comes one of the world's rarest and most valuable antiques planted in Jonah's briefcase, and within days of signing on, Jonah is mysteriously thrust into the epicenter of an international and personal scandal.

Forced to explore a whole new territory where he can trust no one, and where danger, death, and deception lurk at every corner, Jonah will learn some painfully hard lessons about the quest for true wealth.

Taking risks has been the hallmark of Jonah's career. But this time, the stakes are much, much higher and Jonah will put everything--and everyone--he loves at risk.

Closing this deal could mean losing it all.

Professional Reviews

Review by David Pitt
In his second novel, Gittlin, a New York City commercial real-estate executive, introduces Jonah Gray, a NYC commercial real-estate executive whose life is a comfortable mixture of adrenaline, money, and sex. When an old friend approaches him with a sweet deal (a Russian company looking to spend a half-billion dollars on New York real estate needs a broker), Jonah smells a big profit. But before he has a chance to cash in, Jonah finds his life suddenly torn apart, his career in tatters, his very survival depending on his wits and his ability to navigate the underbelly of New York. The novel is a bit imitative: the protagonist appears to have stepped out of a Bret Easton Ellis novel (or at least a watered-down version of one), and the plot seems to be a riff on a Joseph Finder corporate thriller, but even so, it’s a sharply written tale, and Gittlin manages to generate plenty of suspense. Definitely worth a read.

Midwest Book Review
Midwest Book Review (May 2008)

There are very few rewards in life that do not carry related risks - and typically, the bigger the reward, the bigger the risk, and Jonah Grey quickly learns this in "The Deal". Jonah was set for life, he was a complete success in everything he did. What was one more deal to cement his place in the financial elite for the rest of his life? The risks finally catch up with him, as his latest deal goes from easy money to certain bankruptcy - of both his money and the very people he loves, quite quickly. Jonah goes through anything to avoid it. "The Deal" is a highly recommended thriller for community library collections, and for any reader who wants a captivating story from first page to last.
