Inhaltsangabe: A courtroom massacre the night of President Richard M. Nixon's resignation sets in motion a series of events that culminate more than forty years later on the eve of what could be the last presidential election as a terrifying weapon threatens to topple a nearly bankrupt United States.
The U.S. is in chaos. Hordes of the jobless fight private security forces daily. A cadre of trillionaires control nearly all of the world's money. And health care is granted to the winners of game shows. Half a world away, in an abandoned ancient desert city, two mercenaries fight each other for a computer virus whose terrible power is an enigma to them. Yet, they must join forces to battle a corporate army of killer drones, greedy terrorists and double-dealing bankers as they track the man driven to remake the world's economy in his own image. As they cross the globe, they untangle a deadly plot controlled by those at the highest level of government and an accidental president's long-held dark secret. Their success in stopping the weapon ultimately hinges on a young, irresolute U.S. Marshal. Her singular act unravels a four-decades-old plot so shocking that it ultimately changes the course of history.
Easy Squeezy, the second thriller by Pulitzer finalist and veteran investigative reporter Paul D'Ambrosio, draws from economic turmoil and political conflagration to craft a fast-paced, international novel that is not far from today's harsh realities. Fans of his debut thriller, Cold Rolled Dead, will see the return of psychologist Sister Maris Stella complete with cigarettes, her Jersey ''attitude,'' and uncanny insight. The Jersey Shore, too, proves a powerful setting for the stark opening and stunning ending of Easy Squeezy.
About the Author: Paul D'Ambrosio is the Investigations Editor for the Asbury Park (NJ) Press, one of the largest newspapers in Gannett Co. Inc. A highly respected investigative journalist, he is a 2010 Pulitzer Prize Gold Medal finalist and one of the most honored newspaper writers in the nation, having won many national journalism writing awards, defeating the best work from The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times and The Wall Street Journal. His work has led to the exposé of corrupt political deals, crooked military contractors, dangerous doctors, faulty hospitals, land scammers and government waste. Several long-time New Jersey politicians have lost re-election because of D'Ambrosio's work, which has been credited with igniting an ethics reform movement in New Jersey deemed ''the most corrupt state in the nation'' by the district's U.S. Attorney. His work has directly led to the passage of 23 New Jersey government ethics laws, and the state's open public records law. During his 25-year career, D'Ambrosio has covered more than 100 homicides and numerous criminal court cases. He is a nationally known expert in a branch of journalism called Computer-Assisted Reporting, which uses sophisticated computer programs to identify government corruption and waste. He has lectured about investigative reporting at national conferences as well as at Harvard, Syracuse University and the University of Southern California. Among his awards are the prestigious Selden Ring Award for Investigative Reporting (the richest prize given for investigative reporting), National Press Club Awards, Scripps Howard Public Service Award and the National Headliner Award for Public Service. He lives in southern New Jersey with his wife and two sons. Easy Squeezy is his second book.
