"A story ripe with corruption, ethics, and political intrigue"

"A clear message was being sent. Hold onto your secrets.
Or live or die not knowing what tomorrow will bring."

OVERVIEW
(from Goodreads)
Beyond the mirrored windows of the city's high-rise buildings; the landscape of a metropolis that holds itself to the outskirts of the Hudson River, leaves a city that set the standard for corruption and overshadowed itself by the darkness of political deception. Behind the thriving neighborhoods of cultural scenery, the sixth borough had become a blanket that was once woven with the challenges of deceit versus ethics. No one knows what tomorrow will bring, but for integrity to prevail, an awakening would need to be brought to the city streets that were once plagued by the mysteries of Wall Street West.

REVIEW
The story is based on true events about an American citizen who worked at Goldman Sachs. He was so upset by the Twin Towers tragedy he decided to join the military. He served in Iraq and as most soldiers saw things that no one should see.  When he returned home he had trouble adjusting to life without being a soldier.
He had a meeting with Mayor Jackson.  The mayor told him to run for Congress telling him he wouldn't win but it would prepare him for the next election. He runs and loses.  Later he wins when he ran for councilman. That was only setting himself up for a bigger fight.  That being the most sought after election the city had ever witnessed.  Does he win?
Miles away, a jury returns a shocking verdict against some of the top aristocrats in history. It could never be imagined the secrets that were being withheld. Power rules and it takes power to run a city. Hence, the unveiling of the longest investigation into political corruption.
The author takes you from the corrupt to the new age of politicians. There will always be corruption, but we need those powerful people who care and aren't afraid to seek the truth and expose the corruption.
I liked the way the author took an ordinary American and showed the passion he had for his fellow Americans. Dr. Guarneri appears to have done quite a bit of research into the political world. I feel she just touched the surface of the corruption and the deep dark secrets that are hidden away.  The book is definitely an eye opener that all is not well with our government.  I'm sure most of us already have that idea. If this corruption can happen in one city, then it's everywhere. Some just close their eyes and look the other way, thinking so what.  They're going to do what they want.   That's wrong, as the author states.  We have a duty to expose those dark secrets.
We also have the duty to stand up for our country and do the best we can. Trust that many of us had in the government and the American people has diminished.  We must stand up and renew the hope and trust that once was uncorrupted. The author writes in hopes of helping to restore that hope and trust..I love the plot of the author's where a corrupt dynasty is taken down to their knees. Of course we all love to see the good guy win.  Not everyone is corrupted and deceitful. The sad thing is, I feel that there will always be deceit, corruption and deep, dark secrets no matter what.

I would give this book 4 EVIL EYES.

I was given a complimentary copy of WALL STREET WEST by Dr. Cristina Guarneri from Smith Publicity for my honest opinion.  No other compensation took place.
