Sirens Over the Hudson by M. J. Neary
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Sirens Over the Hudson by M.J. Neary is truly a departure for this talented author. With a laser-like focus, Neary explores the depraved and privileged lives of the rich in Westchester, NY. A financial crisis is looming, and the various characters in this story are pulled into controversy and dire situations that drastically change and challenge their lives. When Gregory King, the son of a wealthy Wall St. shark, gets involved with his friend's girlfriend, the sparks fly and doom is never far away. As is reflective of the times, and due to his dark skin tone and background, with time and as the story progresses, Gregory becomes a target of Islamaphobia. An interesting story that examines the secret lives of the exceedingly rich, it also makes a sad, probing commentary on controversial subjects that resonate through society. Politics, sex, race, and money make this a wicked reading experience. Highly recommend.
