The Arsonist

Praise for The Arsonist

The lead character Cal Minor is a living, breathing Wall Street animal.  He transforms from a hard-charging, well-financed party boy to a man who develops a global "green" consciousness and is willing to "burn down" one of Wall Street's Masters of the Universe.  Emotionally astute, and devilishly funny, Ken Coulson's novel will fill the long overdue absence for fans' of The Wolf of Wall Street. ” - In Media Res
