All Through the Night by Davis Bunn
"Mr. Bunn's extraordinary writing and thorough knowledge of the high finance world make this captivating story both believable and entertaining. "
Having lived a life full of broken relationships and unfulfilled promises, Wayne's past is like an overflowing garbage can. His military special-ops experience is something he'd rather forget. And yet it proves invaluable when he gets himself sweet-talked into helping a community of close-knit seniors who've been scammed.
Tatanya, a friend of Wayne’s sister and a high-powered lawyer, asks Wayne to take on an unusual case where her wealthy employer believes he's been visited by an angel. Despite being a pastor’s kid, his first assumption is this is a cruel hoax to confuse and manipulate the weak and helpless. With a financial analyst's skills and the tenacity of a warrior, Wayne seeks to unmask dangerous liaisons hiding behind a corporate, power-hungry machine.
Most of us expect our heroes to be wise, strong and good-looking. You don't expect a modern day warrior to be named Wayne Grusza or to have a crazy assortment of senior citizens as his fan club and new neighbors.
Mr. Bunn's extraordinary writing and thorough knowledge of the high finance world make this captivating story both believable and entertaining. The storyline wrestles with questions of faith, community and heroism. His characters are flawed, passionate, ordinary, quirky and at different places on their faith journeys.
The depth-exploring descriptions of Wayne, Tatyana, Victoria and the rest of the gang are superbly crafted. The reader will find it simple enough to imagine how each character’s life will continue after All Through The Night concludes.
