Don Korn’s Anderson Crown is unique!

No one manages money like Anderson Crown.

That’s because no other money manager works out of the back room of a dentist’s office in Greenwich Village.

Andy would like nothing more than to pick stocks and eat pizza.

But that’s not how his practice works. Clients bring him all their problems, financial and otherwise.

So Andy gets involved with their kids, their bills, their wills, their love affairs, their divorces....and their murders!

Between bites (and the occasional resort to fisticuffs), Andy manages to come up with surprising solutions.

Andy made waves in Payable On Death.

“What a treat! I loved the characters, the plot development, the humor, the flow that made it easy reading – I loved it all! — Connie Stone, President, Stepping Stone Financial

“A great read. Payable on Death is crammed with well defined and credible characters, nonstop action, love interests, accurate and informative financial and investment planning tidbits, and a rakish hero.” — Frank Butterfield, Principal, Homrich & Berg

“Payable on Death is a fun read. The flawed hero moves forward through an adventure, never quite getting what he wants but always, miraculously, getting what he needs. Buy a copy and take it along the next time you go somewhere. It will make you laugh and the time fly.” – Bill Baldwin, President, Pillar Financial Advisors

“I routinely get annoyed at authors who get the financial part wrong but Payable on Death was perfect on all the technical stuff. Andy Crown is a super character, with his self deprecating humor. He reminded me of Nelson DeMille’s John Corey character, but he’s an RIA!”– Chris Cordaro, Chief Investment Officer, RegentAtlantic Capital

“Payable on Death was great – Anderson Crown is one of my new favorite fictional characters! I loved the “Columbo”-like ending and I can’t wait for Anderson’s next mystery.” – Marty Finn, Managing Partner, Lavelle & Finn, LLP
“Thoroughly enjoyable....great plot....a real page turner. Thank heaven I could stop myself at page 249 or I might have spent the day charging through the whole thing! Anderson Crown cracked me up. It was great to read a mystery novel with QTIP, Blind Trusts and Asset Allocation woven into the plot!” – Elfrena Foord, Partner, Foord, Van Bruggen, Ebersole & Pajak

“Payable on Death gave me a feeling of the old private eye-type books, where there's a lot going on all the time.” – Howard Recht, CLU, ChFC

“This book is a quick read for some afternoons at the beach or a few sessions on the tread mill. And I kept getting a craving for pizza and beer while I was reading it.” – Ed Mendlowitz, CPA, Partner, WithumSmith+Brown, PC

Catch up with Andy Crown as soon as you’re in the mood for a comic caper that will leave you hungry for the next course!

    Very interesting mystery!

    I love books where I learn something while being entertained, and this book fills the bill. The author is very good at intertwining financial knowledge with a well crafted mystery. I'm loving it!

    Highly Recommended

    This is a fast paced book of incredible adventure, suspense and very well defined characters. The humor throughout the book is clever and fun. I couldn't put it down and felt so sad when it was over. I highly recommended this to anyone who loves mysteries and loves to laugh.
