Overview

Caught as a hostage in a baffling terrorist hold-up in a deli in Union Square, Danny is a victim of unfortunate circumstances – yet another in a series of malfunctions in his meaningless life. Except, this one will be his last.

Managing to stay humorous despite the constant stream of misfortunes in his life, Danny accepts his fate, just as he has accepted his life. But he is unaware of the fact that there are other hostages there with him that day – brilliant corporate executives – that have a lot to lose. Or of the fact that their survival could hinge on Danny himself, who has absolutely nothing to lose.

Seemingly unrelated to all of this are two private detectives in the glamour and opulence of Monaco, hot in pursuit of the men who conspired to kill a young Swiss heiress. What they uncover instead is a stunning conspiracy spanning the Atlantic. The murder attempt was just the beginning – the terrorist plot could well be the horrific culmination.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Corporate intrigue and blue-collar ingenuity come together in a complex international mystery. Easteridge's characters... are sympathetically drawn, compelling the reader to keep the pages turning... The novel's well-illustrated moments of excitement hold interest.

Meet the Author

James Easteridge has done all kinds of things before finally taking to writing. He has been an entrepreneur, salesperson, business analyst, and computer programmer. He has lived and worked in and around New York City for the past fifteen years. He has traveled widely around the world on business and pleasure.

He regularly interacts with a variety of people, all of whom are interesting characters in their own right. Over the years, his experiences have strengthened his knowledge of the human heart and mind, something he believes should be evident in his characters.
He loves spinning a good yarn while he can. The Brooklyn Breakdown is his second novel. He has also written The Oxbury Proposal, an online title, which can be purchased from Amazon for the Kindle, or from Barnes and Noble for the Nook.

    Entertaining & Riveting!

    Easteridge's sophomore effort makes for an excellent read. Characters are totally believable. The plot is well-written. The non-linear narrative seems to be his forte, and Easteridge masterfully exploits it yet again. He shows off his knowledge of the Street, which is certainly interesting if you're into that kind of thing. The descriptions of Switzerland and Monaco are vivid. Easteridge describes them as if he's a native. But Brooklyn and Manhattan is where he is truly in his elements. As always, Easteridge's women are beautiful, while men are dashing. Danny Miller breaks the mold a little by being the lovable loser. Overall, a great novel. I was a little disappointed that this was not the prequel to The Oxbury Proposal, but it was a great investment nevertheless.
