Henry Chase is every woman's worst nightmare. Nicknamed "The Assassin" by his Wall Street brethren, he'll lie, seduce, betray, manipulate--whatever it takes--to stay on top, in the boardroom and the bedroom. There's not a speck of humanity left in his steely soul until one night when his conscience catches him by surprise and demands a reckoning.
With the help of a mysterious young woman, Henry confesses to a list--a list of the lives he has ruined in the pursuit of power and riches. Prodded by his newly found alter ego, Henry embarks on a road trip of redemption--he sets out to make it right for those in his past, and maybe for himself in the future.
For anyone who ever wondered just what makes a man tick, HENRY'S LIST OF WRONGS exposes the inner workings of the male mind, its carefully hidden motivations, desires, and fears. A story with humor, romance, and sting, it might even make you confront your own list of regrets.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book was light hearted with serious undertones. You get a moral without knowing about it. The flow of this novel is incredible and if John Scott Shepherd's novel Henry's List of Wrongs is where the future of fiction is headed, I'm thankful to be a teen!
Henry is a guy you love to hate. Until, that is, he gets an emotional punch in the gut that makes him question his life as 'The Assassin,' a 28-year-old Wall Street takeover king... and his world falls apart. Enter Sophie, a wacky chambermaid plus psych grad student who takes Henry on a journey designed to redress his many wrongs and earn him forgiveness. Along the way, Henry and Sophie create some sparks of their own, and Sophie turns out to be more psycho than psych student. Fast-paced, funny, and abounding in surprises, 'Henry's List of Wrongs' is a great ride. It's not hard to see that Shepherd got his start in films, and this hip, edgy book will no doubt launch an equally successful literary career. Don't miss it.
