In For A Pounding by Donald Jay Korn

Don Korn’s Anderson Crown is back!

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.

First, there was 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

Now, Anderson Crown returns, In For A Pounding:

“Love the book!” —Natalie Choate, Esq., author of Life and Death Planning for Retirement Benefits

"Like Don’s first book, I read this one in about a day. It’s hard to put down, you get so engrossed in the action. Like the first book, you get reviews of some special New York restaurants, too." — Eva Rosenberg, EA, Publisher of

“Fast paced, enjoyable and addictive. Wish my practice was as exciting as Anderson Crown's!” - Bill Brennan, Founder, Capital Management Group, LLC

“I thoroughly enjoyed Greenwich Village investment manager Anderson Crown helping a client by solving a murder – then another, and another – by taking the time-honored investigative strategy of following the money to a new level. Crown is often irreverent – what private eye type isn’t? – but he’s usually the smartest guy in the room and always the most honest.” – Paul Katzeff, Personal Finance Writer, Investor’s Business Daily

“It’s refreshing to see murders solved by a tax proficient investment advisor! — Roger Lusby, Partner, Frazier & Deeter LLC

Payable On Death and In For A Pounding are both available on Kindle and Nook. 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!

This is a fabulous read!! The humor and suspenseful adventure never stop. It was impossible to put down. I loved the characters especially Anderson Crown. Donald Korn also managed to create a vivid portrait of New York City and Greenwich Village. I hope that there will be more tales of the adventures and misadventures of Anderson Crown. Anyone who likes to laugh and to read about wild adventures will love this book!!

I enjoyed this book immensely. It is very well written, with the protagonist Anderson Crown and a host of other interesting characters spinning a fast paced and highly enjoyable story line with many twists and turns. A great follow-up to Korn's first novel Payable on Death!
