Reviewed by Lit Amri for Readers' Favorite In P.T. Dawkins’s “The Ponzi”, Michael Franklin Junior is steadily losing his father’s clients; a young, honest broker that just couldn't live up to his father’s name and refuses to use any of the old-timers’ method in the stock markets. His boss, Harry Lugarno, is trying to make him quit before the young Franklin drags him and other brokers down. To make matters worse, his girlfriend of two years, Jennifer – whose real name is Sandy Allen – is actually a felon, and she has a plan. It was hard for me to sympathize with Junior. The young broker is honest but hard-headed. His relationship with his father is more like rivalry between two brokers instead of what we see between a father and son. I love the author’s straightforward writing style. There is no unnecessary description; everything is to the point but still entertains and the dialogue is sharp. The great thing about “The Ponzi” is that P.T. Dawkins is able to tell a story while giving the readers an insider lesson in the investment world. Basing it on real life events, Dawkins draws on real happenings, and stays true to the natural lingo of each character, which makes all of their experiences more real to the reader. To conclude, “The Ponzi” is a novel that will engage and entertain readers. It is one of those books that make you want to give it to the next person you come across, with a “you have to read this.”
