Publisher's Summary

The Bottom of the Sky is an aching rags to riches family saga that surges from rural squalor into the opulent power chambers of Wall Street and Silicon Valley. The story contrasts the 30-year struggles of an abused sister and brother who seek to reclaim themselves from their abhorrent past. One is abandoned to a life of sexual desecration and addiction. The other escapes with his demons to wield fragile, uncanny genius and unrelenting ambition to amass staggering wealth.Greed and betrayal power a tense plot involving the FBI, the SEC, and billions of dollars fleeced from brokerage customers and shareholders, while isolation and envy lead to deadly confrontations back home. It is a riveting tale of two disparate worlds joined by one desperate man and his ultimate redemption.

I have long been a fan of great stories told well, and this is one. The author's words are beautiful and poignant. The story is masterfully told, and no less so than by Scott Brick, the narrator. I'd love to see these two pros team up again and add to the living library of American literature.

Thick as a Brick!

Great fiction brings you into the story so deeply that you forget it is fiction. With audio books two things are necessary, great writing and great narration and I don't mean good but great. This book has both. Scott Brick has always been my favorite Audible narrator and this was his best performance yet. The writing is incredible and I say congratulations to Pack. Can't wait for the next one!
