Self-Publishing Spotlight: Vineyard Days

Martha’s Vineyard will never be the same after Vineyard Days, the riveting new novel about the financial crisis and murder from author Gene Pisasale.

Vineyard Days is set in the world-famous playground of the rich during the dog days of the 2008 market crash. It’s where Jim and Natalie are expecting to spend a relaxing, uneventful vacation in Edgartown – with stops at Moshup Beach, Chappaquiddick and Menemsha… but all that changes when police discover a bizarre double murder aboard a multimillion-dollar yacht.

Soon the couple find themselves drawn into an investigation that includes a wealthy businessman with ties to Wall Street and the Mafia. Jim gets his hands on a mysterious satchel which washed up on the beach and belonged to one of the deceased, drawing interest from a potentially sinister Vineyard visitor.

The satchel may hold clues that could shed light not only on two people’s deaths, but also the financial contagion that is gripping markets around the world – if Jim can survive long enough to unlock its secrets. Written by an investment professional, Vineyard Days crackles with insider quips and insight as it addresses the effect of collapsing giants like Lehman Bros. and AIG on the psyche of the elite. Its remarkably detailed portrait of Martha’s Vineyard will resonate with anyone who has ever populated the pristine beaches and tony shops, with action set in many local businesses such as Edgartown’s Seafood Shanty and Menemsha’s Beach Plum Inn.

Smart and savvy, Vineyard Days is about murder, fraud, greed, desire and the unknown lengths some will take to attain and keep money – even if it means dying for it.
