The Money Game is an urban crime thriller in which the main characters are forced into a kidnapping/ransom plot that disrupts their individual plans to begin life anew. Marshon Johnson, gambling kingpin of the East Side, and the benevolent operator of a house of prostitution, had planned to relocate to an idyllic Caribbean island. There, he and his best friend, Richey Stanton, an unsuccessful actor, would establish an innovative gambling operation that includes a “private lottery.” Their lady friends have other ideas, however. Gail Thomas, a successful financial executive, wants Marshon to use his ill-begotten gains to become a respectable businessman. Richey’s significant other, Carmen Salazar, proposes that she and Richey revive their artistic dreams by forming a traveling entertainment troupe. Ace Semanski, a racist and psychopath, cleverly manipulates his new acquaintances to serve as “buffers” in a scheme he conceived while in prison. His other pawns include Kandie Givens, a needy single mother of three, and “Country” Long, a mentally challenged factory worker. As the kidnapping unfolds, it generates a vortex of violence, betrayal, death and confusion. The Money Game is a study of the critical influences that shape lives and life — childhood trauma, prejudice, cultural values, social pressures, career choices, love, hate, greed, hope, wisdom, fate, and pure luck.

Ever get the feeling the staff want to kill you?
After a government sanctioned hit goes spectacularly wrong, Mossad agent Thomas is blamed for the mission’s failure by his superiors, ousted before completing his very first job. Desperate to prove himself, Thomas accepts an offer from his former handler, Yakov, to assassinate Jacob Okonjo, the head of the African Union. It seems Jacob is allowing certain parties to control Africa’s lucrative diamond trade, and in doing so has made some powerful enemies. But like that Mossad hit-team caught on camera in Dubi a few years back, how is Thomas supposed to terminate such a prominent figure without being caught on CCTV? The answer: to work undercover as a room-service waiter at a top London hotel, where, in a few months’ time, Jacob Okonjo will be staying. It’s the perfect plan. Jacob is to be administered an untraceable poison, and afterwards, even if there is an investigation, a trusted member of staff like Thomas will be above suspicion. That’s the idea, anyway. In the meantime, he’s to suffer month after month of boring, menial employment, serving rich, famous people dinner, when he should be making a name for himself amongst the intelligence community. Because you can bet this never happened to Bond or Bourne. Never had to work for tips, subjugating themselves like some average, everyday citizen…
