Grit is the sequel to the critically acclaimed novel The Vig by Author John M. Nuckel.

John Nuckel has worked in the financial industry for over thirty years and has met enough character to fill many books.

The Vig; The Beginning of the most corrupt decade in the history of Wall Street was a good time to steal a little bit of money from a lot of people. Frank McGinley, a trading floor specialist with a fondness for vodka, uncovers a scam to skim money from traders accounts and accepts forty grand to look the other way. He has no idea he's landed in the middle of an ongoing federal investigation of a Ponzi schemer turned violent. The Vig is the story about the seamy side of Wall Street rarely seen by the public.

GRIT follows Carla and Frank McGinley as they try to mend their damaged souls. One seeks revenge, the other redemption. As they careen towards their inevitable confrontation, a pretty lounge singer, a St. Louis gangster, a drug dealer and a pompous hedge fund manager are left in their wake. GRIT will determine who will finally be free and who will have to live with the knowledge of what they have become. This novel was written by a true Wall Street insider. As a former hedge fund broker and partner in a risk arbitrage firm, he has known the sinners and saints in the industry. The best and worst of them have one thing in common: GRIT.
