The Letter Writer by Robert Mercer-Nairne is a compelling satirical spoof of those frantic get-rich-quick schemes and too-good-to-be-true financial intrigues that were to climax in the great stock market crash of 2000. In a prosperous Seattle suburb, an assemblage of ordinary and seemingly well-off individuals have the (mis)fortune to encounter a free copy of "The Rich Man's Investment Letter". They sign up for one of his Golden Cruises and entire the stock market ... just before the 2001 crash! At times scathing, witty, rollicking funny or all too serious, The Letter Writer is a compelling parable of greed, overreaching, vanity, and the human struggle to understand what truly matters in life ... when not diverted by material wants and needs. Although a work of fiction, The Letter Writer is strongly recommended reading for anyone taking "flyers" in stock market schemes in the hope of getting rich quick.
