In Gerald A. Browne's spellbinding New York Times best seller, a man bent on vengeance infiltrates a cabal of blue-blooded bankers that have taken over the Mafia.
In a quiet suburb of New York City, a mansion on a gated estate houses one of the most powerful crime syndicates in the United States - an elite Mafia whose dons belong to the finest families that the WASP establishment has to offer. Millions of dollars flow in and out of 19 Purchase Street, toted by bagmen who gladly risk everything to share in the syndicate's profits. Nothing disrupts operations - until a courier gets a dangerous idea.
To avenge a loved one's death, Drew Gainer joins the money-laundering scheme, plotting a billion-dollar heist with the help of a beautiful, daring woman and pitting himself against a ruthless opponent.
From New York to Paris to Zurich, Gainer risks his life to become the winner who takes all. But who is really conning whom?

Enjoyable, but not worth repeating the experience
What did you like best about 19 Purchase Street? What did you like least?
Apart from the ending, which was truly pathetic on a par with... 'and they woke up to find it was all a dream!'..., plus the constant, boring reference to money, this was an enjoyable story.
What three words best describe Charles Constant’s voice?
Annoying, annoying, annoying. He really can't pronounce English words properly, even allowing for his American pronounciation!
Was 19 Purchase Street worth the listening time?
Yes - ish.
