Harry Bogen, from I Can Get It For You Wholesale, is back on Seventh Avenue and he's swindling a loan shark. This time he actually gets his, but good. He's left flat broke, wanted by the law and his sweet Jewish mother dies. The guy is so loathsome I was almost happy to see it. Not his mother dying though, that was too much. Published in 1938. Glad it's over on the whole. Now I can get on to other things. ( )

No descriptions found.

Out of the game and itching for action, Harry schemes up a way back to the top in this engrossing sequel to I Can Get It for You Wholesale When Harry Bogen became king of the garment district, he blossomed into a natural-born tyrant: imperious, cruel, and quick with a lie. But after he built his empire, he blew it up, leaving his partners in jail and securing the whole of the fortune for himself. It takes only three months for Harry to find that retirement does not suit him. To get back in the action, he'll have to spin a lie that would be his biggest yet. The scheme starts with an order for one thousand dresses, bought at cut-rate price from a vendor who can't afford not to sell. From there, Harry raises the stakes, juggling deals and spinning stories as fast as he possibly can. Will he secure himself fortune everlasting, or will this little Napoleon meet his Waterloo? Win or lose, Harry Bogen will keep scrapping every inch of the way. This ebook features a foreword by Alistair Cooke.… (more)
