by Robert K. McDonald

Against a Wall Street backdrop of big paydays and bigger losses, "The Altar Boy" is a wry tale of two bankers on the bumpy road to enlightenment: one finding perfection in the personals, the other seeking direction from a couple in their twilight years. Thier paths intersect in the person of Cody Meade, an eccentric, lusty woman with a firm grip on what she wants. The result is moving and funny, much like the sound of the heart.

"The Altar Boy" is rich with colorful characters who linger in the imagination-- a brisk read for anyone who has experienced the frustration of moving forward while looking back.

Mr. McDonald offers a grounded, intelligent snapshot of life on Wall Street and beyond, peopled by a variety of memorable characters. Perhaps surprisingly, given the Wall Street setting, the older personalities are drawn with particular flair and heart. The protagonist, too, emerges as vivid and real: more someone you know than just a character in a book. A fine first novel.
The Altar Boy is a quick, fun read. McDonald's tour through the twisted world of investment banking and the frenzied world of big city romance, left me laughing. It was a treat.
