WHAT he OFFERS YOU
Chris McGale provides a fascinating insight into the life of a man growing up quickly in a small Northern Ireland town during the troubles and moving to London working for a prominent Wall Street firm. Thrown into this, there are battles with gambling, a life-changing accident and the worst single atrocity in the history of the troubles in NI. Life is certainly not straight forward in this insight into a Million Dollar Investor.
