A novel of greed and self-delusion set in the economic boom of the 1980s. Joe Stratford, a divorced 40-year old realtor, wants a new start. Marcus Burns, a former IRS agent, has some get-rich-quick schemes he thinks will interest Joe. Joe betrays his principles to go along with the schemes. From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "A Thousand Acres" comes a masterly novel about some very American seductions: money, sex, and real estate. "Good Faith" is an extraordinary story about ordinary people caught up in the exotic 1980s version of the American Dream, as greed and financial game-playing explode on Main Street.

A well written book, but one I couldn't wait to finish. The characters are not likeable and you get an uncomfortable feeling as you read it. Hard to explain.
