Amos Posner has a lovely house in the upscale Hamptons beach community of eastern Long Island. But recent events in Amos’s life are preventing him form enjoying it. His employer, an international trading firm, fired him after making him the scapegoat for some shady business deals. His wife, a highly successful Manhattan lawyer, has not taken kindly to his job situation, and their marriage is under considerable stress.
Allan was born and grew up in Brooklyn, when the Dodgers were still playing at Ebbets Field. He earned an MBA from Harvard Business School and spent almost twenty-five years as an executive in the international trading business, where he was exposed to a wide spectrum of people and cultural values. He draws on these encounters in his fiction writing to explore flaws in his characters that lead them into challenging situations. He lives in Amagansett, New York with his wife Susan.
