Yesterday John Fontanelli was just a pizza delivery guy in New York City. One day later, he's the richest man in the world. One trillion dollars - one million times one million - $1,000,000,000,000: more money than anyone could imagine.

The youngest male descendant would be fated to oversee the fortune for the good of humanity. John relishes his new life of luxury, rubbing elbows with royalty, buying up corporations, fielding a flood of beautiful women - until one day the phone rings, and a mysterious stranger tells the trillionaire that he knows what dirty secrets lie behind the fortune...

Best writer I've heard in years- a must listen
(no spoilers) An emotional rollercoaster, really feel empathy with the main character John Fontanelli. The author is a superb wordsmith.
John Fontanelli. I really fealt for him and the life he had been through. I can't think of anyone who would handle getting $1 trillion without something going wrong...
He's an excellent voice actor. He is very easy to understand and comforting to listen to.
It made me late for work! I would remain stuck in my car not wanting to leave it. Eventually I started listening to it on my earphones in work!
Please translate more of Eschbach's books. He is highly regarded in Germany and has many more german language books. I need someone to translate and record his books in English please!

Narration was good but the novel not so good. Tried this author as I had not read him before. I won't read him again.
No. The idea is good
Definitely not. Plot so drawn out and lengthy only to finish with the equivalent of a 7 year olds 'Then I woke up !'
