• Bestselling author: One of the most popular and acclaimed African-American novelists of his generation, Omar Tyree has had five New York Times bestsellers, in addition to numerous other national lists over the years. Pecking Order, with its perfect blend of money, sex, and vulnerability, gives his fans another book to rave about.
• Final novel: Smart, sexy, and sharply observed, Pecking Order confirms that Omar Tyree, as he moves on to film projects, retires from fiction at his best.
• A sexed-up MBA case study: Pecking Order charts the dizzying rise of Ivan Davis, an accountant who decides to promote networking events among his rich, famous, and frivolous clients. After partnering with Lucina Gallo, the reigning diva of San Diego’s nightlife culture, Ivan hits the big time, and finds himself thrust into the limelight and lands at the doorstep of easy access to women, cash, private jets, and multimillion-dollar real estate. Tyree spins this breathless tale with his usual skill while presenting all the details of his protagonist’s rise to the top, from building website traffic to making property investments. It all makes for a “Horatio Alger update with bling” (Kirkus Reviews) that’s as instructional as it is impossible to put down.
