Set in the turbulent second decade of the 20th Century, Behind Every Great Fortune™ chronicles the life and times of Otto Hermann Kahn, the financier and philanthropist whose fame was so great that he was immortalized as the iconic character with the moustache and top hat of the board game Monopoly.

Behind Every Great Fortune™ crackles with intrigue, ritual murder, sexual depravity, and betrayal, as the action races from the first terrorist attack on New York City to the assassination of the Archduke Ferdinand, the murder of Rasputin, the Russian Revolution, and the bloody devastation of WWI. Mr. Amoroso adroitly weaves historical facts with colorful characters of the day such as Margaret Sanger, Vaslav Nijinsky, Mata Hari, the mad monk Rasputin, and Commander James “Strafe” Oliver.

As the 100th anniversary of these events approaches, Behind Every Great Fortune™ presents a fresh look at the seminal events that shaped the world. According to one reviewer it is an “Exciting, imaginative novel with many scenes of high dramatic intensity.”

About the Author Frank Amoroso is an attorney who was born in New York City. He grew up near Long Island’s Gold Coast where Otto Hermann Kahn built Oheka Castle his monument to power and wealth. Behind Every Great Fortune is Mr. Amoroso’s initial book in the Oheka Chronicles trilogy.

Before embarking on a writing career, Mr. Amoroso practiced law for many years and was a senior partner in a large northeast law firm. “Law is a wonderful training ground for writing,” says Amoroso, “It’s all about communication and persuasion with the added requirement of precision.” From his days on Law Review, to clerking for a Judge on New York’s highest court, to working as chief of staff for a NYS Senator, to working as a prosecutor and teaching a course in White Collar Crime, to handling litigation for Fortune 500 companies, his career revolved around words, written and spoken.

A number of exciting projects are in the works. Mr. Amoroso is currently working on Book 2 of the Oheka Chronicles, and Book 3 is in the scoping phase. In addition, he is writing a companion book to Behind Every Great Fortune™ and is writing the memoirs of a Korean War veteran that will be poignant, heroic and tragic at the same time.

Mr. Amoroso currently resides in North Carolina with his wife and family. Baseball and cooking are his favorite pastimes. He is available for lectures and book signings.
