Jack & Coke - A Novel
Publisher: Morgan James Fiction
Jack Ranger is a young journalist ready to set the world on fire.
As a freshly-minted college graduate he follows an enigmatic mentor on a quest to expose the corrupt governor of Massachusetts. But society’s institutions have a way of keeping themselves in power and Jack finds himself enveloped in conspiracy and sabotage that threatens to silence both the truth and his future.
In his attempt to re-write the rules, Jack creates Flint Media to breathe new life into the tired industry of truth-telling and to bring out the story that the world so desperately needs to hear. Flint Media takes Jack from the streets of Boston to the high stakes world of New York City, where his venture-backed startups risks flying too close to the sun. As Jack’s purpose bleeds from righteousness to vindication he struggles to reconcile his dreams with the reality of who he has become.
In a blend of “House of Cards” and “Silicon Valley,” Jack & Coke explores the relationship between our ability to preserve transparency and this generation’s struggle to “make it” in a world of stratifying inequality.
