A DEVILISHLY DARK THRILLER THAT EXPLORES HOW FAR A MAN WILL GO TO SURVIVE WHEN MONEY ISN’T ALWAYS ENOUGH TO GET EVERYTHING HE DESIRES.
Any wish fulfilled for the right price. That's the promise the organization behind The Desire Card gives to its elite clients. But sometimes the price is more menacing than anyone ever imagined.
Harrison Stockton has lived an adult life of privilege and excess. A high-powered job on Wall Street fuels his fondness for alcohol and pills at the expense of a family he has no time for. Quite suddenly, all of his luxuries come to a crashing halt when he loses his job and—at the same time—discovers he has just months left to live.
Desperate, and with seemingly nowhere else left to turn, Harrison activates his Desire Card. What follows is a gritty and gripping quest that takes him from New York City to the slums of Mumbai, where he’s forced to take chances and make decisions he hoped to never face. And when his moral descent threatens his wife and children, Harrison must decide whether to save himself at any cost…or do what’s right and break his bargain with The Desire Card.
A taut and fast-paced thriller, All Sins Fulfilled follows those indebted to this sinister organization—where the ultimate price is the cost of one’s soul.

“All Sins Fulfilled,” The third book in Goldberg’s Desire Card series, takes on the organization from an entirely different angle than the first two books in the series. Rather than follow an operative, this novel follows the experiences of a client, one whose wishes are fulfilled. Once again, we get someone down on his luck at the end of his rope. It’s Harrison, a Wall Street trader who thinks he’s one of the masters of the universe before his legs are cut out from under him and it all falls away- the job, the marriage, the morals.
All he has left is a card with a phone number which leads him to do things beyond morally bankrupt. Of course, as anyone who has ever had a genie in a bottle knows, wishes never come out the way you expect them to and someone somewhere has to pay the price. You know early in what Harrison’s ultimate request will be and you’ll guess who has to be sacrificed for it to come true. Nevertheless, you will feel his shock and horror at where this leads.
Ultimately perhaps this is a story of Redemption, but you begin to wonder if the clients are suckers too, caught in the Boss’s twisted web just as much as the masked operatives are.
This is the second of the series that I have read and I like it better than the other. I am not sure of. the order, but I have now read the 2nd and 3rd.
The story starts with an out of shape man carrying a suitcase being chased through Central Park. Then he gets caught. The book continues with the events that lead to that moment. We learn that the man works on Wall Street, is a serious alcoholic, and basically not a like-able guy. He hits a new low when he starts spewing blood and passes out when spending the night with a prostitute. She brings him to a hospital where he learns that his lover is shot and he will die without a replacement.
I liked this. I was pretty unhappy with the ending, but then it took a turn at the very last minute and redeemed itself. The middle was a little slow, but the beginning and end carried it well.

This is a 3 series book. I am so glad it was. This set can be stand-alone but, REALLY you will WISH you got the set, The first is book will make you wonder, and yes be careful what you wish you. hanks to @netgalley
And @wolfpack.publishing for providing me an e-arc of the entire set in exchange for an honest review. Brilliant books, you better clear your day or two to get 100% into these.
This was a great book. I loved every paragraph, every sentence and every word of this masterpiece! I read it in 12 hours, which is a lot for me to do! It had everything and more laid out in the novel! I sure hope she writes more! I am totally hooked!
Loved this book- a novel idea and hard to put down! It was well written and very exciting with lots of twists! The main character begins by just wanting a little excitement in his like and he gets it in spades! He finds a card that says all his desires will be fulfilled- I’ll leave it at that.
Thank you NetGalley for the ARC of this book.
I went in not knowing what to expect, and I am so glad I read this book! It is an "edge of your seat" thriller, that poses the question, "what price would you pay to get what you want?" I loved the premise of the book, and can't wait to read more from this author.
