Amazon.com synopsis:

A heartbreaking portrayal of ambition, treachery, and deception, Jazz tells the story of Chris Sommers, an aspiring writer from New York, who travels to Paris in the hopes of meeting Amber, a mysterious and beautiful woman he has always been irresistibly drawn to.
Chris is soon thrust into a world where everyone seems to be playing a dangerous and corrupt game. Anything is permissible, and even secrets that have been locked away inside the most hidden drawers of the soul will resurface.
 
This book had a very Gastby-esque feel to it. So if you like The Great Gastby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, you’ll love this book. I’m not a huge fan of Gatsby, which was why I am giving it 3 1/2 stars. The author did an exceptional job of portraying the way the main character’s emotions towards Amber devolved from a pure idealistic love, down towards a physical obsession.
Though the author got pretty close to Fitzgerald’s style of writing, he was never really able to get the depth of character that The Great Gatsby has. But, ultimately, this was a good, quick read.
