The Navigator Hardcover – Import, 11 Jun 2013
“Wall Street. Washington. Intelligence. The Navigator gives you the smartest, wildest ride of your life.” ―Norb Vonnegut, bestselling author of The Trust
“Pocalyko knows Wall Street and Washington and it shows in The Navigator. He skillfully weaves a web of intrigue that brings together both of those fascinating worlds in a neat, fast-paced package. The plot is deftly conceived and artfully executed, the action is everywhere, the characters are compelling and the ending is worth the wait.” ―Stephen Frey, New York Times bestselling author of Heaven's Fury
“A powerful first novel and the debut of an exciting new talent.” ―Harlan Coben, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Six Years
“Pocalyko was one tough dog back in the day when I jumped out of his helicopter--and no, you aren't cleared to know where and why. There's no better, more hard-hitting insider in finance, the intelligence community, or Washington politics. The Navigator is a brilliant novel, fast-paced, haunting, and as well executed as a night drop. Enjoy the ride, because here comes the deal of the century.” ―Richard Marcinko, New York Times bestselling author of Rogue Warrior: Blood Lies
“If you have any interest in high-powered businessmen or political leaders, you need to read this page-turner of a novel. It's a breakthrough in our emotional understanding of the impact history makes on our troubled emotional and financial present, while deeply affirming our future.” ―Justin A. Frank, M.D., New York Times Bestselling Author of Bush on the Couch and Obama on the Couch
“The combination of politics, international finance and intelligence make The Navigator a smart and fascinating read.” ―Kitty Pilgrim, international journalist, former CNN anchor, and bestselling novelist, author of The Explorer's Code and The Stolen Chalice.

I usually consider my summer reading to be somewhat indulgent, reading for entertainment and not intellectual gain, but I found this book to be somewhat educational through it description of the various processes and explanation of the motivations of the various parties. Even the spy craft was discussed in a manner similar to the TV show "Burn Notice." While the overall plot (and equity source) is definitely fiction, the individual scenes and motivations seemed realistic and true-to-life.
I recommend this as an interesting read even if you don't usually read action/thriller novels.
