In this timely stand-alone thriller ripped from the
headlines, New York Times bestselling author James
Grippando, whom the Wall Street Journal calls "a
writer to watch," explores a world in which the destruction
of financial institutions and the people who run them can
occur in a matter of hoursâ€”perhaps even minutes.
At thirty-one, Michael Cantella is a rising star at Wall
Street's premier investment bank, Saxton Silvers. Everything
is going according to plan until Ivy Layton, the love of his
life, vanishes on their honeymoon in the Bahamas.
Fast-forward four years. It's the eve of his thirty-fifth
birthday, and Michael is still on track: successful career,
beautiful new wife, piles of money. Reveling in his good
fortune, Michael logs in to his computer, enters his
password, and pulls up his biggest investment account:
Zero balance. He tries another, and another. All of
them zero. Someone has wiped him out. His only clue is a new
e-mail message: Just as planned. xo xo.
With these three words Michael's life as he knows it is
liquidated, along with his investment portfolio. Saxton
Silvers is suddenly on the brink of bankruptcy, and he's the
leading suspect in its ruin. Michael is left alone, framed,
and facing divorce, with undercover FBI agents afoot,
spyware on his computer, and mysterious e-mails from a
"JBU." Embroiled in corporate espionage, he's desperate to
clear his name and realizes that several signs point to his
first wife, Ivy, as a key player. But what if Ivy has come
back from the dead, only to visit on Michael a fate worse
With echoes of The Firm, James Grippando's newest
thriller takes readers to the inner circle of Wall Street,
illustrating the very real dangers of what Warren Buffett
called "financial weapons of mass destruction."
