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."

This fantastic novel is a real thriller in all senses of the word. The author,James Grippando, moves the action along at a quick pace, moving from scene to scene in a way that you do not want to put the book down.
