“A fast-paced thriller—action, adventure, romance, even a morality tale. Frey touches all the bases in this fast-paced thriller that combines Robert Ludlum with Barbarians at the Gate.”—Newark Star-Ledger
“Ruthless financial terror.”—Chicago Tribune
Mace McLain is the hottest young gun at Wall Street’s last great independent baking firm. Now he’s just been named co-manager of a multibillion-dollar “vulture fund,” an ultra-risky real estate scheme preying on naïve investors. The powerful senior partner is willing to bet the bank on it. So is Kathleen Hunt, a gorgeous investment banker with high-level contacts. What do they know that he doesn’t?
With the help of a beautiful graduate student named Rachel Sommers, McLain follows a bizarre trail that stretches from the jungles of Latin America to Washington and the secret councils of the CIA . . . where deception shadows his ever move—and where even the most irrefutable evidence can’t diminish his deadly risk. . . .
