Overview

When he’s recruited by Walker & Company, the most distinguished investment bank on Wall Street, starry-eyed MBA Richard Blum can’t believe his luck. Sadly, his fantasy world comes to a crashing end when he learns that some crooks have a taste for Gucci loafers and Saville Row suits. CEO Jack Grass and Mickey Steinberg, head of Mergers and Acquisitions, are running an insider trading ring right under his nose. Even worse, to keep the Feds off their trail, they made sure Richard appeared to be a key player. Richard approaches Harold Milner, the firm’s leading client who’s sorry he ever got dragged into this mire, and suggests they join forces to clear their names. Together with Kathy Cella, Richard’s new love and savvy colleague, they work out a way to put the SEC and Feds on the scent of the real scam artists.

Is there time to execute the plan before they’re tossed into jail? Or will they be found out and murdered? As the plot intensifies, readers who enjoy suspense thrillers with gritty dialogue and whirlwind action will find this unique tour de force impossible to put down.

Meet the Author

David Lender writes thrillers based on his over 25-year career as a Wall Street investment banker.

    Great book, his best

    I loved his other 2 but this is his best. He takes his great characters, great dialog and intricate plotting and ties it all together in this one. A novice investment banker stuck in an insider trading ring with the only way out to team up with the client who appears to have compromised himself by being the dealmaker as the focal point of the ring. Great stuff.

    Also check out Trojan Horse and The Gravy Train, but by all means read this one.

    Great Thriller in the vein of The Firm

    This was my first Lender book and since then I've read Trojan Horse. I loved them both. Bull Street is a pulse-racing read that seduces you early on to like its protagonist, Richard Blum, a freshly-minted MBA who lands on Wall Street in his dream job with the hottest investment bank of his day. He learns fast, and one thing he finds out is that his firm is a massive insider trading ring. In no time the SEC is after him and so are his bosses. He has to scramble to stay alive and out of the clutches of the SEC. I saw Lender on Bloomberg TV and they called him "the Grisham of Wall Street." It's true. This is one to take for the weekend, rain or shine.

    Great thriller, real dialog and settings

    Great, suspenseful thriller. Builds like a piece of music until you won't stop reading. The dialog puts you in the scene and well-crafted descriptions of people and places make it all completely, sometimes frighteningly, real.

    Simply Terrific

    This is a gripping read from the first page. It's a thriller that builds suspense in layers, shifting points of view and tugs at your emotions. Don't bother contemplating reviews or the setting (Wall Street), just buy it and read it.

    I loved it!

    This is the 3rd of Lender's books I've read and they keep getting better. Bull Street is a tense thriller with a great romance and another wonderful story of an older man, Harold Milner, teaming up with our young hero, Richard Blum, a kid who's in way over his head. Kathy is his feisty love interest who helps teach him the ropes on Wall Street and more! Great book!
