Overview

Securities lawyer Susanna Sloane, married to but separated from the secretary of the treasury of the United States, is enlisted by a bankruptcy judge to lend her expertise in a securities matter regarding claw backs. The owner of a large, prestigious brokerage firm has been perpetrating a Ponzi scheme, systematically raiding his clients’ accounts, eventually forcing the firm into bankruptcy.
Susanna’s firm represents many of the victimized clients. The owner of the firm has fled the country, and the bankruptcy judge tells Susanna that she would be handsomely compensated if she could find the missing funds. Susanna questions whether that may present a conflict of interest with her clients.
With the aid of an influential acquaintance, a Greek billionaire, who subsequently becomes her lover, Susanna travels to Europe and discovers that most of the funds have been hidden in Liechtenstein. She successfully raids his accounts, wiring the funds back to the bankruptcy court. But confrontations between her husband and lover jeopardize the success of her mission.
The thief is on Cyprus and has made a deal with a vicious Russian Mafioso to engage in a heroin for cocaine swap which will, if successful, compensate for the funds Susanna wired out of his account in Liechtenstein. The Central Intelligence Agency enlists her cooperation in thwarting the drug deal. The CIA agents arrange a meeting between the gangster, the broker, Susanna, and themselves.
Things go badly when the Mafioso learns that the letter of credit taken out by the broker to pay for the heroin was valueless, and that her lover had used his influence with the bank to issue it. The Russian has been paid by the Colombians for his effort in brokering the deal, and fears that the Colombians will come after him. The thief is persuaded to turn himself in to the American Consulate for protection against the Mafioso. The Cyprus bank is instructed to wire the broker’s funds to the States, exactly as had been done in Liechtenstein.
Susanna returns home to learn that the furious Russian has put out a contract on her and the Greek. The CIA intervenes and suggests that while they attempt to locate and eliminate the Mafioso, she and the Greek seek refuge aboard his yacht. But Susanna discovers that the “CIA agents” are actually in the employ of her lover. She flees when the yacht docks in Aruba.
She learns that the bankruptcy judge has decided to recover a portion of the phantom profits in her clients’ accounts through a system called claw backs. She files suit to stop him. Through a series of bizarre legal maneuvers, and with behind-the-scenes assistance from her husband who wants to effect reconciliation, her clients are fully compensated.

Another thrilling novel by Kiner, and as in the rest, in this one also, the main protagonist is Susanna Sloane or as I like to call her S.S. In this one S.S. is a lawyer and her area of expertise is a security law, which her firm is all about. Anyway, to cut to the chase, she is representing her clients in a case against a fraud who cleared the accounts of her clients without their knowledge forcing the firm and them into the bankruptcy. Since this broker slipped away, she got an offer to track

This is my first book from this author. It was highly recommended by a friend of mine so I gave it a try. My first impression were that it was too complicated, too much plots and twists,..... and by the time I think I know something a whole new situation develops. I am glad this was the case with this one. Have you ever read the book and thought it was too much for you too handle and at the same time you got the impression that you understood it all???? Well, this one is exactly like that. It re

Reading Claw Back, for me, was a little different than the reading I am used to because it combined several subjects I rarely associate together-finance, mystery and thriller.It works, however, for this book in an extremely realistic and understandable way After the first few chapters, I found myself getting wrapped up in the drama and intrigue. Like everyone else, I have read about the all-common reality of schemes in the financial industry, but never really took the opportunity to see how deva

    I've read all seven Susanna Sloane novels and they're fabulous!

    The sex scenes are great and the plot is a real page turner.
    A stockbroker steals his clients’ money and disappears. Securities attorney Susanna Sloane is hired by the bankruptcy trustee to find the money and wire it back. A Greek billionaire wields his influence to aid her, and becomes her lover. She tires of him but he stops at nothing to keep her...and he holds the power. What happens next is more than electrifying.

    Highly recommended - you must check it out!

    Finally...a novel where the protagonist is a "woman of a certain age."
    Securities lawyer Susanna Sloane, married to but separated from the secretary of the treasury of the United States, is enlisted by a bankruptcy judge to assist in a securities matter regarding claw backs. A broker with a large, prestigious firm had been perpetrating a Ponzi scheme, systematically raiding his clients’ accounts, eventually forcing the firm into bankruptcy. Now the judge was attempting to recover a portion of the phantom profits the clients believed were in their accounts through a system called claw backs. Susanna’s firm also represents many of the broker’s victimized clients. The broker had fled the country, and the bankruptcy judge tells Susanna that she would be handsomely compensated if she could find the missing funds. With the aid of an influential acquaintance, who becomes her lover, Susanna travels to Europe and discovers where most of the funds have been hidden. But confrontations between her husband and lover jeopardize the success of her mission.
