Overview

A tough, topical financial thriller that exposes the dark underbelly of Wall Street.

After a stint in the Middle East, black ops vet Silas Cade becomes an "accountant"-the go-to for financiers who need things done quickly, quietly, and by any means necessary. Silas is hired by a major player to pay a visit to a hedge fund manager to demand clawback: the mandatory return of compensation paid on a deal that goes bad. But before Cade can tell his client that he got his ten million back, the guy turns up dead.

And he's not the first. Someone's killing investment bankers whose funds have gone south. Silas's scrubbed identity, and his insider's perspective, makes him the ideal shadow man to track down whoever's murdering some of the most hated managers on Wall Street. With the aid of a beautiful financial blogger looking to break her first big story, Silas tracks a violent security crew who may be the key to the executions. But as paranoia and panic spread, he begins to wonder: is the threat coming from inside the game-or out?

With breakneck pacing, nonstop action, and cutting edge details of today's financial intelligence technology, Clawback hurtles to its final twist, a gripping contemporary tale of shady finance, venal corruption, and greed run rampant.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In Cooper’s engaging if flawed financial thriller, Silas Cade, a former black ops soldier now working as a consultant, seeks “clawback” (“the mandatory return of compensation paid on a deal that later goes bad”) from shady investment managers, initially extracting million on behalf of Tom Marlett, a hedge fund manager. After Marlett is murdered, another Wall Street tycoon, Quint Ganderson, hires Cade to look into the suspicious deaths of several money-losing money managers. A financial blogger, Clara Dawson, becomes enmeshed in the case, which turns into a frenetic search for the people and the motive behind the murders. A disgruntled investor seeking revenge? A fringe group wanting to destroy Wall Street? Or another financial player hungry for profit? The pseudonymous Cooper (“a former financial executive” who’s written a thriller under another name) clearly knows the investment world, but it’s hard to sympathize with the victims and even harder to stay engaged when the motive and the suspects are so opaque. Agent: Heide Lange, Sanford J. Greenburger Associates. (Mar.)
Kirkus Reviews
Silas Cade can field strip a Browning .50-caliber machine gun, and he can parachute from an airplane, but he's done with Iraq and military life and has no interest in hired-gun Blackwater. Instead, Cade reconnoiters Wall Street and uses covert tactics to recover missing millions. In Cooper's debut thriller, ex-special ops Cade has earned his CPA, decided not to bean-count and decided to apply his skill set to become a one-man lost-funds recovery operation. The story begins with a hiccup in Cade's business. Client Thomas Marlett is killed by a sniper, a murder happening at the same time Cade "claws back" Marlett's $10 million from an about-to-be-arrested fraud. In the Wall Street milieu where traders "have long ago left behind law, morality and the social compact," Cade doesn't lack clients. His next, Quint Ganderson, investment-fund managing partner, informs Cade that Marlett's fund was down 78 percent and two other CEOs of poorly performing funds are also recently dead. As Cade searches for the assassin, Clara Dawson inserts herself into his investigation. She's a financial blogger-journalist whose legwork has uncovered the fact Cade's no boring bookkeeper. By mid-tale, Cade's gone hand-to-hand more than once, dodged a shoot-out and arm-wrestled a helicopter before jumping into the Hudson River to save himself. Cooper's characters will probably populate sequels, not only Cade and Clara, but also Johnny, boyhood friend and high-velocity trader; Zeke, a hard-drinking, laconic former special-ops buddy; and Rondo, Clara's roommate and a gay martial arts expert. There's much snappy, half-cynical repartee reminiscent of 1930s Hollywood cinema, including snarks about the necessity of gun control, and a firefight aboard a mega-yacht followed by a jet ski-Zodiac water pursuit. Cooper sets the action in New York City, a locale he has down pat, from neighborhood diners to the only place it's legal to live on your boat. Arm a Hollywood hero with a Beretta and disposable cell, point him at a Gordon Gekko–type, and this book's big screen ready.
