The New York Times bestselling author of Numbered Account and the Rules of Deception series returns to the treacherous world of Wall Street. The Prince of Risk is a high-octane financial thriller set at the crossroads of high finance and international terrorism.

Robert "Bobby" Astor is a rising New York hedge fund manager on the cusp of making his biggest, most daring killing yet. But everything changes when his father, the chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, is killed in a brazen, mystifying attack on the south lawn of the White House while en route to deliver a terrifying secret to the President of the United States.

In the wake of the attacks, Astor sees the business he built crumble around him and finds himself on the brink of ruin. A cryptic clue leads him deeper into the web of lies surrounding his father's murder, and Astor stumbles onto a sophisticated foreign conspiracy that threatens to wipe out not only Astor's own fund but to destroy the entire foundationof the financial system of the United States.

    An absolutely must read

    I have read all of Chris Reich's books and by
    far this has to be his best. A great blend of action,
    suspense and intrigue. The idea of another
    Government controlling our economy coupled
    with the greed of some high ranking government
    officials of our own,wow! Add to that a terrorist
    plot and attack blended in and brought together
    another, wow!

    I absolutely love Reich's books, so was very happy to finally get to read a new one of his. I was not disappointed. I could not put it down. It was a true page turner. The mix between the financial world in the book and criminal world are great. You always wondered when the two would collide. I recommend to anyone who wants a great book to read as you don't have to have a financial understanding to follow along the book.

    This book is as good as any A list writer out there. The book is very timely as it describes nation states using the Internet to spy and manipulate computers at will. The frightening thing about this is that the mechanisms Reich reveals as the book moves along are very, very plausible. You don't find out just how devious it all is until the protagonist finds out about it all later on in the book. Very well researched, it also accurately depicts how hedge funds run, giving the reader an understandable peek into the inner workings of high finance Wall Street. Finally, it is a true page turner, hard to put down. Very well written.

    The Prince of Risk by Christopher Reich

    I wholeheartedly recommend this book. Its main plot is the attempted Chinese takeover and destruction of America through computers. While the Wall Street-based events are realistic and fascinating, financial experience is not a prerequisite to enjoying this “roller coast of a ride” story. Woven around the main storyline of the evil-intended Chinese are the risk taker’s relationships: his Wall Street tycoon dad, his ex-wife FBI terrorism specialist, his daughter, and his business associates including his Gordon Gekko-like dealings with co-workers, clients, and the press. This is a very thrilling read with old world mobster murder of all who stand in the way of the Chinese.

    Not of a quality of "Numbered Account"

    Very loosely plotted, and casually written. Numerous improbable sequences of events. The characters are cardboard.
