Just before things went haywire, Nick Scheavers’s life was going great. He expected to make a mint on the high tech company he was helping to go public, and he had become lucky in love.
Everything was wonderful until a venture capitalist did some high-speed bouncing on the sidewalk before posing for the crime scene photographs. How quickly the high and mighty have fallen, or in this case, were launched.
On news of the death, the stock price of the fledgling company fell fast, too. Stock Market analysts say that stocks, like a dead cat, will bounce if they are thrown at the ground hard enough. Hopefully the stock would quit falling, bounce, and then come to life again. On the other hand, the stock could also join the venture capitalist for the long fall to oblivion.
Nick now needed to save the company, himself, and if possible, his love life, but not necessarily in that order. Life would be a lot easier if he weren’t a suspect. This time, Nick needs more than a trick to avoid becoming a spot on the pavement.
