Having it all will never be enough for George Tazoli, an ambitious dealer on the trading floor of a prominent California bank. He is hand-picked for a special assignment to sell off bad loans, but not because he is dating the daughter of the bank's president, rather for his skill at working the market. The promotion sends him to New York, putting a strain on his relationship, but then a scandalous discovery lures him into the gamble of a lifetime. George must gauge the risks -- his direct superior is the bank's president and his potential father-in-law, who is married to an heiress worth billions, all the more reason for George to vow his fidelity. Back at the bank's headquarters, the president and his father, the chairman and grandfather of George's L.A. girlfriend, are embroiled in a long-standing feud with another family of stockholders competing for control of the bank. The boardroom tension and ultimate showdown keeps everyone busy while George makes difficult choices that will teach him a lesson learned the hard way -- even wealth has a price.

Want to get a picture of what big banking, bad loans, and people wanting to build a career are doing behind the scenes? Read Stephen's latest book. It is a fun book to read and the characters are so well drawn that they linger in your mind and you wonder if you have known people like them but just didn't know it at the time. Having been in the real estate business when it crashed four times during my career, I suspected some of this stuff, but boy, Stephen has the inside scoop and it rings as true as the dinner bell. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
