Claw Back based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
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.
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.
