Someone is killing off Wall Street's shadiest financiers, and only Silas Cade can get to the bottom of it
With breakneck pacing, nonstop action, and cutting-edge details of today’s financial intelligence technology, Clawback offers a thrill-a-minute narrative set in the world of Too Big to Fail. Silas Cade, a black-ops vet and gray-zone contractor, is no stranger to gunslinging or shady finance. After coming home from America’s wars abroad, he becomes an “accountant”—the go-to for Wall Street financiers who need jobs done quickly, quietly, and by any means necessary. Hired by a major player to visit a tanking hedge fund manager and extract ten million dollars in clawback—the mandatory return of compensation paid on a deal that goes bad—Silas instead discovers that someone is killing off bankers all over New York.
Mike Cooper is the pen name for a former financial executive. Winner of a Shamus Award for his short fiction, he was also nominated for an International Writers Award for a previous novel, published under another name. He lives in Boston.
What People are Saying About This
"Clawback is smart and savvy, and paced like a bull market rally! Silas Cade is part Jack Reacher, part Seal Team Six in the Madoffian canyons of power and greed."
“Better than a bank with wheels, Clawback reads like a rollercoaster on a financial graph! Mike Cooper’s debut novel has a narrative that’s breezy and light, kind of like the fire that backdrafts under a door before it blows off the hinges.”
"Sharp, invigorating and remarkably assured, Mike Cooper's financial thriller Clawback has done the unthinkable: it's made Oliver Stone's Wall Street look downright naïve.”
"Mike Cooper’s Clawback is fantastic. If Tom Wolfe could channel Robert Ludlum, he would have written this novel. Think Bonfire of the Vanities meets The Bourne Identity and then kick it way, way up. Action, suspense, and tons of insider information. This is my kind of thriller and I can't wait for the next one. If you like Nelson DeMille, you will love Mike Cooper."
“Clawback is a great guilty pleasure. It has vivid but convincing action, a sympathetic protagonist with a specialty we haven't seen before, and plentiful antagonists we all have reason to despise. Buy it.”
