Who Killed Matthew B. Richardson III?

Banksters or Islamic Terrorists?

"Cohen's style is not unlike that found in novels by authors such as Dan Brown, or Tom Clancy, or even the late Michael Crichton." Gary Sorkin for Pacific Book Review.

The head of one of the largest investment banking and securities firms in the United States has been assassinated on Times Square in the middle of New York City's annual celebration of Halloween, the Festival of the Dead. Louis Martelli, NYPD, is one of the first detectives on the scene. The case rapidly spirals downward into a maelstrom of death and intrigue linked both to the financial meltdown of 2008 and international terrorism. Who is behind the murders, and why is the FBI attempting to shut down Martelli's investigation before it even can get started? Martelli eventually learns the answers to these and other questions, but not before discovering how two Wall Street financial institutions have been complicit in funding Islamic terrorism.
