A powerful new novel by the author of the New York Times business bestseller The Takeover. Alerted to irregularities in the buying patterns of a risky new inventment fund, Wall Street investment banker Mace McLain uses all his cunning and razor-shapr instincts to uncover a string of bizarre connections that hint at a huge conspiracy--a plot with roots in Washington politics and international terrorism.

This was the first book by Frey that I've read, but it won't be the last. This book was spellbinding thru out. Glad I found this writer. He does for finance what Grisham does for law!!
Stephen Frey must have been in a big hurry to finish this one. Likewise, his publisher must have needed it fast. That's the only plausible reason something so unpolished could have gone to press. I like Frey's premise, but his character development, plot structure, and writing style are amateurish at best. I challenge anyone to track the point of view in this book! In addition, Frey manages to offend most female readers with supposedly high-powered women characters who are obsessed with pleasing a man. And the ones over age 35 are terminally depressed about their fading looks. Please! Frey makes Grisham look like a literary genius.
Takeover was his first book I read, this one is even better. Twists and turns, quick fun reading
