A GRITTY THRILLER SET IN THE WORLD OF POWERFUL NEW YORK LAW FIRMS, FROM NICK SANTORA, WRITER OF THE HIT CRIME DRAMAS THE SOPRANOS, LAW & ORDER, PRISON BREAK and BREAKOUT KINGS AND THE NATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF SLIP & FALL.

Is it really insider trading if you've been an outsider your entire life?

Five men. Five walks of life. Every day they come together at the white shoe law firm Olmstead & Taft. But they're not lawyers. They're "Printers": blue-collar guys consigned to the dark basement of the firm charged with copying, collating and delivering the mountains of paperwork that document millions of dollars of sensitive legal secrets.

Until the five are approached by an ambitious young attorney who teaches them what they have: insider information. Together they make a plan to take the classified documents that pass through their hands every day and use them to get rich. They create a joint account to deposit the spoils. An account with a safeguard--each one only knows one section of the access code.

Which means that for all five conspirators, there's no way out. But as too much money piles up to go unnoticed, the Printers will discover there's one thing even worse than being an outsider: being in too deep. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • FIFTEEN DIGITS is a taut, gripping thrill-ride that appeals to the white collar criminal in all of us. I couldn't put it down. Terence Winter, Creator and Executive Producer of Boardwalk Empire, Executive Producer and Writer of The Sopranos
  • FIFTEEN DIGITS reads like John Grisham and Martin Scorsese's nasty love child. Brimming with unique, indelible characters, it's a cautionary tale of greed, jealousy and vice. Shawn Ryan, Creator and Executive Producer of The Shield
  • Nick Santora's characters will ensnare readers and pull them into the good, bad, and ugly of Robert Principe's life--a gripping thriller. Vince Flynn
  • Santora expertly ratchets up the tension…Almost sinfully seductive. Santora takes us far enough inside the separate worlds of our would-be profiteers that we can’t help but sympathize with them. Readers will be mighty entertained.”

    Washington Post

  • “A propulsive thriller that hurtles along to a brutal and—trust me—very unexpected conclusion. Santora has a TV writer’s sense of pacing, but he also has an eye for character that keeps a reader emotionally engaged in the story. People looking for a Grisham-esque thriller with dash of The Sopranos will find the novel a great summer beach read.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/19/2014

    " Surprised by the plot twist at the end, love when that happens! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melinda | 2/19/2014

    " This book was really good!! One of the only books I've read recently that I couldn't (and didn't want to) put down! It was suspenseful, the characters were not typical, and there was a pretty unexpected turn-of-events at the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jdcarib15 | 2/5/2014

    " I got an ARC a couple weeks ago and finally got a chance to read it. Damn, I really wasn't expecting much but was thoroughly surprised by the story lines and concept. The writing isn't too complex but quite descriptive and funny at times. Perfect book for traveling or at home on the couch. Now to try his other book! His about me says he writes on Breakout Kings... I'm gonna have to check that too, I wonder if they're similar. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynnie | 1/26/2014

    " I have mixed feelings about this book. I liked the writing a lot, I really liked a lot of the characters, however I was frustrated because about a fourth of the way through (if not sooner) it became very obvious where the book was heading. Shortly after that, the author started telling us what was going to happen before it happened such as, "that was the last time they ever spoke" & things like that. I hate when authors do that. How about letting us get to the part when one of them dies before we find out that one of them is going to die? So, it had promise, it was interesting, but it was extremely frustrating & not very surprising in the end since he'd already given it all away. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Meredith | 1/7/2014

    " Maybe I shouldn't give this book such a high rating since it had WAY too many swear words. But, I loved the story and the characters. Even though they were bad guys, I was kind of rooting for them anyway. Some of the book is a little too gritty and yucky. Even so, I really liked it and the end was a great twist. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa Pollack | 1/6/2014

    " I'm in the middle of this book, and I love it! its very compelling! "

    " I love this book! It is a twisty, turny, behind-the-scenes look at a true insider scandal. And there's a great twist at the end. You will enjoy every minute! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 12/2/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brian Williams | 2/28/2013

    " A gritty crime fiction novel about stock market insider trading. It has some brutal and violent scenes. The ending is bitter sweet, and cannot be described as being a happy ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 12/20/2012

    " fast-paced, good balance between charactors and plot--constant foreshadowing is too much "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Steve | 11/11/2012

    " stopped reading on page 84 - needed to get to the action sooner "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Eric Mann | 10/31/2012

    " Good plot ruined by a novel written like a screenplay. The foreshadowing felt made-for-TV. The characters were too stereotypical and the author put little effort into research or simply gave up on believability. Santora should stick to TV shows where his oversights are better suited. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 10/28/2012

    " Really liked this book, but liked the characters so much that I was pissed at the ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alissa | 9/28/2012

    " 2.5 stars. An ok thriller too much foreshadowing. I kept reading to know how it ended. Then I was sad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 5/27/2012

    " good book..first time reading nick santora..would recommend...it read like a john grisham book sortof. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 5/6/2012

    " It was ok. I hated the overuse of foreshadowing. It killed the suspense that I enjoy most in mysteries/thrillers. It was pretty depressing throughout, however I did enjoy the camaraderie built by 4 men from such different walks of life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fran | 4/24/2012

    " Exciting read about the world of high finance. Santora paints a vivid portrait of the main characters and about the dilemma each faces. Hoping this one gets turned into a screenplay and movie. "
