Abe Cushman, the evil genius behind a $60 billion Ponzi scheme, has killed himself and taken his secrets to the grave.

For Patrick Lloyd, a young Wall Street advisor at the world’s largest Swiss bank, Cushman’s fall has unexpected—and deadly—repercussions. Lloyd’s girlfriend, Lilly, is directly tied to billions of dollars in losses suffered by Cushman’s most dangerous victims, a group of powerful investors whose identities and dirty finances are well hidden. What Lilly knows can get her and Patrick killed, and now the pair are in a run for their lives that leads to the heart of a clandestine operation—and to a cabal of powerful officials determined to keep their agenda hidden from the public. With nowhere to turn and no one to trust, Patrick and Lilly must uncover the truth before they become collateral damage.

A gripping thriller ripped from the headlines, Need You Now brilliantly imagines a terrifying, all-too-possible conspiracy that spreads from Wall Street deep into the halls of government.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Samantha | 2/15/2014

    " This is a financial thriller and I wasn't sure about it as I picked it up. It is an Andie Henning book but it is a standalone and you don't have to read any of James Gripppando's other books. I followed some of the Bernie Madoff saga but not very closely. I afraid wouldn't be able to keep up. However, I should have known that James Grippando would write about it in a way that would be fascinating and understandable. It was fairly quick paced. It dragged a little in the middle as the characters were trying to find their way. Some of their choices weren't understandable and were just there to help a big plot twist. I didn't find the characters to be memorable and Andie Henning doesn't play a huge part in it. I definitely think that Mr. Grippando needs to stick with Jack Swytecek as his main character. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a financial thriller or a reader of the series. "
