Investment banker Conner Ashby is doing all right for himself—until he receives a wayward e-mail ... and is plunged into a terrifying nightmare. It’s a communication not meant for Conner’s eyes, about a company engaged in corporate fraud on a massive scale. With millions of dollars at stake and hell to pay if the truth comes out, whoever clicked the send button by mistake isn’t about to take any chances. Following a trail of misdeeds that stretches nationwide, Conner slowly uncovers a shocking agenda. Surviving will mean struggling to expose the plot as relentlessly as his shadowy enemies seek to conceal it—and fighting for his life as ruthlessly as those determined to end it.

    " I'm a finance wonk, so I had to give this one a shot. Some of the commentary by the characters seems overly populist to me, but the core of the financial crime is interesting. I wish the female characters had more, well, character - Frey's taken the Madonna/Magdalene concept a bit literally here. "
