Two brothers, millions of dollars—and the heist of a lifetime

After escaping the corrupt back rooms of Washington, DC, Mike Ford is again playing a dangerous game—this time the stakes are even higher.

Mike’s brother is in over his head in a powerful conspiracy to steal a secret worth billions of dollars from the little-known but unbelievably influential trading desk at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. In an effort to help, Mike soon finds himself trapped by the dangerous men in charge—and forced to call on all the skills of his criminal past in order to escape.

In this sharp, pulse-pounding sequel to The 500, Mike Ford again stars as the cunning and courageous ex-con man with a big heart, and Matthew Quirk confirms that he is one of the most exciting thriller writers at work today.

    Associated Press

  • “This ripping yarn springs and snaps along like a row of wolf traps.”

    Newsday

  • “Solidly researched, with elements of a technothriller, this is a nonstop, heart-pounding ride in which moral blacks and whites turn gray in ‘the efficient alignment of power and interests’ that is big-time politics. Quirk has another high-powered hit on his hands.”
