From the author of the extraordinary Edgar-nominated debut novel Black Fridays, a sensational story of murder and financial corruption - and one man's continued search for redemption.
William von Becker ran one of the largest privately held investment banks in North America, until the bottom fell out, and the whole edifice was demonstrated to be a fraud.
After von Becker dies in prison, financial investigator Jason Stafford is hired by his family. There is still a lot of missing money out there, he's told, and they want Stafford to find it before the Feds do - and certain other parties, some of whom are nowhere near as scrupulous in their methods. Bad things start happening to the people Stafford talks to. Soon bad things are happening to him as well.
Making it worse, his treacherous ex-wife has come to town, ostensibly to visit their young son. Stafford suspects there's more to it than that, but even he has no idea how much that visit is about to change all their lives - and send him off to the next chapter of his life.

Great character that gets you going about bonds
I think this is a very unusual setting that still works. Financial stuff is normally as boring as watching paint dry but the author explains it all so simply that everyone gets it and finds it amazingly interesting.
I like the boy best. It is an unusual family setting.
The speaker is very good. He manages to speak in distinctly different voices without sounding silly i.e.when he is talking as a woman.
This book has to be savoured but it is hard as you want to rush on.
It is not necessary to have read the first book but it is better because otherwise you might not want to listen to the first book.
