“We facilitate financial transactions for a fee. That is what we call the Vig.”

The most corrupt decade in Wall Street history was a good time to steal a little bit of money from a lot of people.

Meet Frank McGinley. He has a penchant for vodka and a head for numbers. As an equity options specialist on the American Stock Exchange, he discovers a scam which diverts small amounts from thousands of trading accounts into the pockets of a con man. Forty grand in an envelope is passed to him across the table. It may be enough to make Frank look the other way.

Before he decides to cash the check or tear it up, he’s caught up in a federal investigation of a Ponzi schemer with a violent flair.

Frank is soon pitted against a seductive assassin and a corrupt federal agent who both want him dead.

To survive Frank will have to think like the killers. Take it to them and risk a bullet to the head, since in the dark corners downtown, deals are made with a threat and broken with a gun.

John NuckelJOHN NUCKEL has worked in the financial industry for over thirty years. In that time he has spent many hours on the barstools of Wall Street and run into enough characters to fill a dozen books. John ran like hell down Broadway when the World Trade Center came down, he has thrown punches on the trading floor and sat behind Spike Lee at the Garden. As a personal financial advisor, he now spends most of his time in the boardroom. This experience has taught him that there isn't much difference between bookies and bankers. A fact that the world has discovered recently but John had known for years. The only difference is whether the con artist is wearing Armani and carrying a briefcase or is wearing a track suit as he sticks a gun in your face.
