Suppose There Is Nothing
A Wall Street MysteryBook - 2017
"Stockbroker John McCarthy witnesses a former hedge fund manager plunge to her death from a financial district hotel. Her ex-fiancé, a prominent Harvard professor, tells the media she was despondent over her fund's failure. But the dead woman has left evidence with McCarthy that the world's financial markets are in a more precarious state than Wall Street dares admit. For McCarthy, who is on his third marriage, skepticism comes easily. His actress wife remains friends with her last lover, a high-powered lawyer whose clients include just the sort of bankers who might view murder as a cost of doing business. Nor does he find any comfort as the Securities and Exchange Commission investigates: the same SEC that let a well-connected crook named Bernie Madoff operate for twenty years. As McCarthy tracks the Harvard professor to a predatory hedge fund, financial markets shudder lower, just as though there's nothing under them but dying public trust"--Amazon.com.
