Michael Sears spent over twenty years on Wall Street, rising to become a managing director at Paine Webber and Jeffries & Co., before leaving the business in 2005. He lives in Sea Cliff, New York, where he is at work on a second book featuring Jason Stafford and his son.
An investment firm asks former Wall Street hotshot Jason Stafford to look into possible problems left by a junior trader who died recently in an accident. What he discovers are the kinds of problems that can get you killed. But Stafford has another quest as well: to reclaim his five-year-old son, “the Kid,” from his unstable ex-wife. When the two threads of his life come together, the results are unforgettable.
