Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 038073284X, Mass Market Paperback)Young Manhattan attorney Rick Hansen has ascended to the top of the financial ladder by landing himself a plum position at the blue-chip-global investment firm of Wolcott, Fulbright & Company. Here on "the Street," he is in close proximity to the people who manipulate the power that spins the globe: money. But something is very wrong. His predecessor's shocking suicide begins to look suspiciously like murder. And the deeper Hansen digs, the more evidence he uncovers of a devastating international conspiracy to engineer the biggest market crash since 1929 and reap billions in profits from global apocalypse. With the clock ticking down to the zero hour, Rick Hansen discovers he's the only one who can stop a nightmarish Black Friday from dawning-but only if he is willing to put his own life on the line.
The Velocity of Money is a riveting, sophisticated, blisteringly authentic thriller that provides an insider's glimpse into the vast and intricate workings of the Wall Street financial machine; a shocking cautionary tale for an age of electronic trading and speculative frenzies, when personal fortunes can be made in a minuteand the world economy can be destroyed in an instant.
