A beautiful young woman has lost t just her inheritance but her parents in the financial collapse, and in her heart she kws something has gone terribly wrong. The law says there is one to blame, legal recourse and one to help uncover the truth she is certain drove them to their deaths. With hope, driven by the power of love and the need for justice for her family, her last desperate chance lies with an unlikely pair of shady characters. He is a bitter ex-Wall Street trader with a passion for short term pleasure who may or may t be trustworthy himself. She is a young redhead with an instinct for the jugular and the temperament of a loaded weapon. Together they must navigate their way through a collapsing maze of secrets in search of the past, and their only reward may be the discovery of an ugliness in humanity that defies reason. Boozy McBain and Boston O'Daniel are a new breed of financial detectives in a world where money is the only thing of value. A world where a lifetime of hopes and dreams can disappear in seconds with the flash of an electronic message. Where vast sums of wealth pass through the fingers of anymous magicians with their own set of rules and an unscrupulous sleight of hand that dazzles the uninitiated and makes a virtue of guile. A place where what is legal often bears little relation to what is right. And where sometimes the cost of kwing the truth must be paid by the soul.
