Executives are dying in mysterious circumstances after unusual dealings in their companies shares.
Young Todd Hansen’s an audit manager who hates accounting and loves gambling on racehorses. He’s on a hot winning win streak, taking the illegal bookies for a fortune, and is about to resign his job when things go awry. In the hole for more than half a million, he’s given a way to pay his debt. All he has to do is provide some confidential financial information about his corporate clients.
Todd’s caught and sentenced to nine years in Castlebrough, New York’s toughest prison. Murderer, mob boss, and chess fanatic, Frank Arturo, runs the prison and Todd catches a lucky break. He’s a champion chess player and is befriended by Arturo.
When Todd’s released on shaky grounds of appeal, the FBI promise they’ll have his sentence remitted if he helps them trap those who blackmailed him. He’s scared, doesn’t want to do it, and knows one slip up will see him dead but what choice does he have?
The story is nicely developed and well written from beginning to the satisfying ending.Bichon Mom TOP 500 REVIEWER
