The acclaimed author, whose recent novel of suspense Losing Faith was declared "startling...a well-crafted story" ( Kirkus Reviews ), takes you on a gripping psychological thrill ride in this electrifying tale of a millionaire who will go to deadly lengths to get what he wants.

Jonathan Caine is a true master of the universe--a currency wizard with a trophy wife, a penthouse condo with a view of the Statue of Liberty, and the desire for more--when his world comes crashing down, spiraling him into a relentless fall from grace. Devastated, Jonathan returns to his hometown to care for his ailing father and attend his twenty-fifth high school reunion, where he becomes reacquainted with former prom queen Jacqueline Williams. Back in the day, Jackie didn't even know Jonathan existed. Now she is intrigued by the man he has become. But their budding relationship has problems, not the least of which is Jackie's jealous and abusive husband. Jonathan is determined to learn from his mistakes, but is he capable of complete transformation? Or will a shocking temptation test his desire for redemption beyond anything he could have imagined?

Highly enjoyable read. Puts human faces to a story of financial seduction. Main character is smart guy at the top of his game. We're treated to a peek behind the curtain of how Big Money operates and how little some of those in control think about investing hundreds of millions of $, mostly because they get schmoozed so well. Lots of themes here, including, sometimes the worst things that happen to us can turn out to be the best. And it's never too late to turn your life around and find what's most important. Very nice twist to the ending.

I really enjoyed this one. I was pleased with how the author made things come together in the end. Up until the very end I thought I was going to be disappointed with it's outcome, but I loved it.
