In the fast-moving world of finance, top producers have to think three steps ahead and make snap decisions. In their blurred vision of reality, scams can be disguised as success and plotting mistaken for killer instincts. But this book isn't about stocks and bonds - it's about people. About Grove O'Rourke, top producer at Sachs, Kidder and Carnegie, and his best friend, Charlie, whose spectacular murder is carried out in front of hundreds of horrified party-goers
