Two brothers, millions of dollars--and the heist of a lifetime

After escaping the corrupt back rooms of Washington, DC, Mike Ford is again playing a dangerous game--this time the stakes are even higher.

Mike's brother is in over his head in a powerful conspiracy to steal a secret worth billions of dollars from the little-known but unbelievably influential trading desk at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. In an effort to help, Mike soon finds himself trapped by the dangerous men in charge--and forced to call on all the skills of his criminal past in order to escape.

In this sharp, pulse-pounding sequel to THE 500, Mike Ford again stars as the cunning and courageous ex-con man with a big heart, and Matthew Quirk confirms that he is one of the most exciting thriller writers at work today.

Opinion

From Library Staff

At first I almost gave up on it. Thought it wasn't my kind of book. Glad I persisted. Recommended by Anne.

"n this fast-paced follow-up to The 500, lawyer Mike Ford finds himself more or less forced into utilising skills from his former life of crime when he agrees to help his brother steal the Federal Reserve's directive guiding U.S. economic policy. Though he'd initially planned to fail, the lives of his increasingly irritated fiancée and his ex-con father depend upon his success. As does his own. The action, increasing suspense, and twisty plot hold plenty of appeal, especially to readers of financial thrillers by the likes of Joseph Finder or Christopher Reich."
