“Black Fridays” is a financial thriller ala "The Firm". The novel is an impressive debut by Michael Sears, who spent over twenty years on Wall Street, rising to managing director at Paine Webber and Jeffries & Co., before leaving the business in 2005.
Jason Stafford was a hot shot on Wall Street until he did some creative record keeping and was sent to prison. Now, Jason is trying to put his life back together, with his autistic son, after his release from prison. He takes a consulting position with another Wall Street firm and is enmeshed in a high stakes murder mystery. Well written, with good character development. Appropriate for adults.
