"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."
