Publisher's Summary

A tough, topical financial thriller that exposes the dark underbelly of Wall Street.

After a stint in the Middle East, black ops vet Silas Cade becomes an "accountant" - the go-to for financiers who need things done quickly, quietly, and by any means necessary. Silas is hired by a major player to pay a visit to a hedge-fund manager to demand clawback: the mandatory return of compensation paid on a deal that goes bad. But before Cade can tell his client that he got his $10 million back, the guy turns up dead.

And he's not the first. Someone's killing investment bankers whose funds have gone south. Silas's scrubbed identity, and his insider's perspective, makes him the ideal shadow man to track down whoever's murdering some of the most hated managers on Wall Street. With the aid of a beautiful financial blogger looking to break her first big story, Silas tracks a violent security crew who may be the key to the executions. But as paranoia and panic spread, he begins to wonder: is the threat coming from inside the game-or out?

With breakneck pacing, nonstop action, and the cutting-edge details of today's financial intelligence technology, Clawback hurtles to its final twist, a gripping contemporary tale of shady finance, venal corruption, and greed run rampant.

    Story
    "Don't bail them out, take them out!"

    Mike Cooper's CLAWBACK is a smart, fast-paced thriller starring Silas Cade, a different kind of thriller hero. Cade has the appropriate background -- murky military stuff of the black ops variety -- and he demonstrates his fast thinking and fighting ability throughout the book; but he's also a Wall Street accounting with great brains and a seemingly endless supply of ever-ringing throwaway cell phones. But this is no run-of-the-mill ex-military, genius accountant. Cade's a high-stakes leg breaker, setting stuff straight not over 200 dollar shylock deals but multi-million dollar scams. In CLAWBACK, he's contracted to find out who's knocking off investment bankers -- and he enters the dangerous, twisting world of Mike Cooper's intelligent plot.

    It's not just the plot that's smart. Cooper's writing is sharp yet smooth, and his characters, Cade and the supporting cast alike, are well-developed and nicely orchestrated, bringing every page of the book to life. The humor's smart, too, providing a nice counter-balance for the action scenes, which set the story afire.

    These action scenes are made for the big screen. The fighting scenes, the chase scenes, and especially a central scene that combines both of these elements -- and a helicopter! -- scream "blockbuster movie!" I hope I'm right. That's a movie I'd love to see.

    The narration of this audiobook is also dead on the money. The narrator's voice is a great match for Cade in particular, and he does a good job, moving across the various types of scenes, performing well through straight narration, dialogue, and action alike.

    All in all, I'd highly recommend CLAWBACK to thriller and mystery fans, and most pointedly to anyone looking for a fresh take on thrillers and thriller heroes.
