In the world of high finance, it's all about risk and return. With
big risks come big rewards... and even bigger dangers. And no one
knows this better than Stephen Frey. From the "New York Times"
bestselling author of "Trust Fund" and "The Day Trader" comes an
electrifying new thriller of money, mayhem, and murder. Angela Day
has survived a rough past-from a hard-scrabble childhood scarred by
the tragic deaths of her father and best friend, to losing custody
of her only child to her adulterous ex-husband and his powerful
family. But despite it all, at thirty-one, she's carved out a good
career with Sumter Bank one of Richmond, Virginia's most venerable
institutions. And now, summoned under mysterious circumstances to
meet one of the world's richest entrepreneurs, it looks as if
Angela may be on the threshold of a brighter future. ""If you help
me, I'll help you."" This is Jake Lawrence's offer to Angela. A
stock-holder in Sumter Bank, the reclusive multibillionaire is
planning a takeover of a hot, new company-and he wants Angela to
apply her considerable skills and charms to make sure it all goes
smoothly... and secretly. In exchange, Lawrence promises to use his
formidable influence to permanently reunite Angela with her son.
For Angela, it's the one reward for which she would risk
everything. And accepting Jake Lawrence's deal will mean doing just
that, as his mind-boggling wealth and power come with the ultimate
price tag: enemies everywhere have marked him for death. And anyone
close to him is fair game. Now, as Angela prepares to broker the
deal of her career, she's stalked by foes on every front. Then,
after stumbling on evidence of an insidious conspiracy within
herown company, she becomes a target for termination. Armed with
the most volatile kind of inside information, Angela has the power
to bring the dirtiest players down from the highest places. But
they have the power to strike first-at the one thing most precious
to Angela. "Silent Partner" reaffirms Stephen Frey's reputation as
a master of page-turning suspense in the world of big-money movers
and shakers-where everyone has a price, and there's more than one
way to make a killing. "Harrowing... Frey enlivens finance the way
Patricia Cornwell does forensic science and the way Dan Brown ("The
Da Vinci Code") does medieval studies." "FORBES" "Fast-moving,
zestful, stirring... Full of twists and surprises... Compelling
characters." "LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK REVIEW" "Danger and deception
dominate... A worthy counterpart to Frey's previous bestselling
novels." "NEW YORK DAILY NEWS" "Springs plenty of surprises... In
"Silent Partner," the villains are seldom what they seem--nor are
the heroes." "ORLANDO SENTINEL" "Plenty of sexual intrigue,
violence, and villainy ... Frey is] to be lauded for spotlighting
the prickly issue of corporate racism. "Silent Partner" is a solid
piece of work that hits all its marks right on cue." "BOOKSTREET
USA" "A briskly written, suspense-filled novel that Grisham-lovers
are bound to enjoy." &
