“FAST-PACED . . . A TALE OF MARKET MISDEEDS AND MURDER.”
–The New York Times
Augustus McKnight senses his dead-end life is about to change when he makes a shrewd online investment and earns an impressive windfall. But before he can tell his wife about his success, she reveals an adulterous affair and demands a divorce. A day later, she is found brutally murdered– leaving Augustus as the sole beneficiary of her million-dollar life insurance policy. To escape his anguish, Augustus plunges into the world of the full-time day trader–and discovers that he has become both a pawn in a complex game of manipulation . . . and the target of a twisted quest for revenge. Now, he’s not only gambling with his fortune, but with his life.
“MASTERFUL . . . The Day Trader cashes in on the recent market craze, but with much more success than a lot of the dot-com IPOs.”
“A TRUE PAGE-TURNER . . . GOOD ENTERTAINMENT.”
–San Jose Mercury News
“ONE OF HIS BEST [FINANCIAL THRILLERS] BY FAR.”
–The Globe and Mail
