Money-melodrama in which characters join conspiracies the way they once pledged fraternities.

It was another cloudless afternoon in Midtown Manhattan. He stepped to the curb and raised his hand k of the taxi. And they were off, squealing away from the sidewalk. Gavin had gone out to East Hampton last night, leaving a few minutes after Conner returned to the apartment from his afternoon with Amy in Central Park. He’d asked Conner to come with him to the mansion, apparently no longer angry about Conner taking Monday off. But that was Gavin.

That was not the case with his latest offering. Maybe be I have missed something during the past few years.

Stephen Frey is a best-selling author who writes novels set in the financial world. He is a managing director at a private equity firm, and lives in Florida. He previously worked in mergers and acquisitions at JP Morgan and as a vice president of corporate finance at an international bank headquartered in Manhattan. Until the publication of The Chairman, introducing the character of Christian Gillette, Frey's books were all standalone stories.

Free books to read or listen online in a convenient form, a large collection, the best authors and series. For decades, the top-secret Red Cell Seven unit has operated beyond the reach of the law-defending the United States by any means necessary, with absolute impunity. But the tables have turned, and the untouchable anti-terror squad is under attack.

Staying true to the formula that has made his financial thrillers successful, Frey throws his financial-wizard hero into a situation in which he can trust no one and forces him to risk his life while uncovering a bizarre web of corruption and deceit. There are no real surprises here, but Frey does what he does skillfully, and he's found a large and receptive audience.

His novels of big money and murder in the world of finance have earned New York Times bestselling author Stephen Frey a richly deserved reputation as a master of suspense who always delivers a high yield. Now he raises the stakes, and the risk factor, in a new thriller that pits a young Wall Street player against corporate conspiracy and White House intrigue—in a dangerous game of double crosses, dirty tricks, and deadly consequences.An investment banker in the maverick firm Phenix Capital, Conner Ashby is doing all right for himself. At twenty-seven, he’s practically the right-hand man of the company’s founder—a wealthy old pro looking to make a big comeback on The Street while grooming Conner for a place at the top. Between his career and his gorgeous girlfriend, it’s a good life, with every indication of getting even better—until a wayward E-mail crosses Conner’s computer, and plunges his near-perfect world into a terrifying downward spiral.“The ‘operation’ is way out of hand. If we don’t do something, it’s going to detonate.” It’s a communication not meant for Conner’s eyes, between people he doesn’t know, about a company he’s never heard of—a company that’s engaged in corporate fraud on a massive scale. With no way to trace the E-mail, it’s impossible for Conner to act on the volatile discovery. But with millions of dollars at stake, high-powered careers in the balance, and hell to pay if the truth comes out, whoever clicked the “send” button by mistake isn’t about to take any chances. And for Conner, the evening that began in the arms of a beautiful woman ends in a harrowing race for his life.As he follows a twisting trail of misdeeds and misinformation that stretches nationwide, Conner slowly uncovers a shocking plot as undeniably real as the gunshot wound in his arm. Now, surviving will mean struggling to expose the truth as relentlessly as his shadowy enemies seek to conceal it— and fighting for his life as ruthlessly as those determined to end it.At every unexpected turn, Shadow Account deftly reveals Stephen Frey’s many and considerable gifts: his genius for plotting, his mastery of suspense, and his unmatched insight into the dark territory where finance meets felony, money meets mortality, and profit and loss are matters of life and death.


I bought this because I told a friend about a great new international thriller I loved with an investment banker as one of the lead characters. She told me if I liked that I'd eat this up. I'm a financial professional, I'm home sick and read this in one day, and let me tell you, if I wasn't sick before I'd be now. In the first place, the setting and characterizations in the financial sector are not real or believable. Next, the story has events that are so hard to swallow (the guy's girlfriend is murdered in the first scenes, and he's romancing somebody else within a few chapters--offensive to me as a woman--this after uncovering major fraud involving his firm, then chasing the assassin around NYC, all within an hour) that you can't let yourself get drawn into the story. Finally (and I could keep going on, but I won't), the ending was not at all satisfying after all the convoluted sub-plots going on, and I didn't feel everything was satisfactorily resolved. Please don't bother with this one. On a sick day (or any day), if you want a well-spun, believable tale of a financial type caught up in events beyond his control, then has to rise to the occasion, read Trojan Horse. Or try an old classic like The Day Of The Jackal (I just read it).
Nothing is really as it appears, if you think you know what's going on your dead. The story line is Shockingly plausible. A great story about the top 1%…
great experience i have order five books since discovering FREY. THANK YOU AMAZON
Reads well, interesting plot. I like his writing style, very engaging. Eventhough some things remained unresolved.
couldn't put it down
Stephen Frey keeps you on your toes throughout, always changing direction when you think you have it figured out.
Light out of Fildon
The story line was captivating and was well written. It had a complex web of characters who were all tied together.
I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a good mystery.
I intended five stars but could highlight only three.
Shadow Account is an intriging story with many trists and turns leading to an intereting insight into shares and the big boys wealth achievements
