Need You Now by James Grippando

I hadn't heard of James Grippando until I read a review of Need You Now on Tif Talks Books. You can read her review here. Mr.  Grippando takes us into the world of Wall Street, Ponzi schemes, the FBI and witness protection. There were many twists and turns. I'll definitely be looking out for more of his books. The only part I didn't particularly like is a torture scene which I skipped over. Other than that it was a riveting book and one I had trouble putting down.

Thanks Tif for the book which I won in a giveaway.

From the cover:
Ave Cushman, the evil genius behind a sixty-billion-dollar Ponzi scheme has killed himself and taken his secrets to the grave. For Patrick Lloyd, a young Wall Street adviser at the world's largest Swiss bank, Cushman's fall has unexpected and deadly repercussions. Patrick's girlfriend, Lilly, is directly tied to billions of dollars in losses suffered by Cushman's most dangerous "victims" a group of powerful investors whose identities and dirty finances are shrouded in secrecy. What Lilly knows can get her and Patrick killed . . .
