In this financial thriller novel, Michael Hoffman has come a long way from a deprived childhood in Chicago’s South Side. Now he’s a young, successful partner in a major New York law firm, handling some of its clients’ most prestigious M&A deals. With a beautiful wife, and two young daughters who look up to him, he has built the perfect life. But Michael has a secret: one that goes back to his childhood; a secret so dark it could destroy his family and brilliant career. Discovered by the wrong people, it would certainly get him killed. There is only one person who knows about his past, and he is a career criminal who manages a low profile hedge fund, bankrolled by Eastern European mafia money. Michael is safe, but only for as long as he agrees to feed details of his firm’s deals to the fund so it can make millions from insider trading.
This financial thriller, set in the world of corporate deal-making on Wall Street, will surprise you with its twists, and the shocking resolution will have you questioning everything.
“Martin Bodenham has crafted a very entertaining financial thriller in ONCE A KILLER. After enjoying his previous novel, THE GENEVA CONNECTION, I immediately downloaded this book and hoped that it would be as good. I was delighted to find that it was even better. The plot focuses on blackmail, insider trading and money laundering and the characters are all very well developed. Even after reading 90% of the book, I was not sure how it would end which I find to be a rare treat. I was not disappointed in the clever and satisfying conclusion. If someone is looking for a good financial thriller, I would definitely recommend this author.” Top 500 Amazon.com reviewer
