Michael Hoffman has come a long way from his 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 would 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.
