Martin David, an eager but inexperienced financial analyst, is the newest member of the investment team at Skeiron Capital Partners in London. His boss is an avowed financial genius, but he's also overbearing and intense. Despite his erratic behavior, Martin can't help being drawn to him both professionally and personally.
Too bad his boss doesn't seem to feel the same. In a firm where pedigree and connections mean far more than Martin's newly minted business degree, Martin feels desperately inadequate - at least until he meets the enigmatic investment manager Alec Berger, who promises to help Martin establish himself in the financial community. Martin is so charmed by Alec's sophistication and wit that he gives him data that should have stayed confidential.
Then the financial crisis hits. Banks burn, companies teeter on the brink, and Skeiron's survival is at stake. Martin is pushed into the middle of the fight for Skeiron - against both the tanking economy and a ruthless enemy who's stepped out of the shadows to collect the spoils.

The audio book is great!
I have conflicting emotions about this book. I LOVE the narrating. It was just excellent.
The story itself was VERY interesting, and I enjoyed the writing A LOT.
My personal issue was...a financial WORLD. And it was just a lot of it HERE.
On the one hand I appreciate the topic - who else if not Aleks, who KNOWS the topic PRETTY WELL (I just know it because I'm a GR friend of the author, who regularly read Voinov's blogs, and a big admire of Aleks), on the other hand, I and FINANCES...we just don't match together.
It is why I HAVE (SORRY!!!) to give it ONLY 4 stars.
I wish to be at least a NATURAL BORN ACCOUNTANT, better a BANKER, to have MUCH MORE fun. I'm just someone who hates EVERYTHING that has to do with taxes, stocks and banks.
I am pretty sure that my hubby would have had MUCH MORE FUN with this book (if he would be a reader of gay fiction), because he is a responsible person for our tax declaration...
Aside from my personal financial problems:
VERY ACTUAL TOPIC, from an INSIDER-author.
LONDON (my weak spot, I love it!!!)
GREAT sex scenes.
THE NARRATOR ( I mentioned it already, didn't I?!)
VERY actual topic.
Men in suits...(mmmmm)
