down. Suddenly embroiled in a grand jury investigation of
Mob-related activities on Wall Street, and threatened by some
very serious men, he is thrust into witness protection with his

save his son, his firm, his pregnant girlfriend—and himself.

About the Author

Michael SearsMichael Sears was sixty-one when his first novel, Black Fridays, was published. After nine years as a professional actor, he got an MBA from Columbia University and spent more than twenty years on Wall Street, rising to become the managing director in the bond trade and underwriting divisions of Paine Webber and, later, Jefferies & Co., before heeding his father’s advice: “When it stops being fun, get out.” He did so in 2005, and returned to what had always given him the greatest joy—writing—studying at NYU and the New School.

The temptations that drag down some of his characters are well known to him, as are the insider-trading perils that form the core of the new novel. The autism is known to him, too, from his extended family, and he has seen the struggles and the rewards.

Sears holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Maryland, and he lives in Sea Cliff, New York, with his wife, artist Barbara Segal. They have two sons.

  1. My interest was piqued when I say the fact the character has a child with Autism. I also am a parent of a child with Autism. He is 27 years old and is considered a higher functioning individual. I have learned quite a bit from him and hope the author uses the son’s challenge in a positive way.


  2. I’m very interested in reading mysteries and in particular this one with so much at stake for the main character. And as I don’t know much about autism, this also appeals to me to learn more.


  3. Thanks for this fascinating feature and giveaway. The author is extremely talented and his novels are gripping and emotional. I would love to read this new release which sounds memorable. Thanks.


  4. This mystery interests me greatly since the author has written a compelling and captivating book and the series sounds unforgettable and unique.


  5. Another book out with emphasis on Wall Street and financial crisis. This may be a great time for books on this subject, although not a good time for us who are losing in the stock market. Interesting material here.


  6. Hi Michael. I traded mortgage-backed securities before retiring in 2001 to follow my childhood dream of writing cozy mysteries. Congratulations on your new career! I loved BLACK FRIDAYS and look forward to reading your latest.
