Don't miss this fast-paced, exciting new thriller set in the seductive world of incredible wealth.
Although a novel, UNHEDGED reads as if taken straight from today's headlines. UNHEDGED is a fast-moving thriller set in a seductive world of incredible wealth where no price is too high to pay for getting – and keeping – whatever it is that you want. Topical and all too realistic, it serves up more than enough twists and turns to keep the reader, regardless of background, emotionally enthralled. Author, hedge fund veteran and CNBC Contributor, Stephen L. Weiss is just the right person to take you on this incredible journey.
Legendary investor Vernon Albright is the founding partner of Parthenon Capital, a $20 billion hedge fund that counts among its investors some of the world's wealthiest people. Albright, a billionaire himself, owes his success not just to investment acumen but also to his relationship with shadowy financier Buck Hendricks. After an unauthorized trade went horribly wrong, and fearful of having to swap his pinstripes for prison stripes, Albright cut a deal with Hendricks that would have made Faust blush, ceding behind the scenes control in Parthenon in exchange for a financial lifeline. Although Hendricks' overbearing personality is becoming intolerable for Albright, his insights have led to substantial trading profits for Parthenon making it difficult to walk away.
Jeremy Cranford, Albright’s younger partner and his moral antithesis, is the only person standing in the way of the scheme’s continued success. Conflict, suspense and danger abound as Cranford surreptitiously seeks the truth about Hendricks and Albright. As Cranford delves deeper into the mystery, his concerns become more than financial: someone is threatening to kill him and his family. His best friend, whom he recruited into the firm, has been murdered; he is being stalked by a psychotic day trader who blames Cranford for the losses that caused his family to walk out on him; and, if his suspicions are confirmed, as a partner in the firm he will be equally culpable in the eyes of the law.
UNHEDGED is to the investment world what Grisham’s novels are to the legal profession. No financial expertise is required to enjoy this novel, only a willingness to take a thrilling literary journey.
