    It is 1993, the banking world is in turmoil, and in New Jersey there is
    outright panic. The big New York banks and emerging regionals are
    gobbling up everything in the state. Every financial institution is now both
    predator and prey. The Fed has opened the floodgates, and traditional
    banking ethics are disappearing. At a used book sale, Jim Fairmont, a
    career banker having worked for First State Bank for more than twenty-
    five years, finds a blank, signed invoice belonging to an auto parts
    supplier. The document is contained in a box of books donated by Larry
    McBride, a new-breed, brash, thirty-three-year-old former New York
    banker. McBride had been hired by First State Bank to give it credibility
    in its defensive entry into international banking and who, like Jim, is an
    avid book collector. Alerted by McBride’s strange behavior at the book
    sale as he searched for something, which Jim suspects was the invoice,
    Jim begins to investigate McBride’s relationships with some of First
    State’s customers. What he uncovers is much bigger than he ever
    imagined, involving clearly unethical conduct and questionable
    international asset movements. His discoveries put him in the sights of
    New Jersey’s underworld who are determined to protect McBride and his
    clients, placing not only Jim’s life in danger, but those of his close
    associates’ as well.
