Baker & Taylor
Accidentally receiving an e-mail that reveals a massive corporate fraud, investment banker Conner Ashby finds himself dangerously targeted by the e-mail's sender, a situation that has him racing for his life while he works to uncover a trail of nation-wide misdeeds. 60,000 first printing.

Blackwell North Amer
An investment banker in the maverick firm Phenix Capital, Conner Ashby is doing all right for himself. At twenty-seven, he's practically the right-hand man of the company's founder - a wealthy old pro looking to make a big comeback on The Street while grooming Conner for a place at the top. Between his career and his gorgeous girlfriend, it's a good life, with every indication of getting even better - until a wayward E-mail crosses Conner's computer, and plunges his near-perfect world into a terrifying downward spiral.
"The 'operation' is way out of hand. If we don't do something, it's going to detonate." It's a communication not meant for Conner's eyes, between people he doesn't know, about a company he's never heard of - a company that's engaged in corporate fraud on a massive scale. With no way to trace the E-mail, it's impossible for Conner to act on the volatile discovery. But with millions of dollars at stake, high-powered careers in the balance, and hell to pay if the truth comes out, whoever clicked the "send" button by mistake isn't about to take any chances. And for Connor, the evening that began in the arms of a beautiful woman ends in a harrowing race for his life.
As he follows a twisting trail of misdeeds and misinformation that stretches nationwide, Conner slowly uncovers a shocking plot as undeniably real as the gunshot wound in his arm. Now, surviving will mean struggling to expose the truth as relentlessly as his shadowy enemies seek to conceal it - and fighting for his life as ruthlessly as those determined to end it.

Entertaining and fast-paced but nothing that I would call exceptional
