Top Producer

(2009)
(The first book in the Grove O'Rourke series)
A novel by

 
 
In a world that moves as fast as finance does, top producers have to think three steps ahead and make snap decisions. Theirs is a blurred version of reality, one that conceals moves as much as it rewards the bold ones. All too easily, scams can be disguised as success; plotting can be mistaken for killer instincts. And as Grove O'Rourke finds out, 'Nothing obscures vulnerability like success. Nothing that is, except for friendships.'

But this book isn't about stocks and bonds - it's about people. About Grove O'Rourke, top producer at the investment firm of Sachs, Kidder, and Carnegie, and about his best friend, Charlie Kelemen, whose spectacular murder is carried out in front of hundreds of horrified party-goers at the opening of the novel. It's about Charlie's widow, who comes to Grove for help after her husband's death, even though she's hiding a dark secret. And it's about how money - vast sums of money - can cover up even the most glaring imper fections in relationships, and fool everyone.

Well, almost everyone.

With the ease of someone who has lived in the world of top producers, NorbVonnegut has crafted a sharp, dark thriller that will make you think - and then double-check your investments.
