Hired to spearhead the biggest hostile takeover in Wall Street history, investment banker Andrew Falcon stumbles into a labyrinthine web of high-stakes financial, political, and environmental intrigue controlled by seven ruthless men

Blackwell North Amer
Andrew Falcon believes he has the stuff to make it to the top of this world, to become one of the masters of the game. He has staked his whole future on the biggest hostile takeover in Wall Street history, one that will net him a fee of $5 million - if he can pull it off fast.
But there is more to this monster deal than shows up on any computer printout. At a strip mall in Michigan, a small-time hit man takes out his final mark - and finds himself a target. In Montana, the chairman of the Federal Reserve drowns in the Bighorn River. Off St. Croix, an investment analyst is fed alive to the sharks. As these and other hints of savage carnage emerge, Falcon stumbles upon the secret scheme behind the takeover ... a plot so vast and brilliantly designed as to stagger the imagination ... so intricate as to mock all efforts to stop it or trace its source. Falcon discovers the power and terror of the Sevens.
The Sevens ... the members of this shadowy Ivy League organization have the wealth and will to do whatever they wish, be it provoking panic in the markets or sabotaging a Presidential administration. Falcon now realizes that he is not just a player in a hot deal but a pawn in a high-stakes game of greed, corruption, and perhaps something even more sinister. Because he has learned enough to bring everything to a halt, he is marked for destruction. Andrew Falcon's struggle for survival begins as he tries to outwit his betrayers - and a hidden enemy whose hatred is implacable.
