Synopsis

Black Maps by Peter Spiegelman

For private investigator John March, the past is never dead and buried. Years after the personal tragedy and professional disaster that shattered his life, he's still running hard through the streets of Manhattan, from memories and grief and ghosts that won't rest easy. A different sort of demon haunts his client, Rick Pierro - blackmail.
From humble beginnings, Pierro has risen nearly to the top of the Wall Street heap, and seems to have it all - the seven-figure salary, the Park Avenue apartment, the beautiful trophy wife. And then, like a message from the grave, the fax appears. Anonymous, poisonous, it drags Pierro backwards, into a vast money-laundering conspiracy, and threatens to bring his glossy world crashing down around him. Now March must follow in the footsteps of a monstrous manipulator, through the wreckage of a bank that made billions in blood money, past the ruined lives of the Wall Street insiders and outcasts caught up in its collapse, to the borders of a government investigation gone bad, and to the doorstep of a psychopath.

It's a twisted path, into the darkest territories of greed, corruption and coercion - a black map to murder.

Reviews

' a stylish and fast-moving first novel .It makes gripping reading, a notch above the average financial thriller, and Mr Spiegelman is a welcome addition to the genre.'
Suzanna Yager Sunday Telegraph

' an important and fascinating book' Chicago Tribune

'Does the phrase 'financial thriller' sound like an oxymoron? Take a look at Black Maps and change your mind'. Washington Post

'It's hard to believe that Black Maps is a debut novel. Spiegelman's prose is stylish and assured, the timing precise and the characterisation deliciously astute.' INK

'This is an excellent go at a 21st century thriller this story of shenanigans in the financial world and the twisted path to murder and worse, works well' Mark Timlin Independent on Sunday
