Summary

The number-one best-selling author of the blockbuster thrillers Airport and Hotel takes on the world of high finance.

Ben Roselli, president of First Mercantile American Bank and grandson of the founder, makes the shocking announcement that he's dying. With no offspring to inherit the company, Roselli knows that executive VPs Roscoe Heyward and Alex Vandervoort are the obvious candidates to succeed him. 

Heyward, who has been with First Mercantile for two decades, will do whatever it takes to bring in new clients and win the coveted presidency. Vandervoort, a newcomer from the Federal Reserve with a left-wing girlfriend, advocates for a socially responsible plan of growth. And now the discovery of counterfeit cash and credit card fraud threatens the future of the bank itself. 

From the day-to-day business dealings to the inner sanctums of the money trading center and the boardroom, Hailey's novel is a riveting tale of ambition, greed, and the US banking system.

A typical Hailey tour de Force

Arthur Hailey has always produced great books. Airport was my first experience and I have read every book he wrote. I was however, disappointed by the narration as the female voices sounded as though they had learning difficulties and the narrators inability to pronounce a couple of words that cropped up regularly rather spoilt the presentation. perhaps a man with a less deep voice would have been a better choice. I recently downloaded a book read by a woman and her male voices were more realistic than a man with a deep tenor trying to sound like a woman - perhaps there's a lesson to be learnt there. That criticism aside, it was a good presentation.

Fascinating history of banking

I love Arthur Hailey's books. while this was good, especially the refresher on the history of banking was great, overall the story does feel a bit over dramatic especially the Miles Easton storyline. overall a good book.

Good read

Classic Hailey, with lots of what was cutting edge industry in its day, much of it still topical, balanced with plenty of kink. All in, a good read.

Overwrought Dreck

This book isn’t as process-wonk good as “Hotel” nor as compelling as “Airport”.

It lapses into the nihilistic, cynical hedonism of the 1970s in Part II and the story just...stops. Hailey resorts to dumb teasers “little did he know that he’d see _____ again.”

Read Hotel and Airport. Leave this one alone.

Solids Arthur Hailey book!

Glad the Arthur Hailey books are coming to Audible. He tells a great story and always gives insight into the industry in the book and glimpses of the future which now, almost 50 years later, shows he was right or wrong in.

Another good book

It is well researched book n the financial system, woven nicely through the characters and a well developed story. Financial crisis described in the book seem so pale compared to scale of today’s market manipulations.
