Overview

Someone is assassinating the financial industry's most powerful players in cold blood and in broad daylight in intricate, eerily relevant new thriller from Alan Glynn, the award-winning author of "Bloodland" and "Limitless."
On a bright Saturday morning, a Wall Street investment banker is shot dead while jogging in Central Park. Hours later, one of New York City's savviest hedge-fund managers is gunned down outside a restaurant. Are these killings a coordinated terrorist attack, or just a coincidence? Investigative journalist Ellen Dorsey has a hunch they're neither, and when an attempt is made on the life of another CEO, her theory is confirmed. The story blows wide open, and as Ellen races to stay ahead of the curve, her path collides with that of a recession-hit architect, Frank Bishop, whose daughter's disappearance may be tied to the murders.

Set deep in a shadow world of corrupt business deals and radical politics with a plot that echoes today's headlines in haunting and unexpected ways "Graveland" is a mind-blowing thriller that intensifies with every page."

The third in Edgar-finalist Glynn’s loosely knit series of financial thrillers (after 2011’s Bloodland) starts with a promising setup. New York City journalist Ellen Dorsey, who specializes in long political profiles, becomes intrigued by two recent murders: that of an investment banker, shot dead while jogging in Central Park; and, later the same day, that of a hedge fund manager, gunned down outside a swanky Manhattan restaurant. While the police bumble around and the media buzz about a coordinated attack on Wall Street executives, Dorsey seeks to connect the killings. The case’s logical conclusion comes in the form of a standoff and gun battle in a tenement, but there’s still about a third of the book to go. Glynn follows a few plotlines that have little pop and ties up a thread from the series opener, 2009’s Winterland. Readers may feel that the experience is like watching the stock market ticker on an uneventful day. Agent: Antony Harwood, Antony Harwood Ltd. (June)
