Due Diligence

A Thriller

Jonathan Rush

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.



When Louisiana-based CEO Mike Wilson needs to do a deal in a hurry, he turns to Wall Street investment bank Dyson Whitney. If they succeed in helping him buy transatlantic rival BritEnergy, there’ll be a $70 million fee. If they fail, there’s nothing. 

Rookie associate Rob Holding is thrown onto the team, doing due diligence at the investment bank. He quickly finds reason to suspect that there’s more to the urgency of this deal than Mike Wilson has revealed. With their eyes on a huge fee, no one else at Dyson Whitney wants to know if there are problems.  But when a body turns up and Rob realizes it was meant to be him, he has no choice but to prove that he’s right – or die in the attempt.

Due Diligence is set vividly in the post-credit-crunch world of international big business, the suspense never lets up as the action swings from war room to boardroom, from New York to London and back again in this action-packed and lightning-fast thriller.

Publishers Weekly Review

Mar 21, 2011 – The pseudonymous Rush, a management consultant, succeeds against all odds at injecting suspense into the details of a corporate takeover in his thriller debut, but he loses points by resolving the intriguing plot with developments straight out of John Grisham. Rob Holding, a rookie analyst for the New York investment bank Dyson Whitney, gets tapped to be part of the team working to help Mike Wilson, CEO of the utility company Louisiana Light, acquire a British company in the same field. The transaction would yield a multimillion dollar payout for Dyson Whitney. The catch is Wilson's ambitiously short schedule to complete it. Rush tosses in elements that readers of The Firm will find all too familiar—mob ties and a young idealist who learns of corruption and must find a way to reveal it without jeopardizing his career and his life. The less than plausible denouement renders what came before more cartoonish than realistic.
