Description

James B. Stewart, bestselling author of Den of Thieves, raves that Fixers “is a hugely entertaining novel that steps boldly into the most perplexing and enduring mystery of the financial crisis: why its perpetrators were not only not punished, but rewarded by the government.”

In Fixers, Michael M. Thomas, the New York Times-bestselling novelist and longtime financial insider, has crafted an exhilarating thriller of a top conspiracy between Wall Street and the White House.

On a winter’s night, a well-heeled “cultural consultant” named Chauncey Suydam gets a call from the head of the world’s most powerful investment bank, who says a financial crisis is brewing and has a plan to insulate Wall Street from the fallout—and keep people such as himself out of jail. His mission for Chauncey is simple: to help funnel millions of dollars to a presidential candidate espousing change, in exchange for a few Wall Street–friendly names in the resultant administration.

Yet as Chauncey wends his way among the nation’s political elite and becomes addicted to his masterful manipulations, he sees with greater clarity than ever how decisions really get made—on Wall Street and in Washington. And as the magnitude of the fix he’s perpetrating begins to sink in, its poisonous affect on Main Street becomes apparent, and his addiction to his masterful manipulations evident, Chauncey starts to have second thoughts. Is it too late?

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 18, 2016 – Former Lehman Brothers partner Thomas (Love and Money) doesn't make it easy for readers to buy into this outlandish novel's conspiracy theory about the election of Barack Obama. Excerpts from the diary of Chauncey Suydam, a former CIA agent, reveal the "truth" behind major political events. In February 2007, Chauncey's old boss at the Company, Leon Mankoff, asks him to fix the upcoming presidential election. Mankoff predicts that the country will be hit by a financial collapse so far-reaching that everyone will be clamoring for the heads of those responsible. Both Chauncey and Mankoff believe that a President Hillary Clinton would be hell-bent on sending the irresponsible money men to jail—and that Obama, referred to elliptically as "Our Guy," would not. Obama's campaign is offered a $75 million bribe, in the form of campaign contributions laundered to appear to come from small donors, in exchange for agreeing to put in place officials sympathetic to Wall Street. Unfortunately, a plodding plot doesn't do justice to a tantalizing what-if scenario sure to offend Obama supporters.
