This instant New York Times bestseller offers a withering view of life on Wall Street from the perspective of an unhappy insider who is too hooked on the money to find a way out, even as his career is ruining his marriage and corroding his soul.
It’s 2005. Nick Farmer is a thirty-five-year-old bond trader with Bear Stearns clearing seven figures a year. The novelty of a work-related nightlife centering on liquor, hookers, and cocaine has long since worn thin, though Nick remains keenly addicted to his annual bonus. But the lifestyle is taking a toll on his marriage—and on him.
When a nerdy analyst approaches him with apocalyptic prognostications of where Bear’s high-flying mortgage-backed securities trading may lead, Nick is presented with the kind of ethical dilemma he’s spent a lifetime avoiding. Throw in a hot financial journalist who seems to be more interested in him than in the percolating financial Armageddon and the prospect that his own wife may have found a new romantic interest of her own, and you have the recipe for Nick’s personal and professional implosion.
By turns hilarious and harrowing, Ghosts of Manhattan follows a winning but flawed protagonist as he struggles to find the right path in a complicated urban heart of darkness

Ghost of Manhattan
Very enlightening...helped me understand the business that is Wall Street. Well done. Looking forward to the author's next endeavor.
Loved it.. It's a book I looked forward to reading every night.. Great imagery characters, and writing... I need more books like this!!
Fun, quick read
I chose this book on the recommendation I saw in an interview on Fox. It was totally different than the type of books I typically read. It was tough to imagine the train wreck of Nick's self destructive choices. But I felt that it was believable. I'll look forward to the next book by this author.
