The phrase “making a killing on Wall Street” assumes a literal meaning in Stephen Frey’s latest financial thriller. Christian Gillette is suddenly thrust into the chairmanship of Everest Capital after the suspicious death of its founder. Gillette, who immediately finds himself the target of assassins, discovers that his closest colleagues may be enemies and that a cadre of unscrupulous competitors and politicians is out to destroy his company. Scott Brick's reading is outstanding. He is particularly effective conveying Gillette's fears and doubts and his evolving sense that he can trust no one. Most memorable is Brick's portrayal of Paul Strazzi, Everest’s major competitor, whose ruthlessness comes through in every syllable Brick utters.
