It is hard to imagine the time before ATMs and when credit card authorizations were done live by telephone. This novel is best regarded as a well-researched historical post-Watergate banking thriller. As such, it is quite exciting and still gives some relevant insights into the banking business. It is an excellent easy summer read, but for better characterization I would recommend the Leslie Waller trilogy "The Banker", "The Family", "The American".

It was on Tuesday that old Ben Rosselli, president of First Mercantile American Bank and grandson of the bank's founder, made an announcement, startling and sombre, which reverberated through every segment of the bank and far beyond. And the next day, Wednesday, the bank's "flagship" downtown branch discovered the presence of a thief, beginning a series of events which few could have foreseen, and ending in financial wreckage, human tragedy and death. Interwoven with the dreams, passions, rivalries and guilty secrets of its employees are currency and credit card frauds, embezzlement, a prison gang-rape, Mafia torture, and the call-girl sex that sweetens irregular business deals. From the paperback edition.
