A Novel of Wall StreetBook - 2014
"Nothing Personal is the stunning story of Warren Hament, a bright young man who stumbles into a career in finance in the early 1980s. His rapid rise exposes the inner workings of the amoral, crude, and brutal world of top-tier investment banking as only a true insider could know them. Introduced to the elite bastions of wealth and privilege, and with his beautiful and ambitious girlfriend pushing him, he gets a major boost when first his patrician mentor is murdered, and then a dangerous and powerful rival is bludgeoned to death in the middle of a tryst with a young financial analyst. Young Warren soon finds himself at the center of a whirlwind investigation of four deaths, in control of a vast and hidden fortune, and in love with a gorgeous woman whose past may hold the key to unlocking the mystery, before the killer comes calling again. Set in the luxurious homes and clubs of New York, Hobe Sound, Dark Harbor, the Hamptons, and Europe, Nothing Personal is a stellar debut about coming of age in a rarefied, deeply corrupt world. Offit unflinchingly portrays the insidious, creeping power of greed and lust, and the terrible price some pay in their thrall"-- Provided by publisher.
