I read this one in May 2011, and thought it was great, and added Lender to my list of authors to explore in greater detail.
Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Finn Keane is a novice investment banker who helps an aging Chairman try to buy his company back, while the ruthless Wall Street sharks who drove it into bankruptcy do all they can to stop them so the Wall Streeters can carve it up for themselves.
The Gravy Train is a 50,000 word novella of suspense, about 150 pages long. An excerpt from Bull Street, David Lender’s upcoming thriller set on Wall Street during the financial crisis, follows the text of The Gravy Train.
