Ridpath, Michael - Free to Trade. Heinemann, 1995, 1st. Paul Murray is a junior bond trader. He runs to keep fit, he hates the office coffee machine and he's forgotten what it's like to have a girlfriend. He loves his job though and he's keen to make a good impression - but how keen does he have to be? When the vivacious Debbie Chater, a colleague of Paul's, is found dead, floating in the Thames, his life is turned upside-down. Paul's search for an explanation becomes a crusade as he uncovers a web of deception, fraud and murder. Everywhere he looks he finds only more questions: What is 'Uncle Sam's Money Machine'? What is the connection between Irwin Piper, and American entrepreneur with much to hide, and an aristocratic English lawyer? Where does Cash Callaghan, the honesty-free bond salesman fit in? And why is Cash's assistant, Cathy Lasenby, once so standoffish, now so keen to help? The trouble is, Paul has no idea who is out to get him, let alone what it is they want to hide, and in a business where there's most definitely a killing to be made, he has every reason to feel paranoid. (flap). 9½" x 6", 346pp, dark blue cloth, hardback. Probably unread; very good; complete with very good, price-cut, wrapper.
