"Two brothers, millions of dollars and the heist of a lifetime"

""After escaping the corrupt back rooms of Washington, DC, Mike Ford is again playing a dangerous game this time the stakes are even higher.

Mike s brother is in over his head in a powerful conspiracy to steal a secret worth billions of dollars from the little-known but unbelievably influential trading desk at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. In an effort to help, Mike soon finds himself trapped by the dangerous men in charge and forced to call on all the skills of his criminal past in order to escape.

In this sharp, pulse-pounding sequel to" The 500," Mike Ford again stars as the cunning and courageous ex con man with a big heart, and Matthew Quirk confirms that he is one of the most exciting thriller writers at work today."

display_description The Fords are an old DC family with deep and powerful connections--to petty thieves, to guys who know how to get their hands on specialized weapons, and to forgers who can, for the right price, produce a pristine new passport in twenty-four hours. Mike Ford, youngest member of the clan, is a Harvard-educated lawyer who has worked hard to build a legitimate life for himself in New York, away from his family and their world, complete with a comfortable house and beautiful, wealthy fiancée. But it only takes one desperate phone call from his brother, who's never had the knack for normal life, to drag Mike back, into a heist bigger and more complicated than anything either has ever seen: robbing the bank's bank.
