From the author of the extraordinary Edgar-nominated debut novel Black Fridays, a sensational story of murder and financial corruption—and one man’s continued search for redemption.

William von Becker ran one of the largest privately held investment banks in North America, until the bottom fell out, and the whole edifice was demonstrated to be a fraud.

After von Becker dies in prison, financial investigator Jason Stafford is hired by his family. There is still a lot of missing money out there, he’s told, and they want Stafford to find it before the Feds do—and certain other parties, some of whom are nowhere near as scrupulous in their methods. Bad things start happening to the people Stafford talks to. Soon bad things are happening to him as well.

Making it worse, his treacherous ex-wife has come to town, ostensibly to visit their young son. Stafford suspects there’s more to it than that, but even he has no idea how much that visit is about to change all their lives—and send him off to the next chapter of his life.

Review: Mortal Bonds (Jason Stafford #2)

User Review  - The Behrg - Goodreads

Michael Sears is a stunning author. I loved his first book Black Fridays and the sequel is just as riveting. Though the life and death suspense never felt as intense as in the first book, I could follow these characters just about anywhere. Looking forward to book #3. Read full review

Review: Mortal Bonds (Jason Stafford #2)

User Review  - Deborah Britton - Goodreads

Well written book with exciting twists and turns. I found myself really enjoying the parts about his relationships and the autistic son. I didn't care much about the main theme of drug money and bonds. I liked it but probably will not read another of his books. This was more Alan's style. Read full review
