The latest Stan Turner thriller begins on the infamous Black Monday, October 19, 1987. As the stock market is taking a nosedive and the nation's banking system falls into crisis, Stan is asked by the CIA to help an operative unravel an IRS garnishment and ends up caught in a fire-fight between the CIA and the FBI. His day grows more complicated still as he receives the surprising news that he has been named as the executor of the estate of one Lottie West, who has died in suspicious circumstances and who--Stan soon discovers--has been hiding priceless art treasures stolen during World War II. So the last thing Stan needs is a visit from his law partner, Paula Waters, who tells him she wants to defend a man accused of killing the chairman of one of the troubled thrifts. And it's only Monday...
