Hired to find missing Wall Street analyst Gregory Danes, private detective John March uncovers a deadly web of financial deception as his investigation leads him through the corrupt inner workings of the financial world.

Blackwell North Amer
John March has been hired to find missing Wall Street analyst Gregory Danes. Once ubiquitous on television, Danes's star went into steep decline along with the stock market: now he's best known for his volatile temper and his obsession with restoring his tattered reputation.
His ex-wife, a fashionable painter, wants to know why the alimony checks have stopped arriving. But what appears to be a straightforward missing persons case quickly becomes something much more deadly. March unearths a rat's nest of family strife, business betrayals, and deceptions, and finds that Danes left a long line of enemies in his troubled wake - some of whom are also hunting for the missing man.
March's investigation now takes on a terrifying urgency as it leads him through the corrupt corridors of white-collar crime and the underworld of the Russian mob, and into the more intricate maze of the human heart.

This is Peter Spiegelman's second mystery. The first, award winning "Black Maps", was a strong book, leaving this reader eager for more. "Death's Little Helpers" is even better. Set in New York's financial world, the author provides both an excellent mystery and some insight into a community driven by power and greed. .
