40 billion reasons for murder . . .

Maggie Fender’s law degree remains a daydream as she supports her ex-felon half-brother and their incoherent father.  Suffering from Alzheimer’s, Dad’s rarely lucid, but when he’s accused of murder, only the gorgeous Russian neighbor flickers Maggie’s hope.

In the news, disgraced hedge fund manager Paddy O’Mara awaits trial for bilking investors out of forty billion dollars. The legendary dark pool wizard offered phenomenal profits.  But the SEC discovered O’Mara never made a single legitimate investment. His fund was a total scam.

Maggie’s Dad barely functions, but her hacker brother swears Dad is sending them vital messages about O’Mara’s pot of gold.  A private investigator hunts for the money and aims to find it before a notorious Russian mobster.  When their efforts focus on Maggie’s father, her remaining hope turns to rampant fear.

She’s the only adult left in her family, and her weary camel won’t carry a single extra straw.  Her teenage brother’s hacking skills landed his ass in prison, but he swears he was framed. No fans of the Fender family, the local police assume Dad ran away when he goes missing. Maggie will never find her father without help.

But who can Maggie trust when everyone has betrayed her?

Maybe they gave a special discount to juvenile ex-felons. 

Logic and intuition converged in this kid to form uncannily accurate assessments.

The response-once a part of her lips-came back like a second language, “No comment.”
