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.
Mike Ford finds himself utilizing skills from his former life of crime when he helps his brother out of his involvement in stealing a billion-dollar trade secret from the Federal Reserve Bank in this follow-up to The 500.

"n this fast-paced follow-up to The 500, lawyer Mike Ford finds himself more or less forced into utilising skills from his former life of crime when he agrees to help his brother steal the Federal Reserve's directive guiding U.S. economic policy. Though he'd initially planned to fail, the lives of his increasingly irritated fiancée and his ex-con father depend upon his success. As does his own. The action, increasing suspense, and twisty plot hold plenty of appeal, especially to readers of financial thrillers by the likes of Joseph Finder or Christopher Reich."
