Ex-Wall Street trader, ex-con, and devoted father to an autistic son, Jason Stafford first appeared in Black Fridays, “one of the year’s finest crime debuts” (Booklist). Now, in Mortal Bonds, he goes to work for the wealthy family of a financial criminal…
 
William von Becker’s multibillion-dollar fund was limited to only the luckiest investors. Or so they thought.
 
After the house of cards collapses and the disgraced von Becker commits suicide in prison, his family asks Jason Stafford to find out where the money is—and who is targeting them with attempted kidnappings. There are plenty of angry suspects to take a look at. But with roughly three billion of von Becker’s ill-gotten dollars floating around somewhere, there are other interested parties as well. They’re determined. They’re powerful. And they’re not nearly as polite as the Feds…

Pretty good read, and well written; wasn't to taken with his last novel. Tightly woven financial thriller. [Liked the inclusion of an autistic son.]

"In this sequel to the Shamus Award-winning Black Fridays, former Wall Street trader Jason Stafford is hired to find three billion dollars - the proceeds of a Ponzi scheme whose author died in prison amid financial scandals. But each person he contacts seems to suffer suspicious - and deadly - accidents. As in the 1st book in the series, Jason's troublesome ex-wife complicates things, while scenes with his autistic son add a touching, personal counterpoint to the shady financial activities and even shadier major players."
