A GRITTY THRILLER SET IN THE WORLD OF POWERFUL NEW YORK LAW FIRMS, FROM NICK SANTORA, WRITER OF THE HIT CRIME DRAMAS "THE SOPRANOS," "LAW & ORDER," "PRISON BREAK" and "BREAKOUT KINGS" AND THE NATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF "SLIP & FALL."
Is it really insider trading if you've been an outsider your entire life?
Five men. Five walks of life. Every day they come together at the white shoe law firm Olmstead & Taft. But they're not lawyers. They're "Printers": blue-collar guys consigned to the dark basement of the firm charged with copying, collating and delivering the mountains of paperwork that document millions of dollars of sensitive legal secrets.
Until the five are approached by an ambitious young attorney who teaches them what they have: insider information. Together they make a plan to take the classified documents that pass through their hands every day and use them to get rich. They create a joint account to deposit the spoils. An account with a safeguard--each one only knows one section of the access code.
Which means that for all five conspirators, there's no way out. But as too much money piles up to go unnoticed, the Printers will discover there's one thing even worse than being an outsider: being in too deep.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2012-03-23)

Television writer Santora (The Sopranos; Law & Order, Prison Break; Breakout Kings) combines characters from central casting with financial and street crime in his sophomore outing (after Slip & Fall). Rich Mauro was orphaned as a child, but now he has been offered a chance at a better life from his guardian angel, lawyer Max Seymour. Rich is starting out in the firm's document department, but he may make partner one day and be able to give his girlfriend Elyse the life that she deserves.

His boss is not too bright, while Rich's coworkers, an African American ex-petty criminal and a Puerto Rican former gang leader, are now trying to do right by their families. Spoiled rich kid lawyer Jason Spade is able to play on these five working-class men's insecurities to convince them to use information from documents they handle to make millions through insider trading. Unfortunately, Spade is actually working for a vicious criminal who will stop at nothing to get his money.

Verdict: Despite the novel's intriguing premise, Santora's characters lack depth, and all the thrills occur late in the story. Still, fans of his work on The Sopranos may be interested.
