Banker Halsey Stuart is on his way back home to New Jersey when his boss and brother-in-law Chairman Desmond Cain of Fortune Beach Bank pleads with Stu to stay and help stave off an oncomming investigation by both state and federal banking regulators. He soon finds incriminating information about the Chairman and his handiwork at the bank.

"Mr. Stuart, your problems are far above and beyond any regulatory enforcement concerns.  I'm here to advise you to cooperate with us...or, we'll seek an indictment on you as well. Before you decide, it's only fair to tell you that, as of right now, we believe Cain has been using you in a number of his dealings without your knowledge.  Even if that proves out, you're still in trouble.  From the profile we've built up on him, it's pretty clear that if he thinks you're going to blow the whistle on him when this thing heats up, you're going to need some protection."

Des believed that bank regulators were like back seat drivers, never experiencing the reality of the competitive banking world.  He soon finds out who's really in control.  This page turning financial thriller entwines a United States Congressman, Chairman of the House Banking Committee who comes to the aid of the bank's flamboyant chairman.

Traces of Greed is non stop from page one. I raced thorugh this book and was continually focused on what would happen next.The writer has done a great job intertwining a thriller with informative behind the scenes knwoledege of the world of banking, regualtory influence on the banking world, and how some would feel they are above the law.

Never a lull in the action. Keeps reader interested. Great book for a first time author. Characters are believable and interesting. Can't wait for the sequel!

Posted October 19, 2010, 4:42 PM EST: After picking up this book, I'll bet you will have as difficult a time putting it backdown as I did. It is an extremely well written story of intigue, bank fraud, political corruption, drug and gem smuggling, murder and mayhem. All being delivered in a more sophisticated environment than usually expected. And, if that alone is not enough, the author simultaneously and skillfully entertwines the personal and sometimes highly antagonistic relationships which are, to some degree, present in every extended family which spans three (3) or more generations. A real "Thriller With A Heart." the author also leaves the distinct hint that a sequel may be in the works. It is a well thought out and well told story, and should be on your "Gotta Read" list for certain. I believe Mr. Bessler's star is just beginig to rise. ~ Dennis Staer ~
