Michael Sears


"Action-packed series launch...Razor-edged prose, sharply defined characters, and a fast-paced plot boost this noir-wrought drama." --Publishers Weekly

"Sears makes real estate law as sexy and dangerous as international intrigue." --Kirkus

"A contemporary Philip Marlowe comes to Queens in this wonderfully engaging caper--a brilliantly character-driven mystery--set in the seedy street corners and seedier courthouses of New York. Michael Sears, master of financial secrets, spins a non-stop pursuit of not-quite-illegal big bucks and the power that goes with them--and the wisecracking wise guys who will stop at nothing to grab it all. Sears absolutely nails the voice of his endearingly vulnerable tarnished-lawyer turned sletuh--TOWER OF BABLE is a terrific book." --Hank Phillilppi Ryan, nationally best-selling and award-winning author of The Murder List

"TOWER OF BABEL is so full of New York characters and locations that you'd swear it was written on asphalt...A fast-moving and, because it involves corrupt politicians and shady real estate developers, completely believable plot." --SJ Rozan, best-selling author of Paper Son

"If someone had told me one of my favorite new series would be about a disgraced Wall Street trader turned financial wrongdoings investigator, I would not have put money on it.
