Vig – A Financial Thriller
by John Nuckel
“We facilitate financial transactions for a fee. That is what we call the Vig.”
The most corrupt decade in Wall Street history was a good time to steal a little bit of money from a lot of people.
Meet Frank McGinley. He has a penchant for vodka and a head for numbers. As an equity options specialist on the American Stock Exchange, he discovers a scam which diverts small amounts from thousands of trading accounts into the pockets of a con man. Forty grand in an envelope is passed to him across the table. It may be enough to make Frank look the other way.
