Book Synopsis:

Finally! A humorous who-done-it that tosses corruption onto the horns of the Wall Street bull. Trading Dreams slams the forces that undermined our stolen economy in a tale that is funny and thrilling. Author J.L. Morin unveils the ironies of Wall Street greed to the baseline of the Occupy movement.
   This suspenseful redemption story depicts the pitfalls of a new-hire at a bank. When her villain CFO sets her up as a scapegoat, Jerry fights back, teetering spectacularly between life as a trading-floor cyborg and as a revolutionary battling Wall Street corruption . . . as if she didn’t have enough to worry about running from a murderer.
   For Jerry, New York in its heyday means hanging with the guys, finding only users, and developing a sex addiction. She surmises, “If I could just be the bitch that he wanted, we could be happy forever as masochist and dominatrix.”   
   The economic crisis descends like a praying mantis devouring its mate at the moment of ecstasy. Not one to push clients into stocks the bank wants to dump, Jerry transforms herself and spreads the word through the human microphone. There’s little prospect of finding another job when Jerry blows the whistle.
