Read full description of the books:
Amsterdam, 1659: On the world’s first commodities exchange, fortunes are won and lost in an instant. Miguel Lienzo, a sharp-witted trader in the city’s close-knit community of Portuguese Jews, knows this only too well. Once among the city’s most envied merchants, Miguel has suddenly lost everything. Now, impoverished and humiliated, living in his younger brother’s canal-flooded basement, Miguel must find a way to restore his wealth and reputation.
Miguel enters into a partnership with a seductive Dutchwoman who offers him one last chance at success—a daring plot to corner the market of an astonishing new commodity called “coffee.” To succeed, Miguel must risk everything he values and face a powerful enemy who will stop at nothing to see him ruined. Miguel will learn that among Amsterdam’s ruthless businessmen, betrayal lurks everywhere, and even friends hide secret agendas.

Read information about the authorI am a novelist living in San Antonio, Texas, though, for the record, I am not from Texas. I just live here. I have four novels published: A Conspiracy of Paper (which won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel) and A Spectacle of Corruption were both national bestsellers. They are set in 18th century London and feature Benjamin Weaver, a Jewish former pugilist, thief-taker for hire. Weaver will be back in 2009 with The Devil’s Company, but he’s featured in a new short story, The Double Dealer” in the anthology Thriller , edited by James Patterson. The Coffee Trader is set in 17th century Amsterdam. It was also a national bestseller, and is a book group favorite. My most recent novel, The Ethical Assassin , is a contemporary animal rights thriller about door-to-door encyclopedia salesmen.
My next novel, tentatively called The Whiskey Rebels, will be out in September, 2008. It's set in New York, Philadelphia and Western Pennsylvania during the early 1790s.
