On the Floor free pdf "The smartest financial novel since "The Bonfire of the Vanities," and the first with a fully drawn female heroine."--Frank Partnoy, bestselling author of "F.I.A.S.C.O.: The Inside Story of a Wall Street Trader" and "Wait: The Art and Science of Delay" Longlisted for the Orange PrizeA hard-living investment banker has three days to decide her destiny in this thrilling novel. It has been 182 days of vodka and insomnia since Geri Molloy got dumped. A twenty-eight-year-old investment banker with a rare knack for numbers, Geri counts the days since her breakup with the same determination that has made her serious capital on her firm's London trading floor. But it is January of 1991, and war in the Middle East is about to shake up the markets--and maybe also change the course of her career. The firm's biggest client is Felix Mann, a reclusive hedge fund manager in Hong Kong, who will only talk to Geri. But Geri is being pushed to her breaking point, and several rivals are hungry for a seat at the table. When she finds herself caught up in a high-stakes takeover, Felix is game for the power play--but his price tag is Geri's future. At once fiercely intelligent and utterly gripping, Aifric Campbell's "On the Floor" is a sharp-edged story about love and money, the cruel appraisals we make of one another, and what it really means for a woman to take control of her life.
