Tommy Quinn has just landed the job of his dreams as an investment banker at J. S. Spenser, as well as the perfect girl, Frances Sloan, the daughter of one of New York's oldest moneyed families. As he travels from the most exclusive ballrooms to the stuffiest boardrooms, from the golf links to the bedrooms of Park Avenue - and from the debauched yacht of a Mexican billionaire to the Ritalin-strewn dorm room of his younger brother - he finds that the job and the girl are not what they once seemed.

Set against the backdrop of money, lust, power, corruption, cynicism, energy, and excitement that is Wall Street, Dana Vachon's debut is suffused with an authenticity that only an author who lives in that world can provide. With Mergers & Acquisitions, he delivers a stylish and hilarious tale of the lives and loves of well-to-do young Manhattanites in their first year on Wall Street.

Sharp, fast-paced, and bitingly witty, Mergers & Acquisitions is a compulsively listenable story of New York's young, ambitious, and wealthy that is destined to become one of the year's most buzzed-about debuts.
