Nothing PersonalAbout the Story

From the publisher:   “Warren Hament is a bright young man who wanders into a career in finance in the early 1980s. Nothing Personal is the extraordinary story of his rapid ascent toward success, painted against a landscape of temptation and personal discovery. Introduced to the seductive, elite bastions of wealth and privilege, and joined by his gorgeous and ambitious girlfriend, he gets a career boost when his mentor is found dead.

Warren soon finds himself at the center of two murder investigations as a crime spree seemingly focused on powerful finance wizards plagues Wall Street. The blood-soaked trail leads to vast wealth and limitless risk as Warren uncovers unexpected opportunity and unknown dangers at every turn and must face moral dilemmas for which he is wholly unprepared.

Nothing Personal is a stellar debut novel, which follows an increasingly jaded protagonist as he comes of age in a rarified, deeply corrupt world. Offit, a former senior insider, unflinchingly divulges Wall Street’s culture of abuse and portrays the insidious, creeping forces of greed, sex, and power—and the terrible price paid in their thrall.”

About the Author


From the author’s website: “Mike Offit spent three decades on Wall Street, delaying a career in writing on the advice of his father, after graduating from Brown University. After briefly working in advertising and then trading commodities, Mike attended Columbia Business School, and then quickly became a star trader in First Boston’s pioneering mortgage department. He was recruited and left for two years to build and run what quickly became  a top-tier mortgage trading desk for Prudential, then returned to develop and run the hugely successful commercial mortgage and asset backed securities businesses for First Boston. He then became the senior trader in both businesses for Goldman, Sachs, where he also worked closely with the Principal Investment Group. After a serious bout of vertigo and a full year fighting disability, he returned to the business. Finally, he was recruited to start a Commercial Mortgage and Real Estate Group for Deutsche Bank, and quickly equaled or surpassed the long-established efforts of the bulge-bracket firms, building a unit that is still recognized as a leader in the business. A few years ago, Mike suffered a broken neck and spent part of his recovery finally finishing the manuscript, a struggle against pain and medication. His wife, Dara Mitchell, ran the American Paintings department at Sotheby’s, advising some of America’s wealthiest collectors and becoming a major force in the private sale of important pictures, while also building and managing market leading auction sales. She recently retired after 26 years, and is now a consultant and advisor, working with collectors, funds, museums and auction houses internationally.”
