Summary, etc.:
"Evan Stoess is a struggling young Wall Street analyst obsessed with fortune and fame. A trailer park kid who attended an exclusive prep school through a lucky twist of fate, Evan's unusual past leaves him an alien in both worlds, an outsider who desperately wants to belong. When a small stock he discovers becomes an overnight sensation, he is poised to make millions and land the girl of his dreams, but disaster strikes and he loses everything. Two years later a mysterious firm offers Evan a chance for redemption, and he jumps at the opportunity. His new job is to short stocks--to bet against the market. But when the stock goes up and he finds himself on the brink of ruin once again, another option presents itself: murder. At a moral crossroads, Evan must ask himself--how far will a man go for money and vengeance?"-- Provided by publisher.

Eat What You Kill

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

Evan Stoess graduated from one of the best prep schools in the country, courtesy of an absent father who left him with a full scholarship, along with an abusive mother and stepfather. But despite a stellar education, Evan always felt like an outsider, living with the nickname Kmart. When he lands the job of his dreams as a stock analyst and promptly picks a winner, he is riding high, until the CEO of the company dies, plunging the stock price and costing Evan his job. A few months later, he finds a new job, this time with a company that shorts stocks, betting they will falter. Once again Evan is riding high until he's not, but this time he realizes that if the current CEO dies, it will work in Evan's favor. Murder is now an option, and if he gets away with it, there will be no stopping him. Surprisingly, Stoess is a sympathetic character despite his murderous ways, which makes this debut novel an emotional rollercoaster of a read. Recommend it to fans of financial thrillers, especially those by Christopher Reich and Joseph Finder.--Alesi, Stacy Copyright 2014 Booklist

Publishers Weekly Review

Publishers Weekly

Stephen Frey fans will welcome Scofield's debut, a financial thriller that accessibly conveys the intricacies of a world in which a company can make millions on other companies whose stocks decline in value. New Yorker Evan Stoess, scarred by his time at a prep school where his less-than-fashionable attire earned him the denigrating nickname of Kmart, is obsessed with making as much money as he possibly can-and with rubbing his success in the faces of his teenage foes. He's prepared to do anything to achieve his goal. When fate scuttles a lucrative deal and hands him a setback, the resourceful and unscrupulous Evan is soon scheming again. Celebrity cameos-Jim Cramer and Jennifer Lawrence appear-don't add much, and the ending pulls a few punches, but readers will look forward to seeing more from Scofield, who has worked as a securities attorney and is currently a corporate lawyer.
