A Scam Story for Thanksgiving

Two days ago I was driving up Amsterdam Avenue in NYC, en route to pick up my daughter at Columbia University before returning to Rhode Island for Thanksgiving, talking hands free on my cell. That’s when my world unraveled. I’m working on a non-fiction book with tips...

The Greatest Stock Story Ever Told

Spoiler alert: The villains in my novels all come from Yale. But my column in today’s WSJ is non-fiction…and it sure was fun to hear these wealth-management stories from Joe McNay, a great guy and non-villain from Yale’s class of 1956. Among other things, he describes what it was like to manage money for Bill and Hillary Clinton…

If anybody can turn international finance and hedge funds into a riveting thriller, it’s Norb Vonnegut. The Gods of Greenwich is a pure delight, racing relentlessly from the bedrooms of… Jeffery Deaver

What I hope for most is that readers will one day tell me how the five practices in this book saved them from getting ripped off by financial predators… Norb Vonnegut

Norb Vonnegut is the seriously under-appreciated author of three glittery thrillers about fiscal malfeasance. This may not sound like a red-hot franchise, but he has made it one. With “Top Producer” (2009), “The Gods of Greenwich” (2011) and now “The Trust,” he is three for three in his own improbably sexy genre.

About Norb

The New York Times describes my novels as “money porn,” “a red-hot franchise,” and “glittery thrillers about fiscal malfeasance.” Through fiction I explore the dark side of money and focus on the motivations of those who have it, want more, and will steamroll anybody who gets in their way.

I wasn’t always an author. I spent most of my career in private wealth management with several brokerage firms, primarily Morgan Stanley, and with a registered investment adviser in New York City. Back then, I always thought the people of Wall Street and their clients—smart, goofy, the complete spectrum from good to evil—would make great characters in novels.

But now with the coming release of my first non-fiction book, The Dirty Little Secrets of Money, I think you will find that fact is scarier than fiction. I use stories to illustrate techniques that could save you from financial predators…like the time I spent 30 seconds on a background check and helped prevent a friend from losing $200,000 in a scam.
