As for zero coupon bonds they are given a mention, but are no where prominent enough to justify the term . Wasn't as fast moving as some of the other books of Paul Erdman but it made you think of just how (shall we say) the other half live.

The story is full of the twists and turns of financial products, and though Willy is an many ways an endearing guy who doesn't get anyone killed, he is still treading on shaky ground. In fact, I kept wondering how I should feel about Willy.

by. Erdman, Paul, 1932-2007.

Takeover artist Willy Saxon returns from prison to Wall Street with a ruthless-and, an airtight plan, and a tax-free bond worth billions.

The new international bestseller from Paul Erdman. Willy Saxon counts Milken and Boesky among his peers-and, like them, he's served hard time. Now, aided by a beautiful woman, he shakes the world's money tree in a daring hustle based on tax-free zero-coupon bonds. Swiftly he brings Wall Street and the arrogant European bankers to their knees.

I highly recommend this book.

In Zero Coupon William F. Saxon (Willy) has just finished. I highly recommend this book. If all of his books were like Zero Coupon Erdman would have sold even more books than he did. I enjoyed it enough to continue reading as many of his books that I could find. Unfortunately, like so many times before, I’ve completed reading the series.

  • The plot is fast and furious. There are not many people I know that can buy an interest in a US brokerage, a US ratings agency and purchase a large ranch on the spot without carrying some form of detailed due diligence, but what the heck it's just a novel; isn't it! Then there's staff hirings of computer geeks and derivatives traders. That happens in double quick time too!

    Apart from what's mentioned above, that tend to dull the sense of reality, the novel maintains a fast paced course of events. The dealings and transactions encapsulate a number of exciting events that lead the reader on a chase to wonder whether the main character (Willy Saxon) will be returning for another enforced sojourn at Pleasanton.

  • Loved this book and the background knowledge of San Francisco.

  • Erdman never disappoints

  • This has to be one of the worse novels I have ever read regarding our financial system and its environment. The plot is non-existent and the characters shallower than a puddle in your driveway. The financial aspects are poorly covered and hardly recognizable to someone with experience in financial jargon, and hopeless for the average reader.
    This is a novel that never gets started. Mr. Erdman may have tons more experience with Wall Street and high finance than me, but even as a lay person, I kept waiting for something to happen; even something that would make me feel real suspense........it never arrived. I read the recommendations (which were basically pretty good) prior to buying it, but boy was I disappointed. I have never written a negative review, but I felt like my money had been stolen.

  • Yes, this is an older book, written after the 1990s Milken - Boesky financial scandals, but it is timely again, with the financial meltdown of 2009. Erdman's book features an unforgettable character, Willy Saxon, who craves risky financial transactions like some of us crave our favorite ice cream. As the story opens, Willy is just getting out of jail for some previous shady dealings. He doesn't waste any time setting himself up in a fancy hotel, making friends with a woman whose social standing gives her access to the rich and powerful, and calling on his previous contacts to help him get "back in the game." He goes to Liechtenstein to claim the millions of dollars he's stashed away, then begins buying companies, property and equipment and lining up people at a dizzying pace.

    I learned about "inverse floaters" and "zero coupons" about which I previously knew nothing. The story is full of the twists and turns of financial products, and though Willy is an many ways an endearing guy who doesn't get anyone killed, he is still treading on shaky ground. In fact, I kept wondering how I should feel about Willy. He was not an honest person, but, due to good guessing in some heart-stopping events that were the key to either success or another trip to the slammer, Willy emerges triumphant. Yes, he did stuff that was illegal, but he makes everything right. The ending of the story is actually delightful, and I won't spoil it by relating it here, but I can say I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. And I wonder - did too many Willy Saxons cause our current financial crash? Maybe too many who, unlike Willy, did not make it right?

  • This book is about international banker Willy Saxon. He is brought down by the junk bond market and has to serve a three year prison sentence.Unlike Boesky and Milken he refuses to turn

    state's evidence.He uses 74 million dollars that he has stashed in Europe to covertly purchase a San Fransisco investment house.

    Saxon also purchases a Napa Valley ranch which he turns into a

    high tech trading exchange.He makes use of bogus bonds(tax free

    zero coupon bond) and runs into problems.He manages to escape this situation by accurately predicting the plunge of the

    German mark.Willy also shows traits of becoming quite ladie's man with some of the wealthy women in San Francisco.This turned

    out to be a very interesting book.
