Who Killed Matthew B. Richardson III?

Banksters or Islamic Terrorists?

The head of one of the largest investment banking and securities firms in the United States has been assassinated on Times Square in the middle of New York City’s annual celebration of Halloween, the Festival of the Dead. Louis Martelli, NYPD, is one of the first detectives on the scene.

The case rapidly spirals downward into a maelstrom of death and intrigue linked both to the financial meltdown of 2008 and international terrorism. Who is behind the murders, and why is the FBI attempting to shut down Martelli’s investigation before it even can get started?

Martelli eventually learns the answers to these and other questions, but not before discovering how two Wall Street financial institutions have been complicit in funding Islamic terrorism.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

House of Cards by Theodore J. Cohen, is an action packed thriller by an accomplished author who has a keen understanding what happened during our mortgage meltdown and some of the skullduggery that may have contributed to it. It is a book you will not be able to put down once started.


Another nail-biter for Theodore Cohen. His thought-provoking blend of truth and fiction will keep you on the edge of your seat and fearing for the well-being of characters you’ve learned to care about.


If you want to read a mystery thriller based on real life issues so timely they setting type for them in tomorrow’s paper now, then this novel is a `must’ read today!


A well plotted and written Police drama against the backdrop of the financial meltdown of the 2008’s. An excellent description of solid and intuitive police work, with a cliffhanger ending. I highly recommend this book.


Multiple murders and some really despicable characters, what’s not to love about this thriller? This story is a winner! I give it Five Stars!

About The Author

I’m an engineer, scientist, communicator, investor, and former Antarctic explorer. What I’ve been able to do with my background is mix fiction with reality in ways that even my family and friends are unable to unravel!

All of my novels are based on real events…some from my own life, some ripped from the headlines. Of my writing in Death by Wall Street, for example, Gary Sorkin of Pacific Book Review said: “[S]imilar to the writing style of Michael Crichton and Tom Clancy, Ted Cohen adheres to short chapters laying out a mental storyboard in the reader’s mind. He possesses a writing style ideal for screenplay adaptation with visuals that can make for a good movie. Why wait for Hollywood – Death by Wall Street: Rampage of the Bulls is currently playing in a theater near you, the theater of your mind.”
