Daniel Youngblood is a world-weary oil and gas investment banker who’s ready to hit the beach, when he’s hired by a Saudi Prince for an OPEC deal where he can net himself $25 million as a swan song. At the same time, he meets and falls in love with Lydia, an exotic European fashion photographer, who he later discovers is really CIA-trained spy with a shocking past with the Saudi Prince. She convinces Daniel to enlist in what becomes a race for the lovers to stop a Muslim terrorist internet plot to bring down the Saudi royal family and cripple the world’s oil capacity, all before they wind up dead.

An excerpt from Bull Street, David Lender’s upcoming thriller set on Wall Street during the financial crisis, follows the text of Trojan Horse.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I haven’t read this author before “Trojan Horse”. I could not put my Kindle down, reading constantly and late until I finished the book. David Lender has a wonderful way with words and is able to tell the story so that you feel you are right there with the characters. It came across as very real and believable. I’m so glad I found this author.


Great, gripping thriller. Good pace, plotting and great characters. Accurate world created in high finance (I’m an investment banker, so’s the author). Really satisfying, chilling, fun, thrilling. And I read almost exclusively thrillers and romance. This has both, big time. It holds its own with the best out there.


Wow! I loved this book, but more than that I loved the Sasha character! She has the potential to carry a terrific series. She’s all woman but she stands up to the big boys by using all her gifts. She’s got brains, beauty, moxie, panache and determination like I haven’t seen in a female lead character in a long time.


I heartily recommend Trojan Horse. It was my first Kindle reading experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it. You will too.

About The Author

David Lender writes thrillers set in the financial sector based on his over 25-year career as a Wall Street investment banker. He draws on an insider’s knowledge from his career in mergers and acquisitions with Merrill Lynch, Rothschild and Bank of America for the international settings, obsessively driven personalities and real-world financial intrigues of his novels. His characters range from David Baldacci-like corporate power brokers to Elmore Leonard-esque misfits and scam artists. His plots reveal the egos and ruthlessness that motivate the players in the financial sector, as well as the inner workings of the most powerful of our financial institutions.

David began writing novels over ten years ago. At one point a friend sent his first novel to a prominent New York literary agent, whose reaction was, “Not bad for somebody who doesn’t know what he’s doing yet.” She introduced David to a seasoned thriller editor and publisher who had edited Robert Ludlum’s first nine thrillers; David spent the next 18 months working with him to learn his craft.
