The Inner Sanctum by Stephen Frey

  David Mitchell, fast-rising portfolio manager at the exclusive Sagamore Investnebt Managing Group, has just been handed his future on a golden platter. If all goes according to plan, a struggling plane-manufacturing company will win a coveted government defense contract... and David himself will become very, very rich. Gaining the trust of IRS agent Jesse Hayes is a critical part of thescheme. But the unwitting recruit has troubles of her own. Her boss has been found dead, and incriminating tax files level suspicion at a high-profile senatorial candidate
  As the pieces of an explosive puzzle fall into place, david and Jesse realize they are pawns in a top-secret billion-dollar conspiracy stretching from the frenzy of Wall Street to the darkest corridors of Washington D.C., where a shocking military secret lies hidden
   and where the lines between money and politics, and life and death are razor thin....

  Fast-paced action and shocking conclusions are trademarks of Frey's novels. Has been called the "Grisham of Wall Street". I think it lends itself perfectly to a screenplay. Highly recommended...
