When financial consultant Keith Schooley took a job with one of the largest, most respected securities firms on Wall Street, he had high hopes for a successful career. He was proud to work for a company of such high integrity as Merrill Lynch. It didn't take long, however, for Schooley to realize Merrill Lynch's well-cultivated reputation was not based on what went on behind the facade. Merrill Lynch: The Cost Could Be Fatal¬óMy War Against Wall Street's Giant is Schooley's detailed account of the disturbing incidents that eventually led him to a courtroom battle with the behemoth firm.
