Business Week called internationally renowned finance expert Janet Tavakoli the “Cassandra of Credit Derivatives” for predicting the financial crisis. Now she shocks again with Archangels: Rise of the Jesuits, her prescient debut financial fiction thriller. Pope Benedict XVI resigned and a Jesuit was elected Pope, after she published her novel.
Tavakoli’s non-fiction memoirs, Decisions: Life and Death on Wall Street, and Unveiled Threat: A Personal Experience of Fundamentalist Islam and the Roots of Terrorism, tell rousing tales from first-hand experience.
Her non-fiction finance books are global bestsellers in their respective professional fields: Credit Derivatives and Structured Finance & Collateralized Debt Obligations. Her book for laymen on the global financial meltdown, Dear Mr. Buffett, exposes the culprits and proposes solutions.
In Archangels: Rise of the Jesuits, she uses her expertise to create a conspiracy-filled fast-moving thriller about a struggle for money and power within the Catholic Church set in the Vatican and Rome.
Ms. Tavakoli is the founder and President of Tavakoli Structured Finance, and frequently interviewed in the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, New York Times, Bloomberg News, and more. She is also an occasional front-page blogger at the Huffington Post. Frequent television appearances include CBS’s 60 Minutes, CNN, and BBC.
