Short Change (2000)

Lisa's high-flying brother, John, suggests that she turn her job-seeking attentions to banking, getting her an interview with the London branch of the Japanese Haru bank. When Lisa's cheeky, don't-really-care attitude actually scores her a post as a trainee dealer, she can't believe her good fortunes. But life on the trading floor is far from easy, especially for a woman who is several inches under 5 feet tall. No one seems willing to show her the ropes, and many of her colleagues go out of their way to undermine her. But soon Lisa is relishing her competitive job and isn't going to be short changed by anyone. With the author herself having worked for a Japanese bank, you feel ensured that you are getting a true glimpse into the wheeling and dealing involved in the money markets.
