Lovereading view...

June 2013 Debut of the Month.

This fast-paced financial thriller has it all: blackmail, murder, corruption, glamour and greed all wrapped into a very contemporary plot. Entrepreneur Nick Adams gets coerced into working for a US agency hellbent on bringing to justice two hugely wealthy tycoons with highly questionable business morals. Unsurprisingly, for Nick, this is not a safe place to find yourself... Self-published by the author whose first hand knowledge of the sometimes murky world of corporate finance brings a very realistic edge to the whole book.
