Fast-paced, perceptive and oh so very, very clever this is an amazing must-read financial thriller which is totally mind blowing! Rob Tanner is Chief Operating Officer in a major UK bank. On Christmas Eve he receives a red flag phone call from the bank’s Chief Risk Officer confirming a thousand of the bank’s accounts have inexplicably increased exactly ten fold in the past twenty fours hours. On the same day Martin Kellet, the highly unpopular Chief Executive Officer, receives an enigmatic email from Joen van Aken referring to the inflated bank accounts. Tanner learns that Joen van Aken is the birth name of Hieronymus Bosch, the medieval Dutch painter whose best known work is The Garden of Earthly Delights famous for portraying the seven deadly sins. More inflated banking errors occur, and more banks become affected resulting in frantic assembling of COBRA meetings in Whitehall. A leading US security expert is appointed and the race is on to try to decipher the coding behind the cyber attack before bank accounts are destroyed and financial markets collapse. Tanner, and the Prime Minister James Allen receive further emails from Joen van Aken, all of which contain references to the seven deadly sins as highlighted in the Bosch masterpiece. The intention behind the attacks is mysteriously hidden within cryptic biblical and musical references as Joen van Aken teases and taunts Tanner and Allen. London is not only in the grip of a winter snow-storm, but also in the grip of the most sophisticated cyber attack ever experienced. Tense, thought-provoking and extremely skilful, this inaugural novel from Simon Hayes is just exquisite. If you enjoy a great thriller look no further – they don’t come much better than this!
