About the Author
These days I live in the middle of nowhere, raising children, chopping wood and fending off herds of rapacious country-beasts, but I used to be a Master of the Universe in the Big City, buying and selling and securitising and generally raising hell. I write what I want, when I want to (which by coincidence is when my wife and children choose to let me write), and at the moment that tends to be fiction about bankers and blackmailers, murders, post-apocalyptic conspirators, all the usual stuff.

The beginning of the book was filled with so many details: banking terms, deals and characters floating in and out, and office politics. It was a lot to take in. I either knew or had heard some of the jargon before but wasn't about to flip back and forth to the glossary in the back and didn't actually need to do so. It really doesn't matter exactly what these things are in the overall scheme of things. What matters is the basic plot and the main characters.
Office politics are something anyone can relate to, regardless of having experience in the banking industry, just so long as you've had any sort of job in business where you're surrounded with sniveling yes-men, gossipers, people spending more time drifting from office to office to get the scoop than in front of the computer, the hard workers, the risk-takers and even the underhanded. And yes, there are the underhanded in this book, plenty of them!
As it turns out, all those details really help to shape the story, and underneath them all is a quite a plot. The book is enjoyable, well-crafted, highly intelligent and is hard to put down the deeper you get into it.
Quite a story, quite a writer.
Scheming,trickery; and treachery. With a good cast and surprising twist at the end.
I gave this book a four star, only i thought in places it got a little long winded.
And it took a while to realise the book was alternating between past and present. Overall thouroughly enjoyed this book, would buy again!
