From Publishers Weekly
Former London merchant banker Davies's first novel is a financial thriller about a female currency trader caught between the Mafia and Britain's Secret Intelligence Service.
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.
From Library Journal
Davies's first novel is a taut financial thriller. Sarah Jensen, an intelligent and beautiful woman haunted by a tragic childhood, is a top-notch trader in London's male-dominated financial world. The governor of the Bank of England recruits her to spy on ICB, a profitable merchant bank. Sarah's mission is to expose fraudulent trading, but what she uncovers is far more dangerous: an international insider trading ring involving high-ranking officials and controlled by the Mafia. With the help of her friends, Jacob and Mosami, she bugs the offices of ICB. After the murder of Mosami and Dante, Sarah's boss-turned-lover, Sarah and Jacob flee to Morocco. Not sure whom to trust, they send evidence to the London Times, hoping to blow the ring wide open. This fast-paced and exciting novel captures the tension and adrenaline of international finance. Recommended for fiction collections.

John Christmas, author of "Democracy Society"
Discovering some fraudulent trading she is then recruited by the intelligence agencies to help untangle the corruption.
The real strength of this book lies in the detail of the background with the crazy world of these brokers revealed and all their risky transactions with enormous sums bought and sold in seconds. There is plenty of tension in Sarah's normal life, and she doesn't need the stress of multinational fraudsters and spies. Sarah doesn't have time for a personal life and while we don't see much male bias against women, it's clear that women are in a tiny minority in this business. This story was written before rogue trader Nick Leeson was uncovered so we can hope that better safeguards have been put in place.
