"Good Book. A must read for all Gold Investors and those interested in the Global Financial Markets. The beauty of Avery is that he has explained all the concepts that go into the 'price management' of Gold, neatly wrapped in a thriller so as to keep the audience riveted." Pavan Mullapudy - Verified Purchase (Kindle Edition) Amazon.in | Dec. 9, 2016 *****
"Exciting and appealing novel, Ludlam`s style (the author should take this as a huge compliment)... Almost felt ashamed being a banker myself. The author appears to be very well informed of or acquainted with various banking and brokerage activities, both bona and mala fides, as well as with (anti) money laundering operations and regulations. That provides a special touch of genuineness to this story..." Gordana Aleksic | Sep.27, 2016 ****
"This is a good story, mostly well written. No doubt there is more than a grain of truth in the way the 'Great and the good' behave with total ruthlessness. Keeping stacking - if you don't know what that means then you should read this book." Unknown Customer - Verified Purchase (Print Edition) Amazon.co.uk |April 30, 2016 | *****
"...It is not everyday that you find a book like that which is exceptionally well written, moves fast, and grips your attention... I had a hard time putting it down... The forward to the novel includes a detailed summary of all the real-world facts that inspired the author to write it." Marla Merlow | Goodreads.com | May 20, 2016 | *****
"This was a good book. Well written and thoughtful. Good balance of action vs.characterization. Characters are deeper than you will find in most thrillers. Educational. Is it fiction or a true story? This I do not know. But, I do know that this is a book worth reading..."Jackie Martin | Aug 16, 2016 | Goodreads.com *****
From the Author
The world of protagonist Jack Severs is not very different from the world of the average New Yorker --which means it is not so much different than the world of George Orwell's '1984.' "Big Brother", however, is not the government but a handful of huge banks. Most alarming is that unlike in '1984,' most people in both the real world, and in Jack Severs' world, are not even aware of what is going on. The facts are used fictionally, but much of the background material is true to life.
