"When it comes to the financial thriller, no author comes close to...Paul Erdman, who is always on the cutting edge and always terrifying...Erdman offers up a dandy plot, with interesting characters...His descriptions of financial dealings, computer transfers, paper trails and the like are as scary as a Stephen King thriller or the daily front page." --San Francisco Examiner "There is action aplenty and some satisfying vengeful twists." --The Orlando Sentinel "Still in fine form, old pro Erdman produces another larky fiscal thriller...Capital entertainment for Erdman's many fans...An always-absorbing story." --Kirkus Reviews "Among financial thriller writers, Erdman rules not only as the first but also as the most adept at demystifying both the secrets of money and the minds of those who know those secrets...readers partial to monetary mayhem will find this a satisfying way to spend, or even invest, a few hours of their time." --Publishers Weekly "Erdman is a master at using his expertise in international finance to create a tale of high risk and edge-of-the-chair suspense...the plot is intriguing." --Library JournalAbout the Author:
