About this title


<p>Samuel Spendlove has given up his cosy career in academia to work undercover for William Barton, owner of a massive media empire. &nbsp;He finds that he gets a thrill out of working for the legendary market trader Khan and his Ropner&#x2019;s Bank, a power institution whose dealings have been known to bring nations to their knees. Barton wants information about Khan so that he can find revenge over a man who once bested him. Spendlove enjoys both sides of this game until it all unravels and he finds himself simultaneously accused of almost bringing down the global economy and of the murder of Kaz Day, a glamorous colleague on the trading floor. He goes into hiding in the surreal and dangerous world of underground Paris. As he is chased by the police, Khan, the bank , and William Barton, he must quickly determine who framed him and why.</p>

From the Back Cover:

<p>&#x2018;He could feel the surge of excitement, the thrill of power shooting through his veins. Now he was really trading. He was the lightning conductor for all the rich, concentrated vitality of the market, and he could direct it where he liked. He was harnessing all the might of the bank&#x2019;s assets and he was about to muscle a gigantic global market his way. It was as though he could wrap up every floor, every screen, every trader in the world into one huge football and then volley it out into space, booted there by the leverage of his billion-dollar book.</p><p>Out in the street, the hurly-burly was just the same &#x2013; pedestrian bustle, traffic noise, the same, tired old urban pantomime. Yet, the world was about to change radically. Billions of people would be affected. Most would become poorer, but he would make some &#x2013; a few, a very select few &#x2013; immensely richer.&#x2019;</p>
