A financial thriller that will keep listeners on the edge of their seats Esther Harding, a leading risk analyst at one of the country's largest banking institutions, is becoming more and more convinced that she has uncovered a ticking bomb with the potential to overshadow 2008's market crash. And as her own employer pursues "investment" strategies with ever-increasing levels of risk, she becomes convinced she must do something. Yet what can one person really do? The markets are edging closer to a tipping point--like the teetering first domino in a standing row that circles the globe. And when Esther does sound the alarm, she wonders if anyone will take her seriously. But as public support grows for her ideas, so does the desperation of those whose conspiracy of greed she seeks to expose. With global markets on the brink, and her own life in danger, Esther is locked in a race with the clock to avert a worldwide financial meltdown. This fast-paced suspense novel will make you wonder where the fiction ends and reality begins. . . .
- A must-read, even if you don't have a clue about the financial world!
My wife and I have just returned from a holiday in the English Lake District. We took this book to listen to on the journeys. It is brilliant. You must listen to it. Davis Bunn has evidently done loads of research to enable him to understand the world financial markets - and the dangers posted by banks out of control. We couldn't wait to listen to the next chapter!
This was an awesome book. I actually looked forward to the gym so I could listen to some more.
- Original, Intense, Disturbing
In this fast paced page-turner, Bunn delivers an intense economic thriller that is genuinely disturbing in its realistic depiction of current banking laws and recent market trends. The implications are staggering.
Narration was excellent!
