Claridge's Hotel, London|"Since 9/11, no one seems to want my money," Boris Pasarnov said, in an unmistakable Russian accent.|"Which is why our bank is different," nodded his breakfast partner, Ernest Johnston, reassuringly. "We are able to provide services others cannot. After all, since you are one of my most important and innovative clients, it is my job to find solutions to your problems, is it not?" (from the first line)
Jon Phillips is head bond trader at one of Wall Street's largest investment banks and lives the American dream in the heart of New York's decadent banking community. But, after years of selfishness and extravagance, he plans his exit through an unprecedented and ultimately fraudulent deal in the US government bond market. A high-ranking colleague, who sits on the bank's main board, has teamed up with a Russian financier in order to provide Jon an element vital to the success of his ingenious scheme. The deal goes spectacularly wrong and Jon's world collapses. As the Russians desperately attempt to recover their lost millions, Jon is thrown into a deadly game of cat and mouse. From the seedy nightspots of downtown NYC to pastoral aristocratic England to Southern Australia's endless beaches, past lovers, new menaces, and apparently accidental deaths line his trail. Jon's survival now depends on putting the past behind him and becoming the calculated predator instead of vulnerable prey.
Annotation:
Finance industry hot shot Jon Phillips pretty much has it all--a successful career that's landed him at the pinnacle of New York's investment banking community and tons of disposable income. Living this life of acquisition, however, has left his emotional and psychological resources depleted, and he wants out of the rat race. But before he goes, he's got to pull one, final, spectacularly risky and lucrative deal. For his legally questionable trade, he needs capital, and a group of Russian investors appear like clockwork ready with cash. Everything seems in order, and then the deal crumbles in Jon's hand. He's left owing shady characters tons of money, and suddenly Jon is on the run and his life is at stake.
