A job he shouldn't have taken... A woman he shouldn't have loved... A secret he shouldn't expose...if he wants to live.

Nick Neumann had it all: a Harvard degree, a beautiful fiancée, a star-making Wall Street career.  But behind the dazzling veneer of this golden boy is a man haunted by the brutal killing of his father seventeen years before.

Now chilling new evidence has implicated his father's employer, the United Swiss Bank, in the crime.  Nick doesn't know how.  Or why.  But he has a plan to find out: move to Zurich.  Work for the same bank.  Follow in his father's footsteps.  Look for the same secrets...and uncover something so shocking, so unexpected, justice may not be enough.

For as a circle of treachery tightens around him, as a woman with secrets of her own enters his life, Nick makes another chilling discovery.  Not just about his father but about himself.  And how far he's willing to go to find out what happened seventeen years before--when a man died and a conspiracy was born.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven | 6/24/2011

    " Christopher Reich created a new sub-genre with the financial thriller (at least in my opinion) by creating some very carefully constructed characters who seem real enough to know. The plot twists weren't expected, and the bad guy was a good one. I hope you give this one a try. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Manugw | 6/15/2011

    " COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER

    At the beginning the story is riveting, however during the second half of the book, there are many twists not too credible at all, "the hero is like superman" figthing thugs, which makes the end somewhat disappointing "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Garrett | 3/27/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stefan | 8/25/2010

    " This book was fun, quick read but suffered from numerous shortfalls. The premise was completely unoriginal, the plot was little more than half-decent, the characters lacked real depth and the dialogue was disappointing. Still, as thrillers go this wasn't too bad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry | 6/3/2010

    " Fine effort for a first novel. If you're interested in international banking, this is informative and paced pretty well. "
