Hailed as “the John
Grisham of Wall Street” by the New York
Times, Christopher Reich returns to the world he knows so well—the
dangerous, dazzling world of high finance and international intrigue. In this
ingeniously crafted thriller, the bestselling author of Numbered Account and The
First Billion introduces his most complex and engaging hero yet: forensic
accountant Adam Chapel—and paints a frightening scenario where terrorism is big
business and money is the ultimate weapon of war…
The explosion that shatters
the smart Parisian apartment reverberates around the globe. In an instant, a
suspected terrorist is dead and half a million dollars has vanished. Within
days, the CIA is certain it has found a connection between the dead man and a
planned terrorist attack on U.S. soil. Determined to avert another 9/11, they
have assembled an elite counterterrorist task force, code name: Blood Money.
Its mission: to follow the money trail. Its secret weapon: forensic accountant
Adam Chapel. A man who trusts numbers more than people, Chapel has his own
reasons for wanting to get the job done—four of his colleagues were killed in
the Paris blast. Now Chapel is thrust back into the line of fire when he teams
up with British intelligence agent Sarah Churchill. The two are assigned to
hunt down a shadowy mastermind who is moving vast sums of money from country to
country, from bank to bank, leaving no tracks—as he prepares for an Armaggedon
of his own devising.
As Chapel follows a
disappearing money trail from Paris to Munich to the deserts of Saudi Arabia,
Sarah uses her elite training to stalk the “shadow” and his elusive network.
Meanwhile, their quarry is auditing their every move, laying a twisting trail
of false clues and shocking surprises. With the clock ticking down, soon Chapel
and Sarah have only days, hours, minutes to avert disaster as a master
terrorist plots to unleash the first strike in a brilliantly orchestrated
conspiracy—with an almost unimaginable goal.
Hurtling us from the
winding alleys of Pakistan to the elite banking houses of Europe, The Devil’s Banker creates an
adrenaline-fueled world where following the money has never been more
dangerous, and evil has never been harder to unmask.
