Publisher's Summary

The gripping new thriller from the bestselling author of A Death in Sweden.
Max Emerson is rich and powerful: a patron of the arts and the owner of a multinational business. But Max's business is money laundering, and, for the first time in his fortunate life, he's in trouble.
Hackers are targeting his company. The FBI is pressuring him to betray one of his crooked clients. A dark secret from his own past looks in danger of resurfacing. When his parents are killed in a tragic accident, the whole world Max has built for himself seems to be on the brink of collapse.
Just as he's drawn back into the heart of his estranged family, he receives a letter from beyond the grave - a letter that turns everything he thought he knew on its head...

Please, More Max Emerson

This excellent story about the awakening of a complex, often pragmatic financial entrepreneur offers a tinge of mystery while settling old scores. Moreover, the supporting characters offer a lot of potential as does the main character, Max Emerson. Accordingly, I hope Kevin Wignall will let us see more of Max.

If you want hardcore action from a spy, hard-boiled detective or a Jack-Reacher type, this isn't the right character or story. However, if international settings and clever maneuvering by a poised, bright and sometimes tough guy peaks your interest, A Fragile Thing will deliver. Finally, Scott Merriman delivers an excellent performance as a narrator.

A fragment I left thing

A very good book. A big surprise that I never expected with Maxs mother. Max found out that his parents were very proud where as his brother thought he was in criminal activity.
