Publisher's Summary

In this thriller about the dazzling world of high finance and international intrigue, Christopher Reich introduces a new hero, forensic accountant Adam Chapel, whose simple task is to save the world from the ultimate weapon of war - money. When an explosion shatters a Parisian apartment, killing a suspected terrorist and four of Chapel's colleagues, half a million dollars go missing - and the CIA believes it has found a link to a planned terrorist attack on U.S. soil. Now an elite counterterrorist force led by Chapel and British intelligence officer Sarah Churchill must hunt down a shadowy mastermind who is moving vast sums of money from country to country and bank to bank, leaving no tracks - as he plans for an almost unimaginable Armageddon.

Critic Reviews

"This smart, fast-paced read shuttles between Wall Street finance and the Eastern paperless hawala banking system - and makes both sound surprisingly cool." (Entertainment Weekly)

An ACCOUNTANT as HERO??!! You Bet!!!

This is a good read on several levels: A look inside the shadowy world of the 'hawala' money system that leaves no paper trail. A fiendish plot. An unlikely hero...and several juicy twists that keep you interested. I am pleased that the spy genre did not die with the demise of the cold war!!

Better than Patriot's Club

Once in a while you come across an audio book that keeps you up at night because of the great writing and plot. This book teaches the reader about cultural differences between how the Westerner looks at life versus how terrorists see things.

People turn out to not be who you first think they are. Loyalties are hidden until the end and subtlely revealed.

Reich makes you wonder if the cultural differences can ever be breached. As the characters travel through Europe chasing down money trail leads, time is running out. Unless forensic account Alan Chappel and agent Sara Churchill can detect where the money trail ends and who is ultimately behind things, a disaster of immense proportions will ensue.

Went and purchased all the rest of the Christopher Reich titles after this one and am hoping that audible soon adds all titles for download.
