Synopses & Reviews
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.
"Chilling detail, suspense and intrigue." The Denver Post
"Reich keeps things moving at breakneck speed." The Wall Street Journal
"Smart and sophisticated....Wonderfully credible." The New York Times
"A sleek, deliriously overscaled wish-fulfillment fantasy perfectly judged to persuade you that all today's favorite enemies...are in bed together with the man who killed your father." Kirkus Reviews
"The novel is definitely a male fantasy....This has almost all the elements of a best seller: murder, exotic locales, high finance, and danger, but there is surprisingly little sex; does the violence substitute?" Library Journal
