DESCRIPTION :
Seventeen years ago someone murdered Nicholas Neumann's father. As new evidence emerges implicating his father's employer, Zurich's venerable United Swiss Bank, he is willing to do whatever it takes to get to the truth. To infiltrate the bank, Nick, a former US marine and a Harvard Business School graduate, must leave behind a glittering career on Wall Street and a beautiful fiancee. He is quickly plunged into a world where everything - gold, loyalty, power, even life and death - can be bought and sold for the right price. As he sinks deeper into this clandestine world where civility and discretion mask unbridled greed and treachery, where the ultimate crime is disloyalty to the bank, Nick turns to an alluring but dangerous woman with an agenda of her own, and learns that to catch the criminal who murdered his father he must become a criminal himself. And as the bank comes under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration Nick finds himself protecting the one man who may hold the key to his father's murder. As his search intensifies, as the danger increases, as Nick gets closer to the answers, he realizes his own life could be the final sacrifice he has to make. Not since The Day of the Jackal has a thriller so convincingly captured the issues, fears and dilemmas of its day. Written with an insider's knowledge, Numbered Account heralds the arrival of a striking new talent.
