Tempted by a mysterious offer from a boutique financial firm, Eric soon discovers he has walked into the middle of a whirlwind where everyone has their own secret agenda, and he unwittingly has become the key to unlocking them all. From the broad avenues of Toronto to the mean streets of Casablanca, Eric rushes to discover the truth before time runs out. But who can he trust?
The power and attraction of money is strong. In the midst of a dangerous cast of characters, Jeff Offenbach, bank president, knows more than he lets on. But how much does he know? Is he a key player in a scheme to terrorize the global economy, or is he just trying to save his firm from becoming another victim of the global economic collapse? Valerie is the unknown factor. Is she involved in the partners' machinations, or is she as guileless as Eric? Can he trust her? And more importantly, will he survive long enough to find out?
This is a very well-written thriller with a complex, sophisticated, creative plot. The author successfully builds the suspense and maintains the feeling that something sinister is imminent.
Eric Martin, a successful, if somewhat disillusioned bank director in Toronto, Canada, accepts a mysterious offer from a financial house in Morocco - "like a nomad in the desert, he heard the wind whisper in his ear of exotic places, new adventures, and a new life." Upon taking up his new post in Morocco, however, Eric quickly realizes that he has stepped into a situation where dangerous, greedy people dominate and where terrorism raises its ugly head. Who is El-Anouyi? Eric has cunning, calculating businessmen to deal with who are not what they seem.
The character development is first rate. Eric is a smart, savvy businessman, but not really a likeable character, although I have to admit that he grew on me by the end of the book.
The use of French words and phrases adds authenticity to the story as do the descriptions of Casablanca and its inhabitants.
There are a few expletives throughout the book and a brief sexual situation, but nothing at all explicit.
This is an exciting read for those interested in international intrigue, complex financial wheeling and dealing and terrorism. It's like reading the news.
