About the Book

A fascinating account of greed on a gigantic scale, of market manipulation, option swaps and underhandedness, within the financial industry. This is a novel, with a hint of truth, behind the lies. The collapse of financial institutions goes global, as the economic market heads into freefall and insider trading is uncovered. Journalist, Tim Parkes, is to fit the pieces together, after surreptitiously been left clues to uncover. Just who is it, that started it all? As murders from large corporations are exposed, along with the murder of scientists; world leaders in semiconductors and gene manipulation for chemical and germ warfare become known, the financial world goes into a tailspin. With the knowledge of bribery and underhanded deals, Tim goes on a search to find the truth. He’s being targeted and watched and he knows it. He knows he needs to open this can of worms and bring the treachery to the table, before he becomes yet another dead pawn, in somebody’s game. As world-wide lending institutions, succumb to the ravages of global financial collapse, developed through their own unscrupulous activities, more and more people are left to fend for themselves. The collapse of the sub-prime mortgage industry, has left financial institutions to do, or to die. The sub-prime mortgage industry has disintegrated, leaving millions of people destitute in its wake. With lawlessness, disorder, looting and riots a way of life, this is a story, which brings price fixing to the fore, exposing cover-ups, market manipulation and murder. Anarchy raises its ugly head, as Wall Street teeters, before collapsing, while Tim sorts out truth, from lies. Just who is the marionette director? Who is the person pulling the strings in the shadows, the puppet master, in this game of espionage, market manipulation, murder and mayhem? The answer may just surprise you.
