An international thriller based on one of the bigest bank heists in history.

Billions of dollars are missing from Iraqi banks, and journalist Luca Terracini will risk everything to discover where it is. His Iraqi-American background has made it easier for him to infiltrate the darkest corners of the war, but death of his beloved Nicola in a suicide bombing has made him reckless. He has nothing left to lose.

In pursuit of the money, he meets UN representative Daniela Garner, who seems to know more about the heist than anyone else. She's a valuable asset in Baghdad where the possibility of an explosion lurks at every checkpoint. Luca's investigation proves volatile as well, and as he gets closer to the missing money, his actions begin to reverberate around the world.

In London, Richard North, a top-tier international banker and the one person who might be able to explain where the money has gone, vanishes. The manhunt for him will get Luca evicted from Iraq, separated from Daniela, and possibly end both his investigation and his life.

As usual, it's all about the money: who has it, who's lost it, and who's ultimately going to pay, as clandestine agents emerge from the shadows and powerful nations seek to control information and bury secrets, whatever the cost.

pretty good story but pace was a somewhat slow - could have been shortened by a100 pages.

Engrossing read full of interesting characters. It starts out with several different plot lines of people with seemingly unconnected lives in different countries but slowly, these people are all drawn together as dangerous situations ( and the body count) increase. It's hard to put down as you have to know how it all ends up & who survives.

BIG disappointment after "Shattered". Flimsy plot with undeveloped characters.
The dust cover says "A thriller' - its not.
