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 fiancee, 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.
