Cyril Todd is more than ambitious, he is hungry--for success, for prestige, for a stunning lifestyle that is the envy of his friends. Already wealthy and married to a beautiful but enigmatic woman, Todd still longs to be somebody. Spotting an investor's chance of a lifetime, one that could make him independently wealthy, he stakes everything on an impossible risk that could blow up in his face.
From London to Paris, to the lush Mediterranean isle of Majorca, Todd races to fulfill his ambition, matching wits and wiles against a brutal but cunning adversary in a countdown for survival, where greed rules the day and the smallest misstep could mean financial ruin and cold-blooded murder.
