David Tyler’s profession has already cost him his marriage and his self-respect. Now a global business conspiracy could cost him his life.
In London, an accountant asks too many questions about a multi-million dollar contract. In New York, a ruthless executive conspires to take control of a global professional firm. In Moscow, criminals plot a money-laundering scam. The fallout engulfs management consultant David Tyler.
David’s job has already wrecked his marriage and destroyed his illusions. When events put his career on the line, he must choose between his principles and his ambitions.
Ditched by his girlfriend and shunned by colleagues, David wrestles with his own shortcomings and his partners’ duplicity. Alone, he finds unexpected help from his ex-wife Rosalind and her father. Together they unravel the conspiracy that entraps him. The trail leads into a business underworld where the truth is deadlier than he bargains for.
Facing torture and death, David runs for his life. His dilemma now is how to defeat his pursuers and retrieve his reputation without scandal bringing down the entire firm. His relationship with Rosalind may have another chance too, if he can avoid repeating past mistakes.
On the battlefield of life, he realises, there are no neat, happy endings. There are only new beginnings. And conflicts of interest.
