In fact, just right for the job.At top investment bank Bloomfield Weiss, they taught them to be winners, predators, killer deal-makers.On the banks training programme in New York, Chris and Lenka had become part of a close-knit gang of ambitious trainees, working and playing hard. But when a failed affair sparked a confrontation during a drunken boat-trip, one of the gang died, leaving the rest to cover up the truth of the tragedy.Ten years later a helpless Chris watches Lenka’s lifeblood soak into the snow of a Prague street – and his world falls apart.With his friend and business partner dead, Chris not only has to fight to keep his company afloat in the face of nervous investors, but must also discover who is behind Lenka’s seemingly random – but coolly professional – murder.Then others are killed, and it looks like Chris could be next.Now it seems that their shared past might contain an even more sinister secret than Chris had thought. And that someone from the training programme took their lessons rather too seriously.Michael Ridpath has written eight bestselling financial thrillers, published in over 30 countries.PRAISE FOR MICHAEL RIDPATH’S FINANCIAL THRILLERS:“Ridpath has that read-on factor that sets bestsellers apart.” - The Guardian“It is the authors insight into the complexities of the business that gives his novel so much life.
