A thriller set in the world of high finance.

Someone murdered Nick Neumann's father.Now, seventeen years later, new evidence emerges implicating his father's employer, Zurich's venerable United Swiss Bank.

Nick is willing to do whatever it takes to find his father's killer - even if it means abandoning a glittering career on Wall Street and a beautiful fiancee.And when he infiltrates the bank in his search for the truth, he finds himself plunged into a world where everything - gold, power, even life and death - has its price. Sinking ever deeper into this clandestine world of unbridled greed and treachery, Nick turns to an alluring but dangerous woman with an agenda of her own, and soon learns that in order to catch his father's murderer he, too, must become a criminal.

As the bank comes under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Nick finds himself protecting the one man who may hold the key to the truth - the key to his father's murder. And as his search intensifies, as Nick gets closer to the answers, he must face the fact that his own life could be the final sacrifice he has to make.
