Author: Christopher Reich
Genre: Fiction

Storyline and plot spoiler:

Nicholas Neumann (Nick)
Alex Neumann – Murdered father of Nick
Anna Fontaine – Former fiancee of Nick
Wolfgang Kaiser – Chairman of United Swiss Bank
Sylvia Schon – Director of Personnel and Nick’s love interest
Ali Mevlevi – The Pasha
Sterling Thorne – from US Drug Enforcement
Klaus Konig – Chairman of Adler bank.

A job he shouldn’t have taken… A woman he shouldn’t have loved… An employer he shouldn’t have trusted… A secret he shouldn’t expose…if he wants to live.

Nick Neumann had it all: a Harvard degree, a beautiful fiancée, 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. He comes across his father’s agendas where he learns his father, a banker at United Swiss Bank, was forced to do business with a criminal concern, and for which he was murdered. 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. And look for the same secrets… Wolfgang Kaiser, his father’s former colleague and close friend, is the current chairman of United Swiss Bank.

Around the time Nick joins USB, a rival bank – Adler Bank (run by his father’s former colleague – Klaus Konig), has come up with sudden resources which Konig is using to buy up shares of USB. Nick is put into the private clients section – where his immediate 3 predecessors have been either murdered, fired, or had a nervous breakdon. Nick enters into an affair with Sylvia Schon, the beautiful, brilliant vice president who has her own aspirations of making it to the executive board of USB, and who uses Nick to get in cozy with the chairman. One of the most important clients is someone codenamed The Pasha, whose account number appears in a list of suspected accounts provided by the The United States Drug Enforcement Administration. Nick learns The Pasha is Ali Mevlevi, a multi-billionaire drug dealer and a religious fanatic who is gathering an army for a final armageddon with the jews.

In what comes a full circle, Ali Mevlevi’s is the criminal concern with whom his father was forced to do business and who is responsible for his murder. Ali and Kaiser are in it together, and Nick’s father was murdered to also help Kaiser get to the chairmanship of USB. However the double-crosser is double-crossed as Ali is the one who’s funding the Adler bank to take over USB, so that he can control both for unlimited resources. The circle of treachery tightens when Nick learns of Sylvia’s perfidy. Nick has to call up all his faculties from his former life as a decorated US Marine one final time and avenge his father’s murder, or die watching 15000 people go up in smoke.
