Money is the root of all evil. There are times when ordinary people are driven to do extraordinary things. That time has come for Tommy Burton, a London-based financial journalist. After witnessing a murder, he begins to question the official version of events and is drawn into a dangerous investigation to catch a killer. As he delves further into the murky underbelly of the City and the secretive Lethe Fund, Tommy begins to unravel a financial conspiracy that reaches the top echelons of government across three continents. The investigation becomes a knife-edge game of cat and mouse as he draws closer to a truth that powerful people are willing to kill for to keep secret, and falls deeper into the dark side of global finance, where money blurs morals.
