Publisher's Summary

A chilling examination of how far we will go to survive and the consequences of the choices we make.

He will earn his own ransom by helping his captors manipulate and master the world commodities and currency markets.

Takes you into two fascinating worlds

Takes you into the world of financial instruments and trading and also into the world of political Pakistan. The characters are engaging and well worth spending time with.
