Money only keeps the score. Whoever has the most when they die, wins
Set in the heart of global finance, the Kindle #1 bestselling financial thriller Shadow Banking follows City hopefuls as they wheel, deal and back stab their way to billions. Remember: life's a trade...
It is 1994. The City is on the crest of a wave.
When Al Denham turns up to his first day at City banking giant Trenchart Colville, he thinks he's there to start a job. But in fact he's at the beginning of a journey that will change his life for ever.
Al is joined by a ragtag combination of the brash and the charming, the box-tickers and the risk-takers. There's razor-sharp New Yorker, Miles Ratner, an enigma despite his infectious charm. Fergal Quinn, fresh from his father's Dublin fishmonger's with a punchline for every story. And Imogen Green - beautiful, well-connected, and with a playful side that can prove quite the distraction. As they race to get ahead, their lives will entwine in ways none of them could have predicted.
Spanning turbulent markets and the financial crisis that brought the West to its knees, this is a gripping story about friendship, love, rivalry, betrayal, murder - and billions. This Life meets The Wolf of Wall St, Shadow Banking will make you question everything you think you know about trading floors and the people who inhabit them.
In the end it all comes down to one thing: money. And whoever has the most when they die, wins...
