Michael Ridpath's financial thrillers have regularly hit the Sunday Times bestseller lists and been translated in over 30 languages. Greed, ambition, the desire to win, the euphoria and despair of making and losing millions, the courage to do the right thing when you might lose your job, or even your life. These are all elements of Ridpath's fast-paced thrillers set in a financial jungle shrouded in mists of grey, where you don't know who is good, who is bad and who is something imbetween. You won't be able to put them down.

Here are three of his best:

Virtual reality is the technology of the future, and Mark Fairfax's brother Richard runs the leading company in the field worldwide. He has also been murdered.

Struggling to keep the business in the black, and with corporate predators closing in, Mark must learn fast and trust no one.

Ricardo Ross is The Marketmaker, the king of the Latin American bond market.

Disenchanted academic Nick Elliot knows that he may be selling his soul when he joins Ricardo Ross at Ross's investment bank, but Nick needs the money. On Nick's first business trip to Rio, he soon discovers you are either with The Marketmaker, or you have made an enemy for life.

In the dotcom boom it was easy to make millions ... and then lose them. And some people are not good losers.

The year is 1999 and Internet companies are springing up everywhere. Anything seems possible for those who think big. David Lane - a quiet, cautious banker - is invited by his old friend to help start up football website He decides that for once he will do something daring, something dangerous. If only he'd realized quite how dangerous the dotcom bubble could be.

"Ridpath has that read-on factor that sets bestsellers apart." - The Guardian

"It is the author's insight into the complexities of the business that gives his novel so much life. And he can write... Yes, he has a winner here." - The New York Times

"It'll send a shiver down bankers' spines." - Mirror

"The author makes you feel the intensity of the trading floor, the combination of number-crunching and gut instinct that leads people to take big risks, the thrill of playing a hunch and getting it right." - Los Angeles Times Book Review

"For sheer entertainment, there's nothing in the mystery genre to beat a well-constructed thriller... ... the new book of Michael Ridpath provides a master-class in how it's done. I read it in one gulp." - The Observer

"As slick and compulsive a piece of storytelling as can be found in the best of blockbuster fiction." - Sunday Express.

"Ridpath has the rare gift of being able to write clearly and simply about the corporate world in a way that suggests he actually wants the reader to understand it."- The Times

"The change of plot is superb, but the suspense is something else. The book is also very easy to read by non-banking-related people, who want to see what this so-called hotshot profession is about. 5 stars." - Kindle Reviewer
