A novel by

Everything comes at a price...

An investment banker with a taste for hookers meets a terrible end at a presentation. In a desperate attempt to run from his embarrassment, he runs to his death.

Another man whose banking practices have destroyed the lives of many falls for a beautiful woman, who ultimately leads him into an ocean of troubles.

JJP is a powerful man, but not powerful enough to outrun his past. When a journalist asks for an interview, he soon finds himself drugged and his body tattooed with reminders of his crimes.

Mark Wilson is a powerful businessman in France, with a devoted secretary named Angelique.

He dies in a plane crash, leaving the financial world in shock.

As journalist Jason Gupta writes up this latest obituary, he starts to see a pattern of powerful men dying sudden, gruesome deaths.

His suspicions are all but confirmed when he receives a text from an anonymous group claiming to be responsible for the deaths.

At first he dismisses it as an internet troll, but when both the messages and the mysterious deaths continue, he starts to take notice.

But when Jason starts to dig deeper, things take a turn for the worse and he's grabbed.

Jason realises that there's far more to this story than he originally thought and it soon becomes clear that when you have enough money, even death isn't permanent.

The Reckoning is a chilling tale of greed, corruption, privilege and death.
