Overview

Dangerous Zeros
By John Marshall

Mills Millions, billions, trillions, and more: 000,000,000,000,000,000 Bankers and politicians promote the idea that zeros represent real value – a dangerous deception.

With the world struggling to recover from the banking crisis, this powerful thriller taps into the anxieties, the shady processes and the scandals of our age.

Jamie Gulliver, a private banker ruined by the crash, faces threats to his life when he is caught in a murky web of rigged finances, money laundering, and murder.

Ejected from his rich man’s ivory tower, he must fight to rebuild his personal credibility and his sanity, and restore the good name of his family business, Bank Gulliver.

From an unlikely alter ego he learns a simple lesson: in the dramas of life money is never the star, only a prop.

Meet the Author

John Marshall Mills gave up accountancy for radio and television production. He joined BBC tv and became a director and producer of motoring and motorsport programmes featuring, among others, Ferrari, Ford, Porsche and Rolls Royce, combined with Formula One and Sports Car racing from Mexico, Monaco, Le Mans and Indianapolis. His independent film production company, Formula One Films, also covered grand prix events, and as a founder director of CSS Promotions he was involved in the early years of motor sports sponsorship. Devising and producing a wide variety of documentaries, ranging over graphic arts, industrial innovations and recreational travel, for major multi-nationals, he journeyed widely to direct films in the equatorial heat and humidity of Micronesia and ice cold wastes of the Arctic Circle.
Changing direction, he created a children’s animation concept, The Telebugs, and formed an award winning animation production company Telemagination to produce, with BBC and other European Broadcasting Union (EBU) public service broadcasters, classic long-running animation series for young audiences including The Animals of Farthing Wood.
In retirement, John has continued travelling and devoted himself to writing. His first two books, New & You, and Hearing for John, in which he explores his personal experiences of severe deafness, were both self-published with AuthorHouse. Dangerous Zeros is his first full-length novel.
Owning and managing creative companies gave him first-hand experience of backers who tend to see success solely in strings of zeros so favoured by bankers and politicians. With confidence and trust hitting new lows in these financially turbulent early years of the 21st century, he has recognised an opportunity to bring to life a story he had long wanted to tell.
