Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
This clever mix of politics, morality and high-tech suspense makes for a riveting thriller.... Bottom line: Bunn has crafted an intelligent, fast-moving novel about hedge funds; and if a writer can do that, he can do just about anything.
Kirkus Reviews
Financial thriller about a shadowy cabal of bankers who plot an assault on America's monetary system. Just another cashed-out high-tech millionaire with too much time on his hands and more ambition than he knows what to do with, Wynn Bryant long ago promised his older sister, Sybel, that he would give her "anything "she wanted for her birthday each year. Since Sybel is deeply involved with an ecumenical group called Sant'Egidio, these birthday gifts have often involved help for the poor. But this year, Sybel makes a different request: Wynn must go to her husband, Grant, who happens to be the governor of Florida, and do whatever he says. Wynn subsequently agrees to run for a seat in the House of Representatives-a seat just opened since its current occupant is in a coma-with one mission from Grant: vote against the upcoming Jubilee Amendment, a bill that would relieve Third World countries of their financial debts to the US. Meanwhile, a group of politicians aligned with Sant'Egidio has enlisted Jackie Havilland, a rudderless employee at an Orlando detective agency, to investigate the actions of an immensely powerful hedge-fund banker, Pavel Hayek, who is part of a movement dedicated to the defeat of the Jubilee Amendment. Wynn and Jackie slowly become privy to a Ludlum-esque world-destroyer of a conspiracy: an operation called Tsunami, in which some immensely wealthy financiers use the shady but very legal practice of hedge-fund-trading to knock out the foundation of the American dollar and make a killing in the panic that's sure to follow. While he's at it, the author makes a few thoughtful points about the darkly immoral consequences of today's deregulated internationalbanking bazaars and provides an excellent setup ... ... but fails to follow through. Bunn ("The Great Divide", 2000, etc.) aims for a higher purpose than you're likely to find in most thrillers. Still, this one's mix of heavily technical detail and strong characters (a la David Lindsey) doesn't save it from ultimately falling flat..

    Gripping, unsettling political thriller!

    This political thriller quickly catches your attention and builds to a powerful conclusion! The author's remarkable credentials lend credence to the storyline, and you can't help but wonder whether the book's premise is not merely unsettling, but prophetic. Kept my attention from first page to last, and the characters are excellent.

    A gripping political thriller

    Successful businessman Wynn Bryant is approached by his brother-in-law, the governor of Florida, to take over the position of congressman Hutchings, who has recently suffered a stroke. Wynn refuses, but quickly learns he has no choice, and the reason becomes clear¿Legislation has recently put together the Jubilee Amendment which is to relieve Third World countries of their debt, and the governor was this squashed, no matter what the cost. Jackie Havilland is working for a small detective agency when she is approached with a mysterious and unusual request¿Esther Hutchings wants Jackie to find out who is behind the smear campaign of her husband, and make sure the Jubilee Amendment is passed. As Jackie and Wynn become deeper involved in their assignments they realize there is a far reaching conspiracy, one that involves a secret project called Tsunami. Tsunami is the biggest currency scam in history, one that congressman Hutchings was investigating before his stroke. Before long Jackie and Wynn are faced with a deadly race against time with powerful forces. Forces that will kill anyone that gets in the way of their plan to reshape world economy. `Drummer In The Dark¿ is a great follow-up to the best-selling `The Great Divide.¿ T. Davis Bunn has switched gears, and instead of giving us another legal thriller, he has given a fast-paced political thriller laced with intrigue. The plot, while complex, is well written, and easy to follow, with plot twists at every turn, and enough shocks to keep you turning the pages. T. Davis Bunn is quickly jumping into the forefront of thriller writers, and proving he is a skilled storyteller with a knack for churning out bestsellers. Nick Gonnella
