From San Francisco to London to Kiev, investigator Graham Gage is in a race against the FBI and Ukraine gangsters to solve an intricate stock swindle and arms deal in time to clear his friend’s name. Gage peels away the layers of the collapse of SatTek Industries in San Jose to find a plot that morphs into something bigger, something that will put the American military in the Middle East at risk. Weaving a carefully-layered tale of greed, money laundering, and European politics, author Steven Gore takes us, with wonderful dialogue and local description to London, Geneva, the Channel Islands, and finally - featuring 2 fabulous Ukrainian gangster characters - Kiev. A great cast of characters throughout the book, and a great twist at the end too!
“Drawing on his expertise as a private investigator, Gore has written an exciting debut thriller that will both educate and entertain the reader. With his command of storytelling and insider's knowledge, Gore can go up against Nelson DeMille and Daniel Silva and come out a contender.” —Library Journal starred review
“Gore, a former Bay Area private investigator, knows how to tell a compelling story….” –Publishers Weekly
“To save a beset friend, a San Francisco p.i. takes on American law enforcement, international capitalism and thugs from just about anywhere in Gore's accomplished debut….Gore has a deft way with one-liners, and in Gage, who views the world through eyes as cool as Sam Spade's, he has a keeper.” —Kirkus Reviews
“First-novelist Gore, calling on his own experiences as a PI, creates in Gage an appealing protagonist who does what he has to do, saying “If they ever get us, it’ll only be for something we didn’t do.” First-rate action, tempered with humanity.” — Booklist
