Overview

They say your personality is set at age seven. This is the year Helen Jenks's father left, the day after millions went missing from the bank where he was a director.
Helen never gave up her belief in her father, the familiar figure, Proustian smells, his classic BMW she now owned with that familiar smell of aftershave on rainy days, but everyone has doubts . . . and everyone doubts her.
Did her heritage drive her to become a major player in the City's dealing rooms, where derivatives players earn millions?
The jungle of the City of London leads to the Machu Picchu trail in Peru, where Helen Jenks's heritage becomes entwined with the world's secret intelligence services and the biggest business of all, cocaine.
Linda Davies takes you from the world's financial centres to the mountains and jungles of Peru, where the old Incas succumbed to the Conquistadores.
And, if you want to know how the City works, read this book.
'A cracking, fast-paced thriller. Excellently researched.
I thoroughly enjoyed it.' General Sir Peter de la Billière.
'Excellent depiction of Peru . . . well handled cliff-hanger ending.'' Daily Express.

Meet the Author

After reading Politics, Philosophy and Economics at Oxford University, Linda Davies worked for seven years as an investment banker, specializing in leveraged buyouts before moving onto the trading floor where she again focused on leveraged products. There she dreamed up the plot to her first globally successful financial thriller, Nest of Vipers. As a full time writer, Linda has written five more books for adults and four books for children. Her most recent thriller, ARk Storm, will be published by Tor Books in 2013.

After leaving investment banking, she lived for three years in Peru, then a stint in London, before she moved with her husband and three children to the Middle East.

In 2005 she and her husband were sailing in the Arabian Gulf when they were kidnapped by Iranian forces. They were held hostage on mainland Iran for two weeks before being released.

After eight happy years living in Dubai, Linda returned to the UK in 2012 where she lives with her family deep in the English countryside.
