Bank Boardroom Intrigue!

Having worked in a bank most of my career it is interesting to see what goes on in the Chairman's office where all the big decisions are made. Also, being familiar with money laundering and other rules that banks must follow regarding cash transfers, made a lot of what happens very familiar to me in real life.

Nick Neumann is the main character. Half Swedish, he first works on Wall St. and then transfers to a Swedish bank so he can investigate his father's death. He gets put in charge of an account where huge sums of money go in and out and he is not allowed to ask any questions about the account. Just follow the transfer instructions.

Nick's character is very complex, having served in the marines on a dangerous mission and working on Wall St. He gets partnered with an interesting female who happens to be the recruiter for the bank. The suspense seems to grab you as all kinds of shady things are going on at the bank and Nick is forced to choose between loyalty and what is legal.

I just started this book yesterday and I am already to page 250 which is a lot for me. The book is very difficult to put down. I highly recommend it!
