From the Inside Flap:

Thomas Clayton is a City trader working the markets in London’s Square Mile and living the high life. But when he returns home to New York for his father’s funeral to discover he has been left nearly $50 million in a numbered Swiss bank account, he’s at a complete loss to explain how his Professor father could have come by such a sum. Whatever the explanation, the mysterious windfall has come at exactly the right time. Truth is Tom has to make good huge losses from insider trading – and fast.

So he travels to Zurich, secures the funds, and tells his wife to offer on her dream country mansion. What Tom doesn’t know yet is that his father was being used as a ‘ghost’ to clean up dirty money by a New York laundry operation: really the money belongs to Carlos Morales, Medellin’s biggest cocaine baron.

Tom’s actions in Europe spark a murderous turf war in the Americas between the cartels of Medellin and Cali, involving a cast of bent lawyers, cops, undercover DEA – and transatlantic assassins who’ll stop at nothing or no-one to make Tom pay his debt...
