From the Inside Flap:

British brokerage firm Dekker Ward created and currently dominate the turbulent market in Latin American bonds. Their economic stranglehold is enforced by aggressive trading and smart decisions by Ricardo Ross, their most successful trader, better known as the Marketmaker. For disgruntled academic Nick Elliott, a job with Dekker's is his ticket to finally being able to carry his mortgage, and he is content to ride his luck as the new boy--until strange things start happening to Dekker employees. One top trader is fired, another dies in a bungled robbery. Nick falls for his colleague Isabel, and soon after she is kidnapped. Just what sort of business is he really involved in? And has he left it too late to run away?
