Publisher's Summary

A chilling examination of how far we will go to survive and the consequences of the choices we make.

In remote Pakistan, Nick Bright awaits his fate. A successful financial trader, Nick is kidnapped by an Islamic militant group, but with no one negotiating his release, he agrees to an unusual plan. He will earn his own ransom by helping his captors manipulate and master the world commodities and currency markets.

"The prime theme is pulsing and alive: when human lives become just one more commodity to be traded, blood eventually flows in the streets." ( Financial Times)
