Currency Publisher's Summary

It is said that if you don't know history, you are doomed to repeat it. Currency combines multiple historical strands that converge on the number one issue of our time, the geographic location of economic and military power in the 21st century. Economic Thriller! An incredible story of power, romance, revenge, and international finance spanning three centuries. The issues could not be timelier.

In Currency, Wood has pulled off a first novel that captures the listener with a pause-registering adventure, while it addresses head-on the most pressing and intense global economic, military and political issues of our very challenging current times. Wood's real world experience on both Wall Street and at the center of the US Military Special Operations world, combine with his love of history and command of current global issues, to create a story that is as intense and gripping as it is timely. Currency weaves the historical adventures of our US Founding Fathers who built the country's early economic structure, with current day hero Connor Murray. Connor unexpectedly finds himself thrust into a world shaped as much by greed, betrayal and violence as it by heroism, loyalty, love and the quest for personal peace.

Fate forces Murray to navigate events that play out on the world stage. The United States' current economic weakness collides with its international rival's very real drive for economic, political and military influence. This collision produces an intense drama and adventure that is as scary as it is possible amidst the world's current state of affairs and balance of power. If you love a good adventure story on both the personal and international level; if you're concerned about how the United States’ current economic challenges could play out for the country in a very real way; and if you want to be an early listener of a new author who has tremendous promise - Currency is definitely a must-listen.

    Connor is living in Israel, enjoying the good life, when his world changes in a matter of seconds for good. Will he see Natasha again? What is the world searching for before it's too late? What is the motherland? I'm more excited about this book than any I have written so far. It's a powerful story. Motherland is a hair-raising thrill ride of suspense. The ending is shocking of course; as usual, you won't see it coming.
