The Financial Terrorist

by

The sequel to One Step to Danger, this exciting thriller highlights the threats we face from banks, especially when they are in the hands of the unscrupulous. Financial crime is vicious, uncompromising and immoral; not that different from the challenge 'The Financial Terrorist', Charles Rossi and his wife Jacqui face from the world of organised crime.

Financial terrorism is now the name of the game. And Charles and Jacqui Rossi are no novices. They use their ownership of the highly regarded International Bank of Europe to launch a series of incredible attacks on markets all over the world.

They use banks to channel fraudulent products to the unsuspecting wider public. They use insider dealing to falsify share prices. They use markets to build up huge and speculative positions, spreading false rumours to achieve their ends. And they use murder to eliminate anyone who comes between them and their ambition to be the most powerful people in their world.

But they have fierce opposition, primarily in the form of Jacqui’s father, a Mafia don. He is at home in the world of “old crime” – drugs, prostitution and protection rackets. He wants to continue heading the leading Mafia family in America, but, for that, he needs the help of Charles and Jacqui.

And, when he can’t get it, their two worlds clash – financial crime against a Mafia which will stop at nothing to achieve its objectives and will destroy anyone who opposes its plans. But it is up against unlimited money and that can be as ruthless a weapon as anything the Mafia have in their arsenal.

Even the most trusted government officials are seduced by the wealth on offer. Regulators are powerless and the law is irrelevant as the bankers have the best, and the most unscrupulous, lawyers on their side.

Much of the fiction in John Gubert’s first novel, One Step To Danger, became a reality. It is just a matter of time before the same happens to The Financial Terrorist.

"One Step To Danger" is a work of fiction, which, with hindsight, could have been fact. Speculation and worse by the criminals in suits leads to major meltdowns in world markets and more. The sequel, "The Financial Terrorist" shows the ease with which corrupt bankers can manipulate world markets. And the terrorist banker does not stop at that, as in a fast moving and thrilling story, he plays on the greed, corruption and gullibility of many of his fellow financiers.
