Nomad on the Run by Georges Benay
I have to say from the first pages I liked this book. I liked the author’s writing style. I loved the storyline and I liked the characters.
The book looks a little unassuming as the cover is pretty plain. The title gave me the impression the book was about a nomad in the desert. Wrong!
The storyline is about a man who leaves his wife in Toronto and returns to the country he was born in, Morocco. He works in a small, private banking firm there and was recruited for this position. His life becomes a whirlwind and he knowns something is wrong. He falls in love and begins secretly dating the bank owner’s daughter. He is asked in the middle of all the troubles to continue recruiting and hiring staff for this small exclusive private bank and to come up with a plan to save the bank while there is an economic crisis going on around the world!
Who is involved? What is going on? Why are there secret meetings? How does the woman fit in? Is she involved? Can Eric trust Valerie?
Are you intrigued yet? I hope so and I believe like me, once you start the book, you get caught up in the storyline.

Lured away from his seemingly idyllic life as a managing director for a major international bank in Toronto, Eric Martin returns to his ancestral roots in Morocco.
Tempted by a mysterious offer from a boutique financial firm, Eric soon discovers he has walked into the middle of a whirlwind where everyone has their own secret agenda, and he unwittingly has become the key to unlocking them all.

Is he a key player in a scheme to terrorize the global economy, or is he just trying to save his firm from becoming another victim of the global economic collapse? Valerie is the unknown factor. Is she involved in the partners’ machinations, or is she as guileless as Eric? Can he trust her? And more importantly, will he survive long enough to find out?
