Book Description:

Eric Martin is desperate to forget his past, one that almost cost him his future.

Working in Paris as deputy head of a bank’s internal security department, Eric notices a high-speed trader’s uncanny ability to predict extremely profitable trades. Even though there’s nothing illegal about the activity, he knows the trader’s success is more than just luck.

But, no one believes him. Armed only with a handful of data and a powerful instinct, Eric searches for the mysterious trader on his own. He suspects that a predictive algorithm has fallen into the wrong hands.

Eric sets off for Istanbul to find answers promised to him by an informant. He finds an unlikely ally in Interpol agent Stephanie Brule. With Interpol wanting him back in Paris and out of the way, Eric’s quest is also hampered by the sudden appearance of his ex-lover, a boss he’s not sure he can trust, and a terrorist who always seems one step ahead.

Will Eric put an end, once and for all, to the nightmare that began when he accepted a job that was too good to be true? Or will his need for revenge and justice lead him deeper into a treacherous world he has no way of escaping?

Book Review: Nomad on the Run by Georges Benay

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.

Tour dates: August 14 to Sept 15, 2017. ​Beneath the golden desert and azure seas of Morocco lurks a hidden world of greed, deceit and financial terrorism. But the players are not who you might think. 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. From the broad avenues of Toronto to the mean streets of Casablanca, Eric rushes to discover the truth before time runs out. But who can he trust?

The power and attraction of money is strong. In the midst of a dangerous cast of characters, Jeff Offenbach, bank president, knows more than he lets on. But how much does he know? 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?
