One day Merchant's Worldwide Bank ceased to exist. Its creditors discovered what its employees had known for some time, that the firm's equity had never existed and that its sole purpose was as a money-laundering centre for organized crime. Now there is nothing left except an empty building in Manhattan, empty desks and thousands and thousands of files being investigated by FBI criminal investigators. But the most incriminating files have disappeared. At first it is thought that the bank's president, Gerard Nassouli, destroyed them, but eight years after the collapse prominent ex-clients MWB begin to receive blackmail notes demanding millions of dollars or some startling secrets will be revealed. Enter investigator John March, whose life has nearly been destroyed by personal tragedy. His task is to follow the thin lines of evidence that may lead back to the monster manipulator behind the blackmail, a person protected by killers and lost in a dark landscape of lies and deceit.
