"When he dies, Professor Michael Clayton leaves son Tom the balances of his bank accounts. Nothing unusual there that is until Tom discovers one is a numbered Swiss account containing nearly $50 million. Tom Clayton is a top trader in London's square mile so with insider knowledge and huge losses from insider trading to make up he travels to Zurich, secures the funds, and tells his wife to offer on her dream country mansion. What Tom doesn't know yet is that his father was being used as a 'ghost' to clean up dirty money by a New York laundry operation: really the cash belongs to Angel Morales, Medellin's biggest cocaine baron. When cartel and their shadowy bank find out, a murderous turf war is sparked between the cartels of Cali and Medellin, involving a cast of bent lawyers, cops, undercover DEA - and transatlantic assassins who'll stop at nothing or no-one to make Tom Clayton pay his debt. The Clayton Account is an exhilarating international thriller, part Robert Ludlum part Clear and Present Danger, in which one man's loss is very much another man's gain
