FuturesBook - 2014
Carol is a small-time cocaine dealer in 1987 London. A single parent to a young daughter, she is a good mother who is especially careful in her work life, introducing herself to customers as "Simone." One of these customers is Phil, a financial analyst in the City who, in the haze of a coke binge, fantasizes with longtime friend and fellow analyst Jack about a cocaine futures market. When the scheme becomes a reality, Carol has an opportunity to go for a big deal that could be her ticket out of the business altogether, but that could also bring her into direct conflict with Gordon Murray and his brothers, the men at the top of the wholesale business who are prepared to do whatever it takes to stay there. Adding to the drama are a stock market crash that creates havoc, and a once-in-a-lifetime hurricane that sweeps across London, jeopardizing the communications system of the stock market itself. Carol is about to find herself at the intersection where three very different worlds are about to collide in this gripping crime novel.
