Review by StuartAston
This is one of those series of books you can see running on and on in some format. Reminds me of the books written by Colin Forbes - one of those books you can really enjoy yourself with as you know the good guys will win.This book follows Cotton Malone and Henrik Thorvaldsen following The Paris Club as they try to find what there plans are to make the millions they say they can gain for the rich and elite who join the group. However the fly in the ointment is that one of the group killed Hendriks son. With this in his mind the internal stuggle is do you get revenge or find out what is planned and help the greater good?
