Description

In his father's will, Thomas Clayton, a banker of Irish-American stock, living and working in London, is left the balances of his accounts. Nothing unusual - but then Tom discovers one is a numbered account at a Swiss bank containing o50 million. Using his insider knowledge - and needing to make good huge losses from insider trading - Tom travels to zurich to secure the funds, and tells his wife to offer on the country mansion she's always wanted. What Tom doesn't know yet is that his father was being used as a 'ghost' by a New York laundry operation, and that really, the money belongs to Angel Morales, the biggest cocaine baron in Medellin. When the cartels and the crooked bank find out, Tom faces the seismic shock of his actions accross three continents, rocking the whole Columbian cocaine business and involving a mix of bent lawyers, cops, undercover DEA, and transatlantic assains who'll stop at nothing to get the money back. The Clayton Account is an exhilarating international thriller, part Clear and Present Danger part Robert Ludlum, in which one man's loss is very much another man's gain.
