Set in the world of private banking this conspiracy thriller offers a glimpse into the plans and motivations of those who rule the world: The Shadows.
Phillip Banks is now a director at one of London's oldest banks - Delonge Martin - helping The Shadows, protect their assets, "no questions asked". Tasked with the acquisition of a Swiss pharmaceutical company, he travels from the Arctic to the Saudi desert, dealing within the tight-knit world of the uber-rich.
In this cautionary tale of the not too distant future Robert Salisbury draws into question The Shadows and their right to anonymity.
