1 in the Henry Crown, Paying The Price series.

Set in the City of London in 2008. It really captures the atmosphere at the time of the financial collapse and those responsible for it….

It has great characters in Henry Crowne, a not very likeable, at times, protagonist, former QC, Nancy Wu and the rather wonderful Inspector Pole. He really could have a series of his own. There’s a fizzing chemistry between all three of them too.

A tale of the dark side of the financial world and all its shenanigans.

The catchy cover made me pick this book up. I loved the book because of three main reasons- 1. The portrayal of the incidents perfectly
2. The twisting plot with unexpected turns
3. The thrilling elements the story entangled with.
- All the things mentioned above made this book a sure shot for avid readers. Definitely recommendable. Thank you.

Consisting of Collapse, Breaking Point and No turning Back , Freddie P. Peters has created an exhilarating series of high stakes financial thrillers. Stories deep in financial crime and corruption, murder, violence, terrorism, IRA, and focuses on the dishonest art world and more!

These fast paced, highly entertaining thrillers are a joy to read.

These books really carry some detail on past real life events, as Peters rips open the secrecy and the unscrupulous actions of the banks and bankers.
