Kirkus says--A Private plane takes off from London with two passengers aboard only to crash into the icy, blank mountains of the Alps, setting off an investigation that will expose corruption in the most elite financial institutions.
Who is Fatima Amir? She’s a hedge fund investor tied to the corrupt Syrian regime. You know what that means. Assad is somehow involved and that is NEVER a good thing.

For those of you who enjoy a fast-paced thriller that keeps you engaged this is your read. It’s packed with energy, suspense, and, of course, murder. What makes it totally plausible is that Alger
worked as a financial analyst and corporate attorney. She finds finance incredibly thrilling and since she’s so comfortable with the nuances of financial firms and transactions she’s able to bring a lot to the table. Very authentic. She also knows Switzerland and has visited extensively. It shows in her attention to detail.
Alger says she was tired of the unreliable narrator in so many recent novels. So am I. It seems like every other book that comes down the pike these days is touting itself as the next GONE GIRL … Alger brings us a fresh, new thriller that will spark your intellect and keep you turning the pages. And, just look who loved her book! You’ll see blurbs by Lee Child and Nelson DeMille and many more. Need I say more!
