The Devil's Banker is a fast-paced, fascinating read. It takes today'sworld, including 9/11, and makes one wonder what could actually happen.
Adam Chapel is a Treasury agent. His job is not to chase the bad guyswith a gun, but with his mind: he follows the money. When he ends up inFrance, following $500,000 believed to belong to a terrorist group, itall begins to go bad. He survives a blast that kills the majority of histeam, a blast that happens while he's in charge.
The pursuit of the group behind the blast is interesting, as are theauthor's ideas of who becomes a terrorist and why. I found it amazingthat all of the main characters were strongly influenced by theirfathers, something that I don't think is as common as all that. I alsofound it interesting that although the author specifies that Adam is aTreasury agent, he doesn't say for which department.
A very interesting intriguing tale. I had no trouble following theaction, and could not wait to finish it.
