Baker & Taylor
Jackie Havilland, a P.I. with an Orlando detective agency investigating a smear campaign against stroke-afflicted Congressman Graham Hutchings, and businessman-turned-congressman Wynn Bryant stumble upon a dangerous and destructive conspiracy aimed at reshaping the world economy. By the author of The Great Divide.

Blackwell North Amer
Jackie Havilland is working in an Orlando detective agency when she is approached with an unusual request: Esther Hutchings, wife of Congressman Graham Hutchings, wants Jackie to find out who is behind a smear campaign to destroy her husband, who has recently suffered a debilitating stroke. Congressman Hutchings was investigating a secret project called Tsunami, the biggest currency scam in history. Jackie is instructed to unearth all she can and to leave no paper trail.
Wynn Bryant, a successful, wealthy businessman, is the brother-in-law of the governor of Florida. Wynn has never liked politics and is surprised when his brother-in-law contrives to have him take Hutching's place in Congress. The reason soon becomes clear: Legislation to relieve Third World countries of their debt - dubbed the Jubilee Amendment - is in the offing, and the governor is determined to have it quashed at any cost. Just as Wynn is about to decline the position, he is told that refusing isn't an option.
As Jackie and Wynn get more deeply involved in their new assignments, they begin to feel ripples of a conspiracy carrying a destructive power far more dangerous than the notorious Tsunami scam. It is a killer wave that threatens to crush them both and permanantly reshape the world economy.

Combine politics and the world of finance and you've got the makings of a high-tech suspense novel that feels all too real.
