The hero is a chippy cockney constantly outplaying the rich and privileged until (weirdly) he gets together with them to save the world. Lovers of the man of action genre will be delighted to know the story features a volcanic island in true James Bond fashion.
Disclaimer: years ago I worked with the author.
When a junior bank worker discovers a valuable talent for reading trends in the market, he quickly soars to a position of power in the financial world. Yet, the celebrations may be short-lived, as his new status brings him to the attention of a shadowy figure who moves behind the markets. Together they must unravel a terrifying financial model, before a cataclysm plunges the world back into the dark ages.
With glamorous locations, global terrorism, and the power of limitless wealth, The Armageddon Trade makes numbers dangerous and sexy. I wasn't sure I would enjoy a financial thriller, but this was truly an enexpected delight.
The only good thing one can say is that it does actually have a plot, but it's one which is so laughably implausible that just ploughing through to the last page is hard work. This book truly plumbs the depths of the Crime, Thrillers and Mystery genre - or maybe it should be in the Humour section? Clem, we're truly grateful to you for founding ADVFN, but I for one won't be buying your next book.

Lots of financial juice and loads of action, too -- not just some dry book about money and how to trade.
