MONTECRISTO MARTIN SUTER

Hardcover best seller title in Germany, Switzerland and Australia.

Video journalist Jonas Brand is on a rail journey from Zurich to Basel when stock trader Polo Contini appears to throw himself from the train to his death.

Brand sets his footage of the aftermath of the incident aside to investigate a strange coincidence two 100- Swiss-franc banknotes bearing the same serial number have come into his possession. Sensing an opportunity to graduate from celebrity journalism to serious investigation, he has the banknotes analysed, with bizarrely contradictory and fatal results.

MY REVIEW

Readers do not have to be dyed in the wool lovers of crime novels to become addicted to the work of Martin Suter. Set in the tangled world of finance, politics and the media, Montecristo is a pacy conspiracy thriller full of betrayal and underhand tactics. A sharp and entertaining demonstration of the topical maxim that some banks are simply too big to fail. So well researched that you can’t help but reconsider the good old method of keeping your savings tucked away under the mattress.

Published Hardback 23rd June 2016 by no exit press.
