From New York to London, top bank CEOs on the infamous 'Bonus List' start dying in bizarre circumstances every time Amy tries to find out what their secret plan is. Dr Amy Kell, a former anthropologist, now a high-flying investment banker helping to sell off bankrupt cities has just got her first bonus - a million dollars. However, once she starts investigating her father's suicide, caused by a bank forcing his manufacturing company into bankruptcy, she realizes that millions of other people are being ruined by the banks that are making her rich - and it's about to get much worse. Amy follows the chain of responsibility to the top of the world's banks and discovers a secret trillion dollar offshore project - nicknamed The Big Steal - which will cause another global financial meltdown. Can Amy stop The Big Steal in time? Can she persuade Hayden, a handsome but cynical financial journalist and the well-meaning but anarchic Payback Movement to help her? Will she be blamed for the banker deaths? And can Amy ensure her father didn't die in vain? There are many themes which weave their way through The Big Steal, each pulled from the cauldron of contemporary culture. These include exploring the offshore, shadow banking world in which trillions of dollars are taken out of the real economy. The Payback Movement is an activist, anti-bank-fraud movement, inspired by Occupy, Anonymous and the Tax Justice Network. The trigger for the story is a man who can't face the ruination of his small business which he has built up over a life-time. There are stylish elements of Japanese food, fashion and karate. Following the current trend for female protagonists, Dr. Amy Kell is a gutsy, educated woman who flirts with challenging, authoritarian men and even has a 'fifty shades of grey' moment.
