COLLAPSE (Surviving is a skill – Killing another)
He is a secret IRA operative.
He is one of the most successful City banker in London
…then the 2008 Financial Crisis happens.
Nancy Wu, former eminent Queen’s Counsel, now prominent patron of the arts, receives the most unexpected call for help. Henry Crowne is accused of murder in a case that seems decided from the very beginning. His Irish background, financial terrorist connections and investment banking success inexorably tilt the scales against him. Nancy’s own lingering darker past calls for her to mount Henry’s defence but her client is the biggest obstacle. Will she manage to unpick the devious manipulations of a most twisted mind?
Collapse is a financial and espionage thriller, the first book in the Henry Crowne: Paying the Price trilogy. If you like The Big Short, The Fear Index and A Week in December you will enjoy the twists and turns of Freddie P Peters’ latest fast-paced thriller. Discover it now…
#1 in the Henry Crown, Paying The Price series.
Set in the City of London in 2008. It really captures the atmosphere at the time of the financial collapse and those responsible for it….
It has great characters in Henry Crowne, a not very likeable, at times, protagonist, former QC, Nancy Wu and the rather wonderful Inspector Pole. He really could have a series of his own. There’s a fizzing chemistry between all three of them too.
A tale of the dark side of the financial world and all its shenanigans. Gripping, tense and a real page turner…
