Free thriller from Endeavor - Event Driven
by Andrew Cartmel. #2 in his Rupert Hood series.
Meet Rupert Hood. Every day he joins the wage slaves commuting to Putney, in south-west London, to one more apparently dull job in a high street estate agents.
But the company is a front -- for the UK's intelligence service.
And Rupert Hood isn’t an estate agent. He’s a secret agent.
In the second of Andrew Cartmel's brilliant re-imaginings of the classic 1960s spy caper, Rupert Hood is thrown back into action -- and facing the deadliest challenge of his career.
Someone has been scavenging waste plutonium and using it to create a bomb.
A deadly terror attack is planned on the City of London -- one that could ruin the global financial system.
But who? And why?
Hunting down the terrorists means Rupert going undercover in one of the world's most sophisticated and wealthiest 'event-driven' hedge funds to learn more about the likely target.
But as Rupert gets to grips with the world of high finance, events are about to be driven out of control -- with catastrophic consequences.
And in a nerve-shredding chase he must confront the deadliest -- and strangest -- opponent of his life.
