Free thriller from Endeavor - Event Driven by Andrew Cartmel. #2 in his Rupert Hood series.

Quote:
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.

THE STORY - WHERE CANON LAW MEETS COMMON LAW

Religion and Politics - Chicago-style. When the Chicago Daily News accuses State’s Attorney Victor Pulaski of favoring the rich by disregarding the real story about the suicide of a society teenager, Chicago’s prosecutor unleashes his chief pit bull to dig up the dirt. “Fire Plug” O’Neill, the Senior Assistant State’s Attorney and a defense attorneys’ nightmare is ordered to track down the facts and apply the law in the finest Chicago tradition. Wielding the Grand Jury like a sledgehammer at a demolition party, O’Neill raises the ante on all of the suspects, including the Cardinal of Chicago and a prominent Bishop, until everyone reaches the boiling point in this high-stakes pursuit of the “truth.” Fans of television shows like "Law & Order," "Criminal Minds" and "Suits" will feel right at home with SPECIAL DISPENSATIONS' fast-paced action, fascinating cast of characters and finely-tuned twists and turns where Canon Law meets Common Law.
