    Imagine a drug that made your brain function to its full potential. A drug that allowed you pick up a foreign language in a single day. A drug that helped you process information so fast you could see patterns in the stock market. Just as his life is fading into mediocrity, Eddie Spinola comes across such a pill: MDT-48 - a sort of Viagra for the brain. But while its benefits materialise quickly, so do certain unwelcome side-effects.

    Danny Lynch didn't sign up for this, but right now it's all he's got. Three weeks ago he was working at a chow hall in Afghanistan and - more or less - doing fine. Sure, this meant living in a war zone, but he was never in the line of fire, and frankly the money was hard to resist. Then Danny saw something he shouldn't have, and now he's back in New York City, haunted by what sent him home and lucky to be employed at all, even if that means dicing carrots for ten hours a day in a stuffy Midtown restaurant.

    A tabloid star is killed in a helicopter crash and three years later a young journalist is warned off the story. A private security contractor loses it in the Congo, with deadly consequences. In Ireland an ex-prime minister struggles to contain a dark secret from his time in office. A ferocious, paranoid thriller that explores the legacy of corruption in big business, the West’s fear of China, the role of back room political players, and the question of who controls what we know.

    A Wall Street investment banker is shot dead while jogging in Central Park. Then one of the savviest hedge-fund managers in the city is gunned down outside an Upper West Side restaurant. Are these killings part of a coordinated terrorist attack, or just coincidence? Investigative journalist Ellen Dorsey has a hunch that it’s neither. When an attempt is made on the life of another CEO, the story blows wide open...
