You must read this book - you have "Zero Alternatives" - Look for review coming soon!
Scott Walker is a fugitive from the quicksands of Finance, with one card to play, a silicon oracle coveted by billionaires, hitmen and hackers. As he fights for survival and vengeance, digging deeper into the dark heart of the global economy, one question torments him: what price will the world have to pay?
ZERO ALTERNATIVE is an action-packed conspiracy thriller that plucks at the base of human nature. When our grip on love, hope and morality starts to slide, the only future worth living is the one we choose for ourselves.
Luca Pesaro was born in Italy in the early seventies, but he has spent a lot of his adult life in the US or UK. After long years gaining a degree and masters in the pseudo-science that is Economics he got bored, jumped the gun and became a derivatives trader in financial markets with several investment banks. Now reformed, he is writing full-time.
Zero Alternative is his first novel and he is hard at work on his second thriller.He lives in London, is married to an awesome Italian lady and has two children who always manage to annoy, surprise and delight beyond any reasonable expectation.

Thrill a minute, unputdownable. This is a great novel with a brilliant contemporary plot, compelling protagonists and well drawn settings. The pace is like a Baldacci or Grisham but the characters more interesting and the narrative less formulaic.The insight into the financial markets is fascinating. Reminded me of Robert Harris's Fear Index but this is much more enjoyable.
