Product description

Review

From the reviews of Nest of Vipers:

‘Stylish thriller imparts all the fear and exhilaration of financial juggling on a massive scale’
Daily Mail

‘A taut, sexy thriller’
Evening Standard

‘This riveting suspense-high finance combo marks Davies – a former trader – as Wall Street’s answer to Scott Turow’
New Woman

‘If John Grisham were female and British and attuned to the high-tech tintinnabulation of currencies changing hands around the world, he might write a twisty thriller such as Nest of Vipers’
Fortune magazine

‘Her writing style is mellifluous, her understanding of high-stakes currency trading authoritative yet unobtrusive, and her action scenes snap – making this a financial thriller with bull, not bear, written all over it’
Publishers Weekly

From the Back Cover

'INTO THE FIRE' IS A POWERFUL THRILLER OF LOSS AND REDEMPTION, RACING FROM THE DEALING ROOMS OF LONDON TO THE JUNGLES OF PERU.

Helen Jencks is a beautiful and highly successful dealer at an international investment bank in London, but she has always had to live in the shadow of her financier father's disgrace and disappearance when she was a child. When Helen discovers that she has been set up in the multi-million-dollar scam, she knows that the world will assume that she is guilty. Rather than fight to prove her innocence at this stage, she decides to follow her instincts and go in search of her father.

Helen's godfather, Dai Morgan, arranges for her to stay with Victor Maldonado, the man who helped her father start a new life in Peru over twenty years ago. However, he warns Helen to be wary of Maldonado and not to reveal to him who she is until she is absolutely sure that she can trust him. Peru is a dangerous place, and past alliances may not have stood the test of time. Already, Helen can see she is jumping out of the frying pan…

Maldonado's house is a tranquil haven as Helen assimilates the vibrant, exotic, shocking and frightening life she finds in Peru. Yet she wonders exactly who this man is and why his house is protected by high-security fences, dogs and armed guards. As her fear and uncertainty increase, Helen realises that she must get away from Maldonado out into the vast country of the Incas that has swallowed her father. Only here, in a desperate and gruelling fight for her life, will Helen Jencks find the answer to the questions that have haunted her life. Whether she can survive to use the information is another story…

LINDA DAVIES is the bestselling author of 'Wilderness of Mirrors' and 'Nest of Vipers'. After living in Peru for the last two years, she has recently returned to London.
