Across Europe and America, the rich are getting very much richer, while the poor get poorer. This is a story for those people disillusioned by growing inequality... whatever your political persuasion.
When three wealthy bankers drop dead on a luxury yacht, local detective Kate Carter is part of the team sent to investigate. They soon learn that this is just one small part of a global event, and dozens of other rich money men have died elsewhere in the exact same way: vomiting blood before quickly collapsing.
The CIA oversees an unprecedented investigation the world over, and Agent Calvin Nichols is assigned to work on Carter's case. At the same time, the media starts speculating about who or what might be behind the terrible crimes.
