Synopsis

Dark Pools is a gripping novel revolving around the audacious attempt by China to completely annihilate the US dollar - literally in the blink of an eye, using ultra sophisticated computing power - and replace it overnight with the Chinese renminbi as the new world currency. Their provocative actions are deliberately choreographed to coincide with a riot-torn crisis in Hong Kong involving the Pro-Democracy movement, and the covert construction of a highly confrontational military airstrip in the South China Seas. The narrative rapidly criss-crosses the globe over a 22-day period in August until the plot nears its denouement: when the Chinese intend to strike at the very heart of the foreign exchange market. Dark Pools weaves together the worlds of international banking and high finance; numerous covert intelligence agencies; computer hackers and cyber criminals; political intrigue; and the awesome firepower of a US aircraft carrier task force. If China succeeds in its ambitious scheme, they will utterly devastate the dollar and bring America, and indeed the rest of the world, to its knees. A rebel group within the Politburo are intent on making China the only superpower left standing when Armageddon strikes: can they be stopped in time? Dark Pools is a geo-political, fast-moving, financial thriller, sweeping across London, New York, Hong Kong, Macau and Guangzhou. It will appeal to fans of speculative fiction, particularly those who are interested in contemporary issues such as cyber crime and currency wars.
