Evasive stock market trader, Michael Hunt, keeps everything close to his chest, even from his wife, Sonya. Michael vanishes without a trace, suddenly leaving Sonya with a multi-million-dollar debt and no hope of repaying it. As the bank turns up the heat on her, Sonya discovers that Michael hasn't been cagey with her for the last ten years, but was actively deceiving her. When the global financial crisis erupts, with stock markets collapsing, her world crashes almost as far as it can go. It's almost certain the bank will toss her onto the street, penniless ... until she stumbles on a barely credible computer disk...a key that not only might save her house, but help find Michael... or at least discover why he left... and why he lied. Using the disk, Sonya embarks on a white-knuckle ride through wild, gyrating stock markets, and travels from Sydney to New York, and to Princeton University to unlock the mystery. And in searching for Michael, Sonya finds herself.
As a former executive director in Macquarie Bank as well as partner in
two major law firms, Green comes to writing (and publishing with the
newly formed Pantera Press as
his baby) with an interesting pedigree.
His experience in money matters has been brought to bear in this tight, taut financial thriller whose first draft (in August 2001) presciently described the bombing of the World Trade Centre in New York while a subsequent draft nailed the vortex of debt that ripped apart financial markets in September 2008 just weeks before things turned really nasty.
Putting aside the backstory, Nowhere Man is a financial thriller with a sharp disturbing edge that crosses over financial deals, corporate crises, murder, love and conspiracy as a woman's search from Sydney to New York for her mysteriously missing husband turns into a search to find herself.
