Wealthy stock trader Michael Hunt is a secretive man with a past he's not even shared with Sonya, his university professor wife.
But Sonya is forced to start piecing it together when Michael suddenly goes missing leaving her with millions in debt, a bank foreclosing on their Sydney beach house, and many unanswered questions.
And when the global financial crisis erupts, Sonya's world gets even bleaker...
Until she stumbles on some strange files... files that will change her life forever... The keys to repaying her debts... and to finding Michael... at least to why he left... and why he lied.
Using the files, Sonya risks everything. Her white-knuckled ride through reeling stock markets, a love-triangle murder and conspiracy takes her from Sydney to Princeton University to ask a famous physicist to help her unlock the mystery.
Sonya's hunt for Michael becomes a search for herself.
...if only she knew what he knew...
About The Author
When it dawned on John that what got him up in the morning was writing, not his day job, he quit the job. That was after 30 years in executive life. He was then an executive director in a leading investment bank. Earlier, he’d been a partner in 2 major law firms, and a director of a publishing house.
He is a well-known business writer and commentator and his writing has appeared in a variety of publications in Australia and overseas including: The Australian, The Australian Financial Review, Company Director, Business Spectator, The Age, The Bulletin, and the UK’s Financial Times.
As well as writing, he's a board member of two stock-exchange-listed corporations and some not-for-profits, as well as a co-founder of Pantera Press. He lives in Sydney with his wife, a sculptor. They have two adult children who share their passions for the arts, books, business and philanthropy.
Nowhere Man is John’s first novel. His second novel, Born to Run, is a thriller about a US presidential election that goes wildly wrong with terror, treason, and murder. Pantera Press is publishing it in August 2011.
