LOS ANGELES DAILY NEWS
When financial executive Verity Banks' latest proposal is axed by her boss, she decides to show how easy it is to break through automated security, hide money, and then show senior management where it is.

From Our Editors

The Washington Post Book World called Katherine Neville's bestselling novel The Eight "a feminist answer to Raiders of the Lost Ark". Now, Neville remakes the rules of adventure fiction again with a gripping tale of financial intrigue and mesmerizing romance that whirls from the high-power money centers of New York and San Francisco to Paris and a breathtaking Greek island. Verity Banks is the senior woman executive at the Bank of the World, a prestigious financial institution with offices around the globe. Head of Electronic Funds Transfer - and supervisor of some of the bank's most dedicated computer geniuses - Verity lives and breathes the world of big money. But when her power-hungry boss, Kislick Willingly III, axes her proposal to step up the bank's computer security, Verity finds herself thinking some remarkably treacherous thoughts. Her plan is simple. She'll break through automated security and hide some money in a place no one will find it - inside the bank's own computer system. She'll then point out to senior management how easy such a theft really is.
