The Banker's Box
Sometimes a minor incident can have devastating effects. When a brief altercation between two women at an upscale Vancouver hair salon threatens to expose an international Chinese crime boss, flamboyant local banker Neil Mohle and his wife Vivian find themselves running for their lives and others grappling with the far-reaching fallout—including Neil’s client, Woodstock LNG.
Woodstock, along with a shady private investment fund, are strategic local participants in a Chinese consortium’s bid to develop a liquefied natural gas plant in British Columbia. Worth billions, this contract is the cornerstone of the political agenda of B.C.’s ambitious premier to ensure her re-election.
Coincidentally, embedded in the premier’s inner circle is Canadian Security Intelligence Service Officer, Hayden Jones. Working undercover as a special advisor on LNG, Jones is actually part of a CSIS federal investigation into Chinese money laundering—an investigation which begins to unravel as a consequence of the Mohles’ sudden disappearance and Jones’s own untimely intimate relationships.
With tentacles stretching from North America to Asia and a multifaceted plot involving high finance, crime, political intrigue, and romantic entanglements, The Banker’s Box will appeal to local and international readers alike. Set against the backdrop of the dynamic global finance industry, B.R. Bentley’s latest novel provides a riveting and unique look at the crumbling foundations that frequently support power’s elegant façade.
Fans of The Banker’s Box will also enjoy B.R. Bentley’s previous two novels, The Cross and The Bermuda Key. Visit www.brbentley.com for more information.
