THE DEADLY TRADE by KEN MORRIS
Financial thriller pioneer Ken Morris has returned with a
novel faster, scarier, and more current than even his
highly-acclaimed debut, Man in the Middle.
Tim Mack is a financial analyst running from a past full of
death and drink. But when he leaves the Wall Street rat
race hoping to slow down his life in San Diego, he finds
that a calm and peaceful existence is just not in the cards
While researching a local biotechnology firm that has just
exploded into flames, Tim begins to untangle a lethal web
of deceit, where he discovers a frightening, secret
triumvirate of mass-murder-a high-finance broker has linked
a Middle-Eastern terrorist organization with a dying
biotechnology firm willing to do anything to keep afloat.
How far will this alliance go? Tim soon finds out that a
bug that "makes AIDS look like a hangnail" might only be
The Deadly Trade pulls on our own worst fears, inspired by
the news of yesterday and almost sure to make the headlines
of tomorrow. The anthrax scare of 2001 pales in the light
of Ken's terrifying vision. What legendary sportscaster
Charlie Jones said about Man in the Middle is even truer
about The Deadly Trade: "It can happen-perhaps it already
has. And, if hasn't happened yet, it will."
