  • "Jedes Leben hat seinen Preis ... Ben Webster, der für eine Sicherheitsfirma arbeitet, steht vor dem ungewöhnlichsten Auftrag seines Lebens. Der iranische Billionär Darius Qazai beauftragt Webster, gegen ihn zu ermitteln. Auf diese Weise will der charismatische Geschäftsmann und Kunstsammler seine reine Weste beweisen. Aber Websters faszinierenden Auftraggeber umgibt ein finsteres Geheimnis. In Marrakesch spitzen sich die Ereignisse dramatisch zu. Immer mehr Tote kreuzen Websters Weg, und schnell wird ihm klar, dass mächtige Feinde aus Politik und Hochfinanz auch sein Leben bedrohen ... Chris Morgan Jones arbeitete elf Jahre für eine der der weltweit grössten Unternehmensberatungen. Zu seinen Kunden gehörten Regierungen im Mittleren Osten, Bänker in New York, Londoner Investmentfonds, afrikanische Minen-Unternehmen und russische Oligarchen."

  • "A vivid and relentless tale of murderous corporate espionage, Chris Morgan Jones's The Jackal's Share follows the money through the rotten alleys of Marrakech and the shining spires of Dubai, revealing a Middle East as strange and raw as ever depicted. The story begins when Ben Webster, a London corporate investigator specializing in post-Soviet Russia, is hired by a wealthy Iranian philanthropist to clear his good name. Forced to investigate a man above reproach, Webster soon discovers that his master's past is actually a dense net of interlocking half-truths. As he closes in on the reality of the Iranian's fortune--and those who wish to destroy it--Webster learns he may pay for that knowledge with the life of his own family."@en
