Tournament of Shadows

Adult; Mystery/Thriller; (Market)

In the shadows, there are those who plot to exploit the financial weaknesses of the United States. A well-planned assault could threaten the dollar?s position as the world?s reserve currency. An attack like this would also threaten the business of government, military, and social programs and lead to dangerous instability, in America and around the world. It will take the combined efforts of Sarah Linderman and Jack Romanov to foil an international conspiracy to destabilize the global financial markets and bring America to her knees. However, it?s almost impossible to protect against an invisible antagonist, especially when the adversary is knowledgeable with unlimited funds and determined to humble the whole world. Who is the concealed enemy of the United States, and why are they so hell bent on throwing the world into a financial crisis? Will Sarah and Jack be able to stop them before it?s too late, or will America end up powerless and poverty stricken? This is a work of fiction, but recent events show that in the financial world, the truth can be stranger and sometimes just as sinister.

When shadow banking goes rogue
September 2016
Could the financial markets ever be used as a weapon of mass destruction?
That’s the central question in Tournament of Shadows, a new financial thriller, in which a rogue nation tries to
bring the US to its knees through a toxic mix of treasury market manipulation and more traditional acts of
terrorism.
It’s a debut work of fiction from two well-known names in the financial markets: Michael Hyman, once one of
the leading global fixed income managers at GH Asset Management; and Andrew Capon, award-winning
journalist and investment editor and writer, familiar to Euromoney readers as the author of our Inside Investment
column.
Fascinating
Hyman and Capon have crafted a fascinating tale that takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride through the
worlds of finance, politics and espionage as we follow reluctant hero and fund manager Jack Romanov’s
attempts to find out just who is behind influential leveraged fund JS Global.
As you’d expect from these authors, the detail of the financial market manipulation is written with clarity. But
such detail never bogs down a taut thriller that reveals itself as a real page-turner.
Imagine that John Le Carré was a former bond trader and decided to turn his hand to a fictionalized version
of The Big Short.
Tournament of Shadows, from Archway Publishing, is recommended reading.
