Evasive stock market trader, Michael Hunt, keeps everything close to his chest, even from his wife, Sonya. Michael vanishes without a trace, suddenly leaving Sonya with a multi-million-dollar debt and no hope of repaying it. As the bank turns up the heat on her, Sonya discovers that Michael hasn't been cagey with her for the last ten years, but was actively deceiving her. When the global financial crisis erupts, with stock markets collapsing, her world crashes almost as far as it can go. It's almost certain the bank will toss her onto the street, penniless ... until she stumbles on a barely credible computer disk...a key that not only might save her house, but help find Michael... or at least discover why he left... and why he lied. Using the disk, Sonya embarks on a white-knuckle ride through wild, gyrating stock markets, and travels from Sydney to New York, and to Princeton University to unlock the mystery. And in searching for Michael, Sonya finds herself.
