Many leading economic authorities are predicting a global financial collapse within the next two to three years. Now acclaimed, awarding-winning, New York Times bestselling novelist David Hagberg, and renowned financial reporter Lawrence Light, have combined forces to dramatize— hour by hour—how this global collapse will go down. Expect to see them discussing this nightmare scenario on TV and podcasts.

In 36 hours, a small group of international business tycoons will obliterate the world economy. They have found allies in China, as the West has imposed economic sanctions that threaten to plunge their country into bankruptcy, and China is determined to fight fire with fire. Their hackers will shut down the East Coast electrical grid in unison with America’s economic meltdown, and mercenary hit teams will assassinate the heads of the three biggest Wall Street banks, along with the U.S. Treasury secretary.

Only one person spots a glitch in the US Stock Exchange computers: SEC computer expert Cindy David. Her warnings sound on deaf ears, however, and she only has time to inform her friend Hank Harris before she is kidnapped by the mercenaries.

A former Navy Seal turned FBI employee, Harris has a day and a half to unravel the plot, save the economy, and, most importantly to him, save his friend. Because once the crash starts to go down, nothing can be done to stop it. The Second Great Depression will begin.
