Johnny Blade is a young banker who has it all. From his perch atop the TransAmerica tower in San Francisco, he handles clients’ money with discretion and skill. He and his sexy fiancée come from money and he knows where to find more of it.
One day, his boss calls him into the office with a new assignment. The bank needs to recover a missing fortune in Europe. Europe wasn’t in Johnny’s plans, but he takes on the assignment with confidence.
Until he stumbles into the largest financial mess Europe has faced since the Second World War. Murder and deceit follow him every step of the way as he sniffs out the stolen billions.
A spicy love affair complicates the deceit, but opens the doors of international finance. Racing from one shaky financial capital to another, Johnny finds his loyalties wavering and his life, love and country on the line.
With the attention to evocative detail that characterizes Galt’s novels, The Maltese Cross is an authentic thriller created from the fabric of our time.
