The Domino Effect by Davis Bunn. Esther Larsen is a top risk analyst at one of the country’s largest banking institutions. She discovers information that she believes indicates the coming of a worldwide financial crisis. It appears that her own employer is involved and she becomes convinced that she must do something. But she is not sure that she can stand up to an international conspiracy, and even if she could, she is not sure anyone would listen to her. As the markets edge closer and closer to a tipping point, she manages to find her voice. But those she seeks to expose will not go down quietly. Her life is now in danger and the world is on the brink of complete financial devastation.
