Eric Martin is desperate to forget his past, one that almost cost him his future.
Working in Paris as deputy head of a bank’s internal security department, Eric notices a high-speed trader’s uncanny ability to predict extremely profitable trades. Even though there’s nothing illegal about the activity, he knows the trader’s success is more than just luck.
But, no one believes him. Armed only with a handful of data and a powerful instinct, Eric searches for the mysterious trader on his own. He suspects that a predictive algorithm has fallen into the wrong hands.
Eric sets off for Istanbul to find answers promised to him by an informant. He finds an unlikely ally in Interpol agent Stephanie Brule. With Interpol wanting him back in Paris and out of the way, Eric’s quest is also hampered by the sudden appearance of his ex-lover, a boss he’s not sure he can trust, and a terrorist who always seems one step ahead.
Will Eric put an end, once and for all, to the nightmare that began when he accepted a job that was too good to be true? Or will his need for revenge and justice lead him deeper into a treacherous world he has no way of escaping?
I chose to read this book after receiving a free copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. I had just finished Nomad on the Run, the first book in this series, and was happy to start this one right away.
Eric Martin is just a little crazy! He’s obsessed with finding a trader he believes has found the algorithm that he risked his life to keep out of the wrong hands three years ago. He knows he went a little too far last time but did he learn his lesson? He still harbors guilt for the loss of innocent lives.
The characters are complex and more developed than in Nomad on the Run. While I enjoyed the first book, I liked this one even better. I especially liked that he was able to explain how the market works enough to understand the book but not so much that I felt bogged down in a bunch of financial mumbo jumbo.
Nomad’s Premonition is full of mystery, suspense, action, and betrayal. Although it is the second book in the series, it does stand alone. I’m hoping there’s another Nomad book in the future, I’m ready to find out what happens to Eric next!
