Inhaltsangabe: Christopher Reich electrified readers with Numbered Account and The Runner, his first two international thrillers. Now the New York Times bestselling author whose work has been called ?gripping? ( Chicago Tribune), ?chilling? ( The Denver Post), ?wonderful? ( The New York Times Book Review), ratchets up the stakes in an ingeniously plotted story of nerve-jangling intrigue and hot-wired suspense. Using today?s cutthroat global economy as a backdrop, The First Billion explodes into a breakneck tale of betrayal, revenge, and redemption...

John ?Jett? Gavallan is a former fighter pilot, now the high-flying CEO of Black Jet Securities, an investment firm that earned its first billion before the techno dream crashed and burned. Poised for an offering crucial to his company?s survival, Gavallan is banking on the riskiest gamble of his dazzling career. In exactly six days, he will take Mercury Broadband, Russia?s leading media company, public on the New York Stock Exchange. But rumors of fraud have suddenly surfaced that could send the deal south. Gavallan makes a preemptive strike by dispatching his number-two man--fellow Desert Storm fighter pilot Grafton Byrnes--to Moscow to penetrate the shadowy Russian multinational. When Byrnes fails to return, Gavallan fears the worst. But
the truth is even more diabolical than he can imagine.

Plunging into a desperate search for his best friend, the renegade top gun is suddenly fighting a different kind of war, where there is no safe harbor and no one he can trust. Not Konstantin Kirov, the elusive head of Mercury Broadband who may not be what he seems. Not the bankers and traders Gavallan does business with every day. Not the exotic beauty who has told him all her deepest secrets--except one. Suddenly Jett finds himself trapped in a conspiracy that could shatter the delicate balance between nations--and plunge the global economy into chaos. Hunted by the F.B.I. and a band of elite killers, Jett races from Palm Beach to Zurich to Moscow in a desperate search for answers. But for this brave ex-commando haunted by visions of war, the truth comes at a terrible price. With Mercury rising and the hours ticking down, he is moving closer to a place where murder and revenge are the currency of choice...and where the first billion is the ultimate insider secret--and the deadliest obsession of all.

With breakneck plotting, stunning realism, and a sense of danger that keeps the heart racing, The First Billion is a knockout of a novel that will linger long after the final shocking twist is revealed.

Rezension: 'THE FIRST BILLION is a dynamite thriller that says a lot about investment banking, business in general, and greed in particular. This is Christopher Reich's big book' James Patterson

'The plot is so suspenseful, the dialogue so believable, and the other characters so finely drawn. From the coquettish opening line, "You are millionaire?," to the bombshell dropped three-quarters through the 435-page book, the result is so

much fun, you can already envision "The First Billion: The Movie." The only question is whether David Duchovny or Tom Cruise wins the bake-off' New York Times

'Engrossing...destined for a big readership...The First Billion does its tricky job well, telling several stories and back-stories in alternating narratives that hurtle down an international collision course. There are interesting pocket-lectures along the way' Wall Street Journal

'If you want high-concept espionage, it doesn't get much better than this' Booklist

'Reich does for finance what John Grisham does for the law... There's plenty of fiscal authenticity in THE FIRST BILLION, but at heart it's a tale of good guys and bad guys, and the nasty scrapes they find themselves in. And how many brokers can fly their own MiG jet fighter? Reich might be going for financial realism, but he knows when to push the narrative envelope' San Francisco Chronicle

'Briskly paced thriller packed with genuine surprises...deliciously plausible' Entertainment Weekly
