About the Author

Financial Thriller author Christopher Hepworth has been a professional negotiator for over thirty years with some of the largest and best known companies in the world. He has won numerous prestigious awards in his chosen profession of procurement. He has spent half a lifetime working for an array of colourful captains of industry both male and female, inspirational and downright terrifying. He often wonders how these desk warriors would cope if they were confronted with real-life global emergencies rather than plotting their narrow-minded corporate agendas. With the magic of fiction, Christopher Hepworth has mixed them together, created a wonderful set of characters, added some timeless villains and dropped them in the middle of some daunting cliff-hanger plots in exotic locations.

Born in the UK in 1961 and raised in Zambia in central Africa like his hero Wilbur Smith, Christopher Hepworth now lives in Sydney, Australia with his wife Anne and four children. Much of the spare time he found for writing has come while watching his children play representative cricket on playing fields around Sydney. It is amazing how many sentences can be written in between the fall of wickets.

The exotic characters in his book reflect his fascination with the charismatic, proud but often maligned warrior nations around the world and whose stories are screaming to be told. In his books, Christopher Hepworth seeks to highlight the plight of those proud people who have suffered the misfortunes of fate and history but whose dignity and aspirations remain intact.

Christopher Hepworth hopes that you will enjoy his new brand of hero fit for the twenty first century!
