A superb, breakneck thriller!



Maxine is the stunning wife of a successful Beverly Hills hedge fund manager. A celebratory evening on the company yacht turns to horror as the boat explodes, engulfed in flames. Maxine is thrown overboard by her husband as the ship sinks. "You'll forgive me," he says. Then vanishes. Was he trying to save her or kill her? In the quest to find answers, Maxine becomes the target of kidnappers and killers, as do those friends and business associates who try to help. As she learns more about her husband's mysterious clients and business dealings, her pursuers get dangerously close. In desperation, she seeks help from a shadowy, reclusive figure from her past, who tells her of something called "the red secret," and how all who learn of it, die. Reminiscent of Hitchcock and hailed by some as the financial-world equivalent of a John Grisham novel, Vanquish of the Dragon Shroud by Gregory Seller, is a breakneck thriller that relies on superb storytelling and character development to hook and entertain readers, rather than blood, violence, and sex.
