Cityboy is back! The bestselling author of CITYBOY, which sold over 200,000 copies, returns with an explosive, edge-of-the-seat, no-holds-barred thriller of City corruption, scams and monstrously bad behaviour.
Steve Jones, our Cityboy hero, wants out. He's looking to cash-in before the soul-stripping toil of coining it in London's financial heartland turns into a life sentence. All it will take is a handsome seven figure wedge in the bank and it's the good life for him and goodbye to the horrors of the Square Mile. Like the expert chancer he is, he sees an opportunity. Hacking into his boss's computer, he finds something that chills him to the bone. This is big time; there are bad men involved; there are millions at stake. So no change there then. But when he stumbles upon a murder and becomes the prime suspect, he has to go on the run. Together with his partner Gemma, he improvises ingenious ways of outwitting the authorities, a vicious drug cartel and even M15 in a chase that will send him half way round the world if he's going to stay alive...
Before sacrificing his soul to dark forces in the Square Mile, Cityboy was a genuine left-wing hippy and political activist, complete with ponytail and hoop earrings. His dream of becoming a global traveller was cruelly dashed when his brother got him an interview at a French bank in the City, which would set him on the rocky road to destruction and despair.
As a primer to back-stabbing, bullying, drug-taking, gambling, boozing, lap-dancing, this takes some beating ... a necessary and valuable book
Engaging, timely and important
His timing couldn't be better ... London's pernicious financial world reveals itself in all its ugliness
The Sunday Times
'If you liked CITYBOY, you'll love this. It's engaging, witty and suspenseful. As bold and innovative as its author, JUST BUSINESS takes the reader on a breath-taking guided tour of cocaine blizzards, bankers' drafts, and emotional whirlwinds. I could put it down but not until long after I'd finished it. It's first class'
