NIGHT CALL FROM A DISTANT TIME ZONE by Herbert Lieberman - SIGNED FIRST EDITION BOOK

See all titles by Herbert Lieberman.

With each new book Herbert Lieberman breaks fresh ground and demonstrates again his range and versatility as a novelist. In Night Call from a Distant Time Zone, he explores the world of currency trading; of billion dollar foreign exchange schemes that threaten the integrity of international banking and millions of depositors. At it's center are and extraordinary Wall Street executive, a beguiling Eurasian and one of the wiliest villains in recent fiction.

Hiroji Sujimoto is no ordinary Japanese industrialist. Early in his phenomenal career, he discarded his wife, the mother of his only son, and for the past thirty years his companion has been a former French journalist by whom he has a beautiful, highly spirited daughter, Mariko. their European pied-a-terre is a chateaufort in Liechtenstein, that magical principality with liberal banking laws and few, if any, extradition treaties. Sujumoto's vast maze of diversified corporations has made his name a synonym for the mysterious high art of Japanese management, but recent large increases in his personal fortune have come from an unorthodox system.

With the zest and daring of one of his samurai ancestors and with the reluctant help of Charles Daughtry, the brilliant, young foreign exchange expert of New York's Confederated Trust - a multinational bank in which Sujimoto holds controlling interest - this one-time Japanese navy captain has been pocketing enormous sums through illegal currency transactions. When sujimoto's pyramid eventually collapses, shockwaves rebound from Zurich to Capetown to Singapore. The dollar falls, gold rises and financial markets scramble to escape a monetary Pearl Harbor.

While depositors line up to withdraw funds from the failing Confederated Trust and the bank's directors struggle to make Daughtry their fall guy, Sujimoto, his fortune, and his family are safe withing the well-guarded gates of his estate. But Daughtry, with his knowledge of military tactics and strategy and his romantic link to Mariko, has a plan to lay siege to the rogue financier's fortress and bring him to book before New York's federal court. No one, however, has planned on the raging, vengeful stalking of Kajumi, Mariko's half-brother.

With a roster of fascinating characters and sharp invigorating action, Lieberman brings this story of fraud in the high-voltage world of arbitrage to an explosive surprise ending.
