Game of Greed: An engrossing Crime Thriller (Francis Scott-Wren Series Book 1)

by Charlotte Larsen

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.

Breathtaking International thriller from a bestselling Scandinavian author.

On the surface Francis Scott-Wren appears like any other rich socialite – tailored suits, old world charm and significant wealth. A man born to privilege. But what only a very few know, is that Scott-Wren has a secret: he uses his wealth and influence to rid the world of greed and selfishness.

Now he has his sights on ruthless power broker George Schwartz, who directs Schwartz Inc. as a vehicle of personal profit and vengeance. Backed by his squad of highly trained agents, including his loyal sidekicks Dhammakarati, a Buddhist monk, and the anti-social female agent Jo, Scott-Wren and his team set off on a collision course with Schwartz that will leave some dead and others exposed.

As the action travels from five-star hotels via Buddhist monasteries to the hallowed halls of the world’s most powerful players, Scott-Wren engages Schwartz in a fierce battle of wits that exposes disturbing similarities between himself and his prey. What remains to be seen is whether they really are so different and how far Scott-Wren is willing to go for victory.

” … fast-paced, enjoyable and well-structured â?¦”Henry Porter, author of The Bell Ringers

Full of action and international intrigue, Charlotte Larsen’s intense thriller is also an examination of significant moral dilemmas including whether the end justifies the means, personal gain versus the greater good, and the righteousness of vigilante justice. An unusual mix of business, action, existential themes, and meditation. Readers will find themselves not only on a journey full of danger and violence but also of self-discovery.

As thought-provoking as it is entertaining, Game of Greed is a riveting standalone crime thriller and a gripping exploration of human nature and the integrity of the world of big business. If you like passionate heroes, spine-chilling suspense, and a fight for justice, then you’ll love Charlotte Larsen’s fast-paced Thriller.
