Martin Bodenham Bio, Blurb and more!!

Image of Martin BodenhamBIO:
I am a writer of international thriller novels based around crime and the financial markets.
I was born in Leicester, England. My American father was in the US Air Force while my British mother sterilized telephone handsets. I was educated at the Duke of York's Royal Military School in Kent and at the University of Leicester, where I read economics.
After university, I trained as a chartered accountant, working in the UK and USA. I have spent the last twenty-five years in private equity, working either as an investor or advisor. Today, I am the CEO of Advantage Capital, a London-based private equity firm. Along the way, I have been an investor at 3i and Close Brothers, and a corporate finance partner at both KPMG and Ernst & Young.

My debut novel THE GENEVA CONNECTION is an organized crime thriller and was published in December, 2011 by Musa Publishing. Within a couple of weeks, it was voted third place in the prestigious 2011 P&E thriller readers’ poll.  Since then, it has attracted considerable media attention, including BBC interviews, newspaper and other coverage and it now stands at the top of the Goodreads Best Financial Thrillers List. By the third quarter of 2012 it had entered the top 20 best selling books in the Kindle store at Amazon.com and had made it into the top 5 best selling mysteries and thrillers category.
“The Geneva Connection is a hard-hitting, well-written piece of action-driven fiction, with an attention to detail that James Patterson would be proud of and yet quite different from anything I’ve yet seen…” Celina Summers, Editorial Director at Musa Publishing
“With this page-turner, Bodenham aspires to do for fund managers what John Grisham has done for lawyers.” Corporate Financier Magazine

 Product DetailsBlurb:
Brilliant investor John Kent is living his dream. The success of his private equity firm has propelled him into the ranks of the world’s super-rich, allowing him to give his family the security and advantages he hadn’t known in his own childhood.
But John’s dream is shattered with the discovery that his largest investor is bankrolled by the most vicious drug cartel in Mexico. Then one of his partners is murdered to guarantee his silence, and John realizes he cannot go to the authorities.
When the ambitious head of the DEA threatens John with incarceration, his nightmare is complete. If he resists the DEA, what will happen to his family while he’s imprisoned? But the alternative is worse. For if John chooses to betray the cartel, he and his family might pay the ultimate price.
