After an airline bombing goes horribly wrong, Sophia devises a brilliant new plan to bring world attention to her peoples plight: sabotage the worlds currency markets, where more than a trillion dollars trade daily, bringing even the mightiest corporations and governments to their knees. Her scheme will be neither cheap nor easy. Money she gets from some dubious backers, but she also needs highly secret financial information. For this, she heads to IMFO the International Monetary and Financial Organization, located on Nineteenth Street, N.W., Washington D.C. There, she woos the disarmingly attractive Harry Hoffinger, whose cutting-edge computer model is crucial to Sophias plan. Sophias penchant for confidential data and for Harry catches the eye of Celine ORourke, an embittered IMFO veteran, whose dogged pursuit of Sophias secret takes her from riot-torn streets of Jakarta to the corridors of power in Washington and the hallowed halls of the Palais in Geneva. As the financial markets crumble, and the lives of key finance ministers hang in the balance, both women will learn the price of love and the cost of betrayal.
