At the peak of his career, Jochen Walther, Bank of Germany's powerful financier, seems to have it all--social status, wealth, and recognition. However--much to everyone's surprise, and after having closed an important deal with his brilliant protégé, Tom Slezak--the distinguished banker jumps off the financial institution's rooftop, on the night of the victory celebration. But, under those circumstances, was Jochen's death a suicide or was it a premeditated murder? Eventually, as the markets react violently, it's up to Tom to shed light on this baffling case--even if he has to sacrifice more than he is willing to give. Can he get to the bottom of it?
