By mixing together the world of finance, organized crime and savants, Marc Brem has come up with one thrilling potboiler in ‘Rain Fund’. Owned by Olivier van Dijk, this hedge fund is raining money on the investors; the savants use their mathematical genius to predict trading numbers and make this company a roaring success. Is it just a Ponzi scheme or is there something deeper than money that is involved? With dark secrets to keep, suspicious deaths, undercover agents and Mafia mobsters prowling around, who is the player and who is the pawn in this game?

Slick, edgy and fast-paced, there is not one dull moment in this book! Mark Brem pumps up the adrenaline and keeps it that way right until the finale of this lethal dance of fortune, from China to Latvia to New York. It boggles the mind to think of all that could take place behind something as simple as running a computer. This sinister trail is certainly going to keep you on the brink of your seat. The writing is crisp and flows seamlessly from start to end. For the safety of the readers, this book ought to come with the disclaimer: leave this book read half-way at your own risk. Unless you are Superman, you won’t be able to concentrate on much else until you have read the last page of "Rain Fund". The time has come for Patterson, Ludlum, Dan Brown et al to sidle over and make space at the top for Marc Brem.
