Louis Salinger is an Interpol agent who has ties to Scotland Yard and had a mysterious exit from their ranks. He has been attempting to find dirt on a believed corrupt bank, The International Bank of Business and Credit (IBBC), which he believes to be funding arms and over throwing governments in nations around the globe. Working with him is the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office which will help them bring the company to trial do to its ties to New York. Everyone that has gotten close to the over turning stones at the IBBC has ended up missing or dead, and after an informant talks to a District Attorney’s office rep, Salinger watches him get out of the car, walk 100 yards and collapse to his death. Just hours later, the informant ends up dead as well and Salinger and another representative from the Attorney’s office, Eleanor Whitman, begin in earnest to try and unravel this bank and its power. Their investigation takes them all across Europe and to America as they uncover the pieces one at a time that might help them bring down the IBBC and expose it for the corruption it is full of.
