The Jackal's Share
"The novel is as much Raymond Chandler as John le Carré . . . Chris Morgan Jones has more than equaled his powerful debut." --The Observer (U.K.) A vivid and relentless tale of murderous corporate espionage, Chris Morgan Jones's The Jackal's Share follows the money through the rotten alleys of Marrakech and the shining spires of Dubai, revealing a Middle East as strange and raw as ever depicted. The story begins when Ben Webster, a London corporate investigator specializing in post-Soviet Russia, is hired by a wealthy Iranian philanthropist to clear his good name. Forced to investigate a man above reproach, Webster soon discovers that his master's past is actually a dense net of interlocking half-truths. As he closes in on the reality of the Iranian's fortune--and those who wish to destroy it--Webster learns he may pay for that knowledge with the life of his own family. Christopher Morgan Jones's newest book, The Searcher, will be published by Penguin Press on March 22nd, 2016.
