Graham Tempest writes fast-paced thrillers featuring British financial sleuth Oliver Steele and his American sidekick, Kathy.
His books have a common theme, ‘missing millions.’ These are the millions that greedy criminals and dictators, from Marcos of the Philippines to Qaddafi of Libya, steal from their rightful owners. When dictators are toppled, people often ask, ‘where is all the money?’ Much of it resides in the sunny world of tropical tax havens and secret bank accounts that Tempest writes about.
CASINO CARIBBEAN is set in London, Antigua and the Florida Keys. CASINO EXCELSIOR moves from a billionaire's luxury yacht in Monte Carlo harbour to a private bank on the fictional island of St. Lydia. A third book, due whenever the author can get around to finishing it, is entitled CASINO QADDAFI.
He sometimes fantasizes that, by pooling information on his blog and generally rummaging around, a vast financial hoard could be discovered, secret money in the billions. That could get interesting.
