Josh Wagner, a securities dealer with a weakness for wagering on practically anything, treks across the world chasing buyers and sellers to dig himself out of a hole. But the promise of a lottery-like payoff becomes much more than the game of life and death it was, when he witnesses the murder of the buyer's mandate and becomes the primary suspect. He is teamed up with Alex Randleman, an experienced internet trader from Chicago, and together they begin a deadly search around the globe to connect the mandate, or representative, of a super-affluent but inaccessible prince from Dubai, with that of an aging fisherman in the Philippines. The Filipino claims to have knowledge of Yamashita’:s Treasure, a hidden cache of WWII gold, now valued in the billions. The strength of internet trading is governed by the weakest link or participant in a deal, as the unscrupulous Louis Barouche surfaces, not satisfied with remaining in his side-line position as an intermediary. Josh is forced to masquerade as the buyer’:s mandate, when he travels to Manila where the chain is broken. Even the special military unit of the US Army Department of Reclamation has a deep-seated interest as the chase is on for Yamashita’:s Gold.
