      Nina Steel leads her team into this mystery that begins with the most unlike of objects...a fishing lure. The lure brings them face-to-face with heart stopping action, undreamed of terrors, and an old enemy with an attitude. Banking on Torture takes you to a new level of international banking. Prominent bank officials are being kidnapped and then tortured for their bank's secret access codes and passwords, allowing terrorists to gain entry through a particular bank's computer security system. Once past security, the terrorists can transfer money from any account in that bank to another account in any another bank...anytime, anywhere and in whatever amount. Genetically engineered Nina Steel leads her team into this mystery that begins with the most unlike of objects...a fishing lure. The lure, with some strange characters scratched into it, brings them face-to-face with heart stopping action, undreamed of terrors, an old enemy with an attitude and even a little romance. It also introduces them to four other terrorist bounty hunters. Three of whom, who are working together, hold the key to this whole enigma and the fourth, who is working alone, has her own deadly agenda. These four other spirited terrorist bounty hunters not only take on Nina Steel and her team, but are striving to confront the same bank-robbing terrorists Nina is after. From running gun battles in the streets of Chicago to the hauntingly, beautiful Caribbean, follow Nina Steel and her genetically engineered counterparts as they weave through a web of intrigue--desperately racing a clock counting down to certain death while struggling to solve seemingly unanswerable questions: Can these other terrorist bounty hunters be trusted? Or is a final conflict with them inevitable? What, if anything, can be done to save the kidnapped bank officials from a tortured death and the world's banking system from total collapse? Or is it already too late?
