Sixteen-year-old Jonah Lightbody is the youngest ever trader at 'Hellcat', a money making machine in the City of London. It's an adrenaline fueled world of wealth and power and Jonah is at its epicenter, wheeling and dealing alongside the most feared trader of them all: The Baron. But when the world erupts into the greatest financial crisis it has ever seen, Jonah is catapulted into the crossfire of a global conspiracy where money reigns, human lives are collateral, and anyone will sell you out if the payday is large enough. Now, Jonah will have to race to uncover the truth, a journey that will take him from the human zoo of Hellcat to the wilds of Africa. And he'll have to decide whose path he should follow: his father's or his hero's.
Dead Cat Bounce has all the action of Anthony Horowitz's Alex Rider series combined with the edge-of-your-seat pacing of The Bourne Identity, and the elaborate intrigue of a spy novel. It's the story of Jonah Lightbody and he's on a mission to save the world no matter the price.
