Passion, Power & Sin is one story told in five books. A story of money, greed, scams, revenge and love!
The book starts aboard a 300 million Euro Super Yacht equipped with state of the art equipment owned by a reclusive Venezuelan billionaire, Ricardo Mayo. It starts with him committing a $353 million scam.
24 year old PR assistant, Heather Bancroft, is one of the people caught up in an elaborate scam. She starts to receive strange emails predicting the outcomes of things she can bet on, and once these predictions come true she starts to bet even more money so she can save her mother’s house from foreclosure. These bets take her around the world to Japan and dealing with the Yakuza, Kyrgyztan for a sports events (where she meets the love of her life Gareth, but she is already engaged to David) and then onto Istanbul to invest in stocks. She gets greedy and loses it all and ends up in debt owing money to dangerous loan sharks. She has quit her job in spectacular fashion, dumped her boyfriend and lost her mother and has nothing let, she now wants revenge!
She sets out to try and find out who is responsible for the con which takes her to Spain, Germany and France until she finds her man. With a new name, new passport and new look she now has to embark on a dangerous plan to get back her money.
Overall, a very gripping and compelling story with great characters that are brought to life on the page. A very well-written series of books where the pace does not let up from book 1 to the final pages of book 5. Filled with twists and turns that grab your attention and keep you reading.
The storyline is very absorbing with suspense and thrills and keeps you on the edge on your seat wanting more.
A highly entertaining read, it has to be one of the best stories I have read in years. I had never heard of Mike Wells before this novel but will be reading some more of his work.
I cannot recommend this enough.
