'Hidden Money' is a work of fiction that takes place in the international banking world.
Eric Landers is a top trouble-shooter for banks that need an outsider to deal with problems. Landers wants out of the game, but decides to take on one last assignment to help an old trusted friend.
Eric Landers travels to Tahiti as a bank trouble shooter for his friend, Harvey Cannon, the head of credit for the Pacific Division of Northern Trust Bank. Landers' assignment - to straighten out credit and loan irregularities that have left the bank and his friend in a dangerous position. He thinks it will be a restful vacation in paradise with people he loves. However the stakes go up when a Mafia hit man appears on the plane and two FBI agents meet him at the airport with tales of money laundering. When large amounts of money begin to appear in and then disappear from a certain questionable bank account, his challenge is to unravel the game, a deadly gamble where the stakes become his life and the life of the woman he loves, and he is forced to use skills he thought he would never have to use again.
A CASUALLY DRESSED MAN stood quietly in front of the receptionist in the first class lounge at Qantas Airways, Los Angeles International Airport waiting patiently while the blonde behind the desk finished her phone call. He was at least six feet tall with a straight posture. But there was something alluring about the man who stood under the long, dark, wavy hair, slightly balding on top. His age was middle to late forties but he could have been younger or older. Although he appeared relaxed, his eyes roamed the lounge area watching everyone, trying to locate his travelling companion.
From my own personal experience
This book was very engaging, hard to put from my own personal experience working in that world of deception. Where is the next twist? I kept asking. The author used an easy flow of different languages and cultures, making the characters believable.
By reading his books
The author presents the atypical circumstances in a fashion that allows the readers to feel as if they are on the inside of the scenario-a fly on the wall, so to speak. I walked most of my life with this man, and I am learning more about my father by reading his books. Thanks Dad.
This story had to be told
Gripping and hard to put down as the story was too close to the truth in the international financial centers. And this story had to be told from experience-and from his life.

|I read Hidden Money and really enjoyed it. You have an excellent wordsmith and just as good as Tom Clancy. Best of luck on really selling lots and lots of your books.

|Your books - Hidden Money and Leaving It Behind - are written in an easy going style with a certain American accent. The plots are developed early and kept me in suspense eager to find out what is happening inthe next chapters. Each chapter led quickly into a new guessing game with the suspense. Keep writing Dirk|

|I could not put this book down and read it in basically one day. It is an exceptional book and would be ideal for a movie. I will now purchase John W. McCoy's second book - Leaving it Behind. Exceptional rating. Kevin Collins|
