Georges Benay's Nomad on the Run


Georges Benay’s thriller, Nomad on the Run, is a spellbinding page-turner set in the beautiful and exotic country of Morocco. Eric Martin, a Toronto based international banker, becomes caught up in a web of deceit, greed and conspiracies. 

When Eric opens what he perceives as a junk email, he is caught up by his own greed. The message states that there is a 30% return on investment upon making a mysterious trip to Eric’s ancestral home of Morocco, regardless of how much is invested.  Upon making this investment, Eric becomes involved with unscrupulous people, launching him into danger, taking readers with him on a suspenseful journey in which Eric must live life as though it is a careful balancing act between life and death.

Nothing is as it seems and Eric finds himself between a rock and a hard place when it comes to who he can trust and who he cannot. The one person that appears to be able to help Eric sift through this mess is the President of the bank offering the exorbitant return, Jeff Oppenbach; however, he does not always seem as he appears. Is he a key conspirator in the scheme to terrorize the global economy or is he justly trying to save his bank from becoming a victim of the same plot? When a bank employee named Valerie joins the mix, the question of who and who cannot be trusted only becomes more difficult to discern.  One thing does become apparent: he must determine the truth before it is too late. His discoveries will be what ultimately determine whether he will survive a rich man or die. 

Greed is said to be one of the seven deadly sins and Benay hits every aspect of it. In Nomad on the Run, Benay’s character of Eric Martin keeps readers on the edge of their seats as he tries to unravel this web he has been caught up in.
