The most prescient Economic Thriller of our generation! An incredible story of power, romance, revenge and international finance spanning three centuries. The issues could not be more timely!
Todd Wood’s economic thriller, “Currency,” spans three centuries and includes tales of pirates and America’s early leaders. “Currency” kept me curious until the very end. A unique page-turner. —Bill Gertz, senior editor, The Washington Free Beacon.
“Currency combines history, finance, romance and action into a timely and entertaining read on a subject that has serious economic and national security implications. My wife and I both enjoyed reading it.”
Hon. David M. Walker
Former U.S. Comptroller General
In Currency, Wood has pulled off a first novel that captures the reader with a page-turning adventure, while it addresses head-on the most pressing and intense global economic, military and political issues of our very challenging current times.
Wood’s real world experience on both Wall Street and at the center of the US Military Special Operations world, combine with his love of history and command of current global issues, to create a story that is as intense and gripping as it is timely.
Currency weaves the historical adventures of our US Founding Fathers who built the country’s early economic structure, with current day hero Connor Murray. Connor unexpectedly finds himself thrust into a world shaped as much by greed, betrayal and violence as it by heroism, loyalty, love and the quest for personal peace.
Fate forces Murray to navigate events that play out on the world stage. The United States’ current economic weakness collides with its international rival’s very real drive for economic, political and military influence. This collision produces an intense drama and adventure that is as scary as it is possible amidst the world’s current state of affairs and balance of power.
If you love a good adventure story on both the personal and international level – Currency is a must read. If you’re concerned about how the United State’s current economic challenges could play out for the country in a very real way – Currency is a must read. And if you want to be an early reader of a new author who has tremendous promise – Currency is definitely a must read.
“A Must read for anyone concerned about U.S. economic and national security. A page turner, I couldn’t put it down till I was finished.”
“I love historical fiction and this is one of those that sucks you in from the first chapter. I love books that make me want to go to wikipedia while I am reading because I am asking myself, “Is that really true? Did that really happen?”. Great story line – loved how it took place both in the past and present day. Once I started, I couldn’t put it down. Highly recommended….”
“If you like thrillers that are so well researched, you’d swear that you’re reading tomorrow’s newspaper, you’ll love Currency by L. Todd Wood. In-depth research teams up with extremely well thought out character development to bring a story that will keep you up nights. The only criticism I have on this book is that it wasn’t as long as I wanted it. i could have read this story for another month! Certainly worth the read! i think I’ve found a new favorite author!!”
“Read Currency in 3 days. Didn’t want to put it down. Great suspense and intrigue page after page. Loved the narrative, historical perspective and character and plot development. Great read! Just got Wood’s new book, Sugar. Going to start it tonight!”
“Currency is a great read and so plausible that I found it hard to put down. Many tidbits of truth are intertwined and keeps the story fresh and believable. I highly recommend this book.”
“I received my copy of ‘Currency’ in the mail yesterday. I sat down to do a bit of reading at about 10:30 last night before going to bed. I finally put your book down at about 3:00AM this morning with about 100 pages left, and finished reading it when I got up this morning.”
“Truly scary how close to real life it is.”
“This is the first 300+ page book I’ve ever read in one sitting. I was on an extended international flight and I couldn’t bring myself to put it down. The lead in to the story is completely captivating and I found myself in a whirlpool of increasing intrigue. Yes, a very entertaining book but at the same time…haunting, due to the real world implications concerning the future path of our nation. An easy read and a must read for someone concerned with the path the United States is taking. Amazing value from a relatively new and talented author. Wow!”
“This is the best book I have read so far this year. Frighteningly relevant to the current world climate ! Be prepared to lose sleep. L. Todd Wood is fantastic.”
