Book synopsis: Credit

Ryan Alexander is a young business analyst in London, dreaming of being a startup millionaire. He wakes one morning to find several million pounds in his bank account. What will he do?

He takes it and invests it... rather well, as it turns out. When the original owners of the money catch up with him, they're not sure whether to sue him or hire him... nor are the people who bungled the attempt to steal it from them.

The story explores the questionable credit status of modern society: our reality-media values, our virtual libertarianism, our media-propagated vices. What does credit mean in our hyper real age?
