Someone calls to her.
An evil man who is burning.
Surgeon Tori Taylor rules the operating room with a precision that makes residents feel faint, nurses cower, and colleagues take notes. But even with the honor of being a respected surgeon, Tori finds herself alone in her moment of desperation—dying on her own operating table.
Tori Taylor needs a heart transplant, but what she receives is far more than a donor organ. Lying loveless and friendless in the recovery room, Tori discovers that memories are surfacing in her mind that are not her own. Terrifying glimpses of murder drive her out of the world of medicine and into a homicide investigation.
As her ordered life grows more and more chaotic, Tori’s new heart begins to melt her icy walls from the inside out. This new heart of flesh is transforming her heart of stone, and there’s no going back.
‘Shock Markets: Trading Lessons for Volatile Times‘ by Robert I. Webb and Alexander R. Webb (FT Press) is available for FREE download on the Amazon US Kindle site. Just click here to download! Also at Amazon UK and Amazon CA.
Understand Today’s High-Volatility Markets: New Trading Strategies, Real Examples, Actionable Insights
In a world where 80% of trades are done by lightning-fast machines, and the news from China hits markets in New York before you can read a headline, trading has never been this dangerous—or potentially profitable.
We live in the age of shock markets, where sudden sharp changes are common, crashes are unavoidable, volatility is off the charts, and anything can happen. This presents great risk—and great potential reward.
Seemingly distant factors can massively and instantaneously impact prices in today’s deeply interconnected, high-speed financial markets. Shock Markets illuminates these catalysts, helping you plan and react to fads, fashions, bubbles, crashes, and market crises—and uncover profit where others find only peril.
Through detailed, moment-by-moment analysis, Robert Webb and Alexander Webb upend conventional wisdom about trading and investing—revealing surprising and little-known trading relationships:
• Why Gold lost money in the 20th century’s largest crises
• Which political actions trump economic fundamentals
• How videogame reviews create predictable, tradable shocks
• When a shock is just a shock—and when it’s the beginning of a trend
• Why humans can still win at trading
The markets are moving faster than ever before—Shock Markets keeps you ahead of the curve.
