Author Rick Strout weaves a thrilling tale of violence and mystery in his new book, Password. When an innocent man is murdered, the protagonists investigating his death will travel from the modern day cityscape of corporate New York to the ancient Mayan ruins of Yucatan to discover an insidious conspiracy involving vast sums of money and a cabal of ruthless killers at its head.
Strout's tale begins when Reg Reynolds, a junior associate with a small investment banking firm, finds out disturbing information within his firm and is swiftly silenced by the conspirators. His wife Claire, along with her friends, Denise and Jimmie Mitchell, do what they can to find his killers and uncover the reasons for his death. Meanwhile, BRick Mason, a private investigator under contract from a special group of investors, is also looking for the culprit who is stealing millions of dollars from his employers.
Separately, they begin to unravel the strands of a vast web of deception, and come closer to its center - to Yucatan, where the cyclopean remnants of the dead Mayan civilization lie. The evidence uncovered by the protagonists as they converge upon the ruins suggest that the answers lie there, but only the ancient Mayans know what truths await them.
With its exciting twists and turns, Password is a suspenseful murder mystery that promises to engross its readers by combining fast-paced and ruthless corporate intrigue with the riddles left behind by enigmatic ancient civilizations.
