Kings of Providence

Far below a street in Rio, a building’s foundation collapses. In China, an apartment block caves in. The deadly accidents aren’t much more than passing headlines for Paul Hewitt, a Wall Street broker carving a career out of million-dollar deals.

But business suddenly gets personal when a Manhattan subway tunnel collapses. Paul uncovers disturbing connections between the accidents, but the deeper he digs, the more the official explanations just don’t add up.

His search leads to a shocking discovery: millions of tons of glass and steel are sitting on an environmental time bomb.

Faced by a conspiracy of silence he races against time to expose the truth while the power brokers will resort to anything—including murder—to protect their interests.
