Viking Raid, by Matthew McCleery

Marine Money announced the release of Viking Raid: A Robert Fairchild Novel, the much-anticipated sequel to The Shipping Man: A Novel, by Matthew McCleery, President of Marine Money International and Managing Director of Blue Sea Capital. Both books are now available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble online.

Combining swashbuckling shipping adventure with corporate finance derring-do, Viking Raid follows the adventures of former hedge fund manager, Robert Fairchild, and archetypal Norwegian shipping tycoon, Coco Jacobsen, as they return to Wall Street to sell a $500 million Initial Public Offering – but end up wedged between an American shale gas wildcatter and the energy-hungry Peoples' Republic of China.

With The Shipping Man described by Forbes as "a great read," both novels have received considerable praise from Wall Street and the international shipping industry for providing an insider's view of two of the world's highest stakes and most globally significant industries:

"A gripping novel...Seamlessly woven into the plot are keen insights into the arcane worlds of Wall Street and Marine Transport. In view of the author's second resounding success, his readers will cry out for yet another book to complete the trilogy," – Wilbur L. Ross, Billionaire Investor; Chairman & CEO, W.L. Ross & Co. on Viking Raid.

"I enjoyed reading Matt's book. It captures the people, places and deals that make the shipping industry so great." – John Fredriksen, world's largest shipowner on The Shipping Man.

"It is very hard to marry entertainment with education – especially in the worlds of finance and shipping, but McCleery succeeds spectacularly in doing so." – Mohnish Pabrai, Managing Partner, Pabrai Investment Funds on McCleery's writing ability.
