Quoz: A Financial Thriller


Quantum AI, corrupt central bankers, and the blockchain collide in a stock market supernova. The annihilation of the global economic order is just the beginning.

“As governments around the world seek to exert tyrannical control over currency, Quoz serves as a cautionary tale for what lies ahead. You’ve been warned.”

Trey Radel, Former Member of United States Congress


“Mattison knows what he is talking about. He brings fiction and finance together in a way few writers can. You won’t be able to put Quoz down!”

Massimo Paone, Former Chief Investment Officer, Populist Capital


Banking establishments are more dangerous than standing armies.

In 2027, AI has merged with quantum technology to take control of global financial markets. Operated by a mysterious Swiss bank, the revolutionary supercomputer known as ICARUS has promised the world a more stable economy, devoid of bailouts and volatile share prices. And it has delivered…until now.

When a data scientist working for one of the few remaining hedge funds finds disturbing trading anomalies, he suspects that markets may be on the verge of a catastrophic meltdown. But before placing big bets on stock market mayhem, his billionaire boss needs inside information from the financial genius behind ICARUS—Rory O’Connor.

Unfortunately, Rory has already had a meltdown of his own and now spends his days trading cryptocurrencies in the Caribbean. Meanwhile, a cabal of powerful central bankers orchestrates a sweeping financial coup that threatens the current world order as well as Rory’s self-imposed exile.

Will a global market collapse plunge the world into chaos? Ultimately, it’s up to Rory O’Connor and some unlikely collaborators to prevent an economic apocalypse.
