After thirty-five years on the run, one of the world’s most elusive corporate fugitives has been found.

 

In June 1980, following the mysterious death of Nugan Hand bank CEO, Frank Nugan, his New York-born business partner, Michael Hand, disappeared from a dank terrace in Sydney and hasn’t been seen since.

 

Author/filmmaker Peter Butt reinvestigates the notorious merchant bankers and their alleged links to drug traffickers, gun-running and the CIA.

 

In the process, he achieves what Interpol and the FBI failed to do. He uncovers Michael Hand’s new identity and traces the former CIA paramilitary officer-turned-rogue banker to a small town in the United States. You'll never guess what he's up to now!
