About the Book

FOOTLOOSE is a series of short satires about offshore money, global politics, oppressive power and the art of tax avoision. As Charlie Smith meanders his way through our shrinking world, seeking his fortune and avoiding fame, we experience first-hand the complex financial and political challenges facing all of us today. Through Charlie's eyes, we see secrets locked away in treasure chests buried offshore, lately unearthed by powers bent on global regulation.

"From cover to cover, a great read. In Charlie Smith, Sharp has created a classic character, a sort of Everyman for the world of offshore finance."
Offshore Finance Canada Magazine

"With all the pressures of being exerted on the offshore world lately, FOOTLOOSE is a breath of fresh air. This book is bound to become an offshore finance classic."
