    complex and richly plotted crime drama - suspenseful and twisty

    "What had started out as a body theft had turned into a far-reaching crime; a conspiracy that involved counterfeit money, drug trafficking, stolen works of art and an intricate scam." This quote, taken from early in Chapter 19, effectively covers the basic premise of the plot - the main character, known variously as Barry, Greg and Sebastian, has decided to fake his death and make a new life for himself. However, to do that, he needs money - and what better way to make money than to run an intricate scam using lots of desperate people. The premise is clever, the plot full of twists and turns, and the author definitely knows how to keep up the tension, suspense and mystery. The characters, all flawed in some deep way, are mostly kind of jerks - there are exceptions, but for the most part they range from simply being unpleasant, down to being absolute scum. Of course, they all have their good points, too, and that's what keeps it interesting - seeing how all these people interact, react and live their lives is absolutely fascinating. Anyone who is interested in crime dramas, mystery, suspense and/or thrillers will likely enjoy this book a great deal - definitely check it out. I know I'll be looking for the forthcoming books promised by this author!

    Highly Recommended

    Electronic Crime in Muted Key is an international crime thriller of the highest caliber. Barry Carter, an unlikely criminal, plots an insurance scam of epic proportion. Author Nick Wastnage crafts a brilliant "winner take all" plot that brings the reader across the globe. The novel is fast-paced and delves ever deeper into the corridors of the unknown as Barry Carter struggles to stay one step ahead. With his "widow", a jaded lover, and authorities on multiple continents pursuing him, the reader is barely left with a moment to breathe. As intellectual as such well-know crime thrillers as Ocean's Eleven, this is a must read for anyone looking for the next big thriller.
