    Found Money Review

    Although I must admit when first picking up the novel Found Money, I was a bit disillusioned by its title author James Grippando completely changed my initial impression. What seemed at first to be nothing but an unrealistic, money oriented novel was in fact an adventurous page-turner filled with action and unexpected surprises. Just before Frank Duffy dies, he tells his son Ryan about 2 million dollars he has hidden in the attic. All Ryan knows about this money is that his father had obtained it through blackmail, but it was apparently ¿well deserved¿. Never having seen this ambiguous side to his father, Ryan Duffy is left alone to solve the many mysteries of his father¿s life, nonetheless deal with the tremendous loss. In the midst of all of this, greedy family members are demanding their share of the unexpected inheritance, and do not understand Ryan¿s need for answers. There biggest concern is not what happened to Frank, but rather how much money they are going to receive. Amy Parkins on the other hand, a single, self- sufficient mother receives a mysterious package at her doorstep with 200,000 dollars in cash. Even though that money could benefit her tremendously, Amy knows something is up and wants to get to the bottom of it. Could this money have had anything to do with her mother¿s suicide 20 years ago? Could Ryan¿s father have lived a double life that no family member knew about? Could both parents be part of the same entangled mystery? The questions are endless however the only thing both characters know is that somehow their lives are connected in ways much larger than expected. Never having met each other, Amy and Ryan set out together on the ride of their lifetime, both trying to figure out the many skeletons there families had been hiding from them all their lives. Although the entire process is one of trial and error, they both find out shocking facts about there families neither one of them were expecting. Putting there lives on hold, the two demand answers and are willing to go to any extreme to really find out what happened. They prove to be a dominating pair, and are resilient towards any information thrown there way. What makes this novel most adventurous in my opinion was that right when you think you are on to something, Grippando changes courses drastically leaving you guessing right until the very end. He gives you all the clues to get you thinking one thing, and then from one second to the next, he changes it all. His adventurous writing style is truly a gift, and I highly recommend any of his books. Found Money is without a doubt one of the best books I have ever read, for it is an emotional mystery which keeps you hooked on the entire time.

    Definitely recommend !!

    My sister introduced me to 'James Grippando' books and I'm glad she did. 'Found Money' was just another one of his wonderfully written Mystery/Crime stories that keep you captivated, yet have just the right touch of added humor. I thoroughly enjoyed this book (as well as others written by him)and will continue to read James Grippando. You've just got to love a good mystery !!!!

    Suspenseful New Find

    I grabbed this book on a whim, not expecting much. I spent the next two days unmovable from the couch. James is an awesome writer. Found Money shows the seedy side of all in the family with twists and turns on every page. You'd be second guessing until the very end, and bam your thiking no way. Another book of his 'Under the Cover of Darkness' is a book of his that makes you wish you weren't brunette, reading the book alone at night. A must read!!

    The story is based upon an interesting premise of two people receiving large sums on money, without a return address. These two people, Ryan and Amy, are complete strangers. They are determined to find out where the money came from. They stop at nothing, not caring if lives are lost in the process. Not caring if people are hurt by their pasts. I don't believe anyone would go through the lengths they did to find out where the money came from. They go up against someone evil, who is as determined as they are.
    The story became like a tennis match, watching the ball go back and forth between the two players. At times, the story moved quickly but most of the time it was slow.

    Found it entertaining

    This is a novel you will not want to put down. There are so many twists that your head will spin. At the end, when you are catching your breath, you'll say wow. The author, James Grippando, has won me over. I have read one other book of his, The Informant, and now I plan on reading more.
