Keep Away from Those Ferrarisby Pat Fitzpatrick
Reporter Noel Byrne is about to die. Two snipers hold him in their crosshairs as he delivers his live report from the HQ of HiberBank in central Dublin. His first problem is they will shoot if he doesn't say exactly what they want him to say. His second problem? They both want him to say different things. Keep Away from Those Ferraris is the story of a country in collapse. A vicious gang of bankers and minor celebrities is desperately trying to salvage one last pay day from the wreckage of the Irish economy. Only Byrne can help them. Only Byrne can stop them. Follow him across the boardrooms, bedrooms and bars of Dublin as he tries to stay one step ahead. And remember that when billions are at stake you can't trust anyone. Not your family, your friends or the love of your life.

Fast moving and thrilling from start to finish Keep away from the Ferraris Noel is told, but when Maria Ferrari is a black-haired girl in hot-pants and vest who looked like a tall Andrea Corr it makes keeping away from the family very difficult. This story is based around the financial crisis in Ireland and kept me engrossed from the first page to the last. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and read it straight through (well in two sessions as I was told to “put that book down and go to sleep!”) Take my advice and read this book, or don’t and miss out a thoroughly good read.
