Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
In Elliot-Square's debut thriller, an entrepreneur's greed gets him embroiled with a high-powered--and dangerous--tycoon. Entrepreneur Nick Adams is on the cusp of the riches as the stock price of his software company, Adams Banking Solutions, soars. But all is not well in Adams' world. His company has been funded by Kersch & Co., a dubious finance company notorious for "pump and dump" stock schemes. Naturally, Adams worries his deal with the devil will backfire, so before this can happen, he cashes in his ABS stocks, hiding his new-found millions in a Swiss bank. Soon after, someone murders Adams' friend, finance investigative journalist Howard Wayne. Turns out, Wayne had information that could sink not only Kersch & Co. but the company's main backer, the infamous, evil Swiss banker, Gerhard Liebs. Peter Kersch, infuriated by Adams' stock dump, tries to oust him from ABS. Ultimately, Adams catches the attention of Dillon Rae, an FBI agent heading up a new division called the Taxation Repatriation Unit. Rae, wanting to make a name for himself, looks to bring down Liebs. Using threats of jail, Rae "convinces" Adams to help entrap the Swiss tycoon. There is much that is promising here. The plot is intricate and engrossing, and it's clear the author knows the stock trading game. And Adams, the main character, while certainly flawed, generates empathy. Too often, however, Elliot-Square's novel is undone by careless proofing mistakes throughout, such as misplaced quotation marks or commas. Moreover, Liebs is a villain more suited for a comic book than a novel--a man who contemplates his "next dastardly move." Similarly, unrealistic character attributes appear out of nowhere. Take for example, a car-chase scene at the end, when the reader conveniently finds out that Adams had been a "stock car driver in his teens." These flaws distract, but Elliot-Square does manage to build suspense. An engaging finance thriller foiled by plot flubs and typos.
