Overview

Enticed by money-lots of it-Steven Renner joins the newly formed Shank, Ernie & Busher stock brokerage firm in New York. Because of Busher's law degree and securities license, the firm believes he's the best candidate for the job. Steve feels he has nothing to lose by listening, taking a friend's advice, and trying a new endeavor. He doesn't know that the firm had been started with the intention that it would notoriously fail.

When partner and broker Arkady Shank earns an enormous profit for one of his clients, Steve becomes suspicious and begins to make inquiries. During his investigation, he learns that Arkady may be tied to criminals who seriously injured his father, Joseph, a New York City policeman. As Steve digs deeper, he's named as a person of interest in a murder investigation. When his enemies wind up dead, more trouble comes his way.

A grand jury holds Steve's future in its hands. It must decide if he is a victim who has been framed for securities fraud and murder, or if he is a con man who executed a brilliant scheme to exact revenge on those who seriously harmed his father.

    Overall good read, liked the plot, liked the writing style. Would recommend as an entertaining, fast moving fiction set in todays time.

    First book I read by this author and I liked it, which is always a pleasant surprise. It moved well and I enjoyed the story. A fiction set in modern time, with a different twist, through the financial world instead of the detective / criminal justice world. Not as quick a read as a Patterson, but comparable to a Brad Thor. Always nice to find another author to read and would recommend.

    THE ACCOUNT

    The Account is a fast paced read that had me hooked from beginning to end. The author has created some very memorable characters that are easy to identify with. And I enjoyed turning the pages as Mr.Muecks story took me from a comfortable couch in Steve Renners parents home, to some of the darkest places in the heart of New York City. I would recommend this book to anyone. And I look forward to Muecks future endeavors.

    Brilliant and Intense! The work of a true writer...

    The Account is a brilliant, intense thriller, that starts out introducing a young man, Steven Renner, who has always seemed to remain at the cusp of his family's expectations. He is enticed by money, sex and a promising future, when a firm makes him an offer he can't refuse. After his suspicions become peaked, he begins to do some investigating on his own and becomes quickly engulfed by a whirlwind of crime and deceit, in a world where nothing is what it seems. Laced with sex, humor and an in depth look at the happenings behind a corrupt firm in the center of one of the world's largest financial districts: Wall Street, The Account not only makes us care about the characters, but it is filled with effective, witty dialogue and a progressive build-up that takes us to an explosively satisfying ending, with a surprising twist!

    Held my attention

    Interesting and believable characters. The plot built up at just the right tempo with a twist that I didn't see coming. Great beach book.

    Fun read. Great ending

    Got this book from a friend, I think he knew author, not sure, but it was signed. Seemed Wall Streety, which is not my thing, but in reality, it is based there, but not a book where you need to know that business. <BR/><BR/>Anyway, I really liked this book. I thought there were some extremely funny parts for being a thriller type of novel. And the end really suprised me. I was not ready for twist at all. Big thumbs up on this one
