This was the first book by Frey that I've read, but it won't be the last. This book was spellbinding thru out. Glad I found this writer. He does for finance what Grisham does for law!!
Stephen Frey must have been in a big hurry to finish this one. Likewise, his publisher must have needed it fast. That's the only plausible reason something so unpolished could have gone to press. I like Frey's premise, but his character development, plot structure, and writing style are amateurish at best. I challenge anyone to track the point of view in this book! In addition, Frey manages to offend most female readers with supposedly high-powered women characters who are obsessed with pleasing a man. And the ones over age 35 are terminally depressed about their fading looks. Please! Frey makes Grisham look like a literary genius.
Takeover was his first book I read, this one is even better. Twists and turns, quick fun reading
