I liked this book. It gives a look at the wild parties, rich bankers and jealousy before the crash. The main character is a flawed woman, dumped by her husband. She gets to the bottom of why the Board Members are being murdered. If only this happens in real life.
This book needs an editor/ proofreader. Unless you have patience for missing words, screwed- up punctuation & confusing, run- on sentences, i wouldn' t bother reading it. The plot & characters were not interesting enough to overcome the editing deficiencies. SS
A suspense story about the mortgage business before the meltdown. The strong but nail biting female character must survive working with some cruel stodgy bankers. She accepts a job as President of Nationwide bank to get away from the shame of her exhusband's cheating. What she does not know is she is being framed for murder. I highly recommend the novel. The writing is great. I highly recommend this as a general fiction, thriller, or informative story about the failure of the American Dream.
