This isn't a book I'd have picked up, except that I read Lender's Trojan Horse on a recommendation. The Gravy Train is set in a tough world with hard characters. Then you meet Finn, get to know him, and his new friend Nick, and enjoy a developing warm friendship. Then you meet Cassie, and wow! This is not your ordinary girl, or your ordinary romance. I've never read anyone quite like this guy. He writes guy books for girls! And he keeps you rooting for the lovers as well as the ones who wear the white hats! And his books have a message. Something here for us all. Buy it! Read it!

I read this after Lender's Trojan Horse. This little book shows the dark side of the finance game in a way I've never seen it. It's similar personalities to the original "Wall Street" movie. These characters are more realistically drawn, however. The story has good pacing and an artfully crafted plot with enjoyable turns. Buy it and enjoy.

This was an excellent follow-up to Lender's Trojan Horse. It's different in many ways, but his command of the Wall Street type is a constant. The finance is only peripheral to the story, so it didn't get in my way. I liked his characters, their dialog, the settings, the plot and the surprise curveballs. Buy and enjoy without question.

One of the most engrossing, educational and fun reads I've had in a while. A gritty, Wall Street story of greed, good and evil and even some romance. And a real-to-life romance. Not some flitty B-story, but one with some depth and complexity of character. But the main event is the clever, twisty plot, and how the remarkable Finn and Nick fight against greater forces. In the end, it's a real-life result.

This is Wall Street. You must read this if you are interested in the personalities that created the Global Financial Meltdown. I enjoyed the story, which is engrossing, the characters, who are human and in some cases touching and abhorrent, and the pace of the plotting, which is devilishly clever and painstakingly well thought-out. Read this. You won't regret it.

A fast read, and fast-paced. A nice story, wound around a really nasty villain and a team of a young MBA and an old man who's doing his swan song deal to save his company.
