Overview

Money to Burn by James Grippando

Money to Burn takes off like a rocket from page one and never slows down. Highly recommended.” — Christopher Reich, author of Rules of Vengeance

In this timely stand-alone thriller ripped from the headlines, bestselling author James Grippando (Lying with Strangers, Intent to Kill, Born to Run) explores a world in which the destruction of financial institutions and the people who run them can occur in a matter of hours—even minutes. Fans of John Grisham’s The Firm and the thrillers of Lisa Scottoline and Phillip Margolin are sure to love Money to Burn: a “perfectly mixed cocktail of dry wit, sophisticated voice, believable characters, [and] non-stop suspense” (Joseph Finder, author of Vanished and Paranoia).

I was hooked on this book from the start all the way to the finish. Michael Cantella is on a cruise vacation with Ivy and they impulsively marry on the cruise. They decide to leave the cruise to go sailing and Ivy disappears, apparently drowned and food for the sharks. Fast forward three years and Michael is remarried, fairly wealthy and one of the top traders as Sexton Silver, a large investment house. During a routine check of his porfolio, Michael discovers that someone has sold all his holdings at a loss and then funnelled all the funds to an off-shore account and then cleaned out that account. In a panic, Michael realizes he is the victim of identity theft. Michael tries to get this investigated but soon learns that his problems are just beginning as someone is doing their hardest to make Michael's firm go out of business. Not only that but they are making it appear as if Michael is behind everything and that he is lying about what happened to his portfolio. Michael's new wife wants a divorce and the FBI is interested in arresting Michael. The book is a non-stop thrill ride a minute and I couldn't put it down. It was like watching a silly movie (eg. American Pie) that you know is far-fetched but you find yourself compelled to watch. As I said what actually happens, is totally unbelievable to the reader and many explanations left me shaking my head. That is why I couldn't give it the full five stars.

Have not completely finished the book, but it is really getting interesting. Have always enjoyed Grippando which was the reason I puchased this book. It's a book to take with you while waiting for a doctor's appointment and then wishing the doctor is very late.
