I have read all of Andrew Gross's books and I find it hard to say which is the best. I realize writers are supposed to give us better writing as time goes on but Andrew Gross has consistently given us great books since his first book. "Reckless" features Ty Hauck as he changes his vocation to a financial firm having decided he wanted to try something other than police work. Reckless is also very much up-to-date regarding the world financial situation with many banks and large financial institutions having loads of troubles causing some to close their doors and others to absorb huge losses. Were these loses caused strictly by the economy or were they "helped" by some rigging of stocks and other assets? When several break-ins occurred with murders in each one, some became suspicious that the break-ins were not really that but were deliberately acted out to get rid of the financial people in those houses. The police were accepting the killings as normal high-class neighborhood robberies with things gone bad causing the killings. One of those killed had been a very close friend of Ty Hauck's several years ago and he started questioning the killings as he wondered why was this woman killed? Merrill Simons was a well-known socialite who had just gotten a divorce from Peter Simons who was Chairman of Reynolds Reid, one of the largest Wall Street financial corporations. Merrill is now in love with Dani Thibault, who was a well-known financial player in many areas of the world. Merrill met Dani and was charmed by him so much that she fell hook, line, and sinker for him. But after being with him for some time she became suspicious of this "perfect" man. She went to the Talon Group, Haucks's employer, and asked if they could help her obtain information about Dani, thus bringing Ty Hauck into the case. Ty had spent many years on police forces from bottom to top and he missed police work but he also enjoyed his position with Talon. When he was called into a meeting and introduced to Merrill, he was requested to help her out in finding information about Dani so she could put her fears behind. What comes next takes Hauck around the world to check all the information about Dani's past employment, bogus names, crooked deals, and much more. This information opens a broad investigation not only about Dani but also his past cohorts and present contacts. "Reckless" delves into the world finances and those that control them. While some of us might think some of these manipulations exist in our present world, after reading Reckless your eyes and mind will be opened quite a bit as to the many questionable things we hear about in our news today. A terrific fast moving story. Andrew, you have done it again with a terrific suspense story.

A murder in a quiet neighborhood in Greenwich gives ex-Greenwich cop Ty Hauck pause when he discovers that one of the victims was an old friend. Now he's up against some pretty heavy hitters as the plot thickens. He teams up with desk jockey Dept. of Treasury Fed Naomi Blum who discovers a plot that threatens to destroy the US economy and as they travel farther out of their comfort zone and across the globe the threat escalates and pretty soon they find themselves in the crosshairs. Andrew Gross is no stranger to hard hitting crime thrillers as he shows in his first two explosive novels staring Ty Hauck, his plots always amaze me how he takes something contemporary and spins it to use in a crime spree. His dialogue is to the point and direct without being blunt, it's descriptive without being overly wordy and yet it's effect on readers is visually stimulating. His characters are fresh and alive well developed and three dimensional this is never more apparent than in his protagonist Ty Hauck who's life we learn a little more about with each episode and we unwrap his many layers. His supporting characters are equally entertaining and use their time well to add to the story. The villains are truly the worst sort that humanity has to offer, and as their crimes become apparent you wish the worst on them with every page you turn. Get ready for the biggest, meanest, highest roller coaster ride of this summer, get ready for action, adventure, suspense and just a touch of romance. Get ready for a nail biting, stomach churning, edge of your seat page turner. Get ready for your next MUST READ - RECKLESS!

That would be a pretty short book, wouldn't it? Here Andrew Gross, in his follow-up to the excellent Don't Look Twice tries to bring us in on financial scandal, you know, the kind that is ripping the headlines these past few months. He would have us believe that the top leaders of our financial system, would engage in skull-duggery to undermine out system for their own financial profit. This far-fetched scenario makes it hard to accept all that happens in Reckless, but Gross does a good job of creating some bad guys, a few heroes, and certain amounts of action and even violence along the way. The book is a little clunky at times, and the financial schemes are, by their nature, complicated, but by the end the reader realizes that not all bankers are our friends, and some of them have even infiltrated government to pursue their own interests against ours from within. If it weren't for honest firms like Goldman Sachs, why, I might even be worried for the state of our country.

This was a fast pace, exciting read! You have to pay attention to every detail or you could loose something.  I loved this book and honestly, this is the first book that I could re-read down the road and enjoy it just as much.  I really makes you think about how corrupt people can be.  I recommend anything by Andrew Gross, you will not be disappointed!

Once you start reading, its going to be hard to put the book down. The series is great and I hope A. Gross continues publishing it. I've only been reading for about a year and its books like this one that are keeping me reading. Retired, in Texas.

Hard to put down. Love Andrew Gross

This is a review so I will be brief and to the point. (No long boring "mini" version of the book). I highly recommend reading this thriller. Andrew Gross has a great style of writing and well thought out plot. Suspenseful, fast paced. The financial melt down described in this book, parrallels to the recent financial melt down that just occuried in our country. It is chilling to think that one individual with so much power could cause such a dissaster.

Loved this book with financial intrigue. Very believable considering the recent showing of banking ineptitude in our society. Hard to put down...lost some sleep over the book but loved every minute reading.

This, the third in the Andrew Gross Ty Hauck series was a yawner. I really liked the other two, but maybe the subject matter (banking and financial crimes), did not keep my interest. I read a lot of books and this one took forever to finish...I kept falling asleep! Too bad.

I was really sad this was the last book in the Ty Hauck series (at least for now, hopefully). The story line has been great, this was a great finale.
