Great book. Fast read. Watch out Mr. Patterson, Mr Bessler is comming up behind you! Hope there is a next book as the style of writing is clear and you don't have to be a banker to enjoy it. Thank you for this story and the way you told it.

After picking up this book, I'll bet you will have as difficult a time putting it backdown as I did. It is an extremely well written story of intigue, bank fraud, political corruption, drug and gem smuggling, murder and mayhem. All being delivered in a more sophisticated environment than usually expected. And, if that alone is not enough, the author simultaneously and skillfully entertwines the personal and sometimes highly antagonistic relationships which are, to some degree, present in every extended family which spans three (3) or more generations. A real "Thriller With A Heart." the author also leaves the distinct hint that a sequel may be in the works. It is a well thought out and well told story, and should be on your "Gotta Read" list for certain. I believe Mr. Bessler's star is just beginig to rise. ~ Dennis Staer ~

Traces of Greed is non stop from page one. I raced thorugh this book and was continually focused on what would happen next.The writer has done a great job intertwining a thriller with informative behind the scenes knwoledege of the world of banking, regualtory influence on the banking world, and how some would feel they are above the law. The main characters are brought to life in this book by the writer as if he has known them for years. Absolutley well done. Looking forward to the next release by this guy.
