Esther Larsen, a leading risk analyst at one of the country’s largest banking institutions, is becoming more and more convinced that she has uncovered a ticking bomb with the potential to overshadow 2008’s market crash. And as her own employer pursues “investment” strategies with ever-increasing levels of risk, she becomes convinced she must do something. Yet what can one person really do?
The markets are edging closer to a tipping point–like the teetering first domino in a standing row that circles the globe. And when Esther does sound the alarm, she wonders if anyone will take her seriously. But as public support grows for her ideas, so does the desperation of those whose conspiracy of greed she seeks to expose. With global markets on the brink, and her own life in danger, Esther is locked in a race with the clock to avert a worldwide financial meltdown.
This fast-paced suspense novel will make you wonder where the fiction ends and reality begins. . . .
I wasn’t expecting to like a “financial” thriller so much! This book made me think a lot about how our economy and banks work. Especially with the new scam that happened with Wells Fargo. I liked how everything linked together and everything was affected by one decision. Its crazy to think that if we do something differently one day that things could be totally different.
I liked that there was a little bit of a romance but it was more of a sideline than the actual plot. I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars. The author does a wonderful job of keeping things that seem complicated, simple. Its a little chunky but not hard to read. This was my first time reading anything by this author and Im looking forward to reading more of his books.
I would recommend this if you’re looking for something that doesnt deal with romance too much and more about something that could really happen. If you want to know more about this book visit the authors website at:
