This book was recommended to me by the owner of a local mystery specialty book shop. I was not disappointed. Although the book starts out a little slow as characters are developed and some financial terms are explained, once it picks up it is difficult to put down. Who knew money laundering could be so exciting! My only small complaint is that the "romantic" are very cheesy. Fortunately, they do not last long and the action picks up quickly again. If you like Stephen Frey you will enjoy this book, though this one is more intelligently written.

First book by this author. Great. Once it gets going, it really goes... up to the very last page. Excellent read.

First in the John March mysteries. John March is a PI, who should be a banker given his family's lineage. Anyways, he has a dark past, lots of siblings, friends in high places and a new client who is getting blackmailed. Terrific Wall Street thriller. Took me a bit to get the money laundering techniques down, I'm not exactly a financial whiz. Enjoyed the chase in this one. Pick this up if you like a thriller with some meat.
