Lee Vance is a first-time author, and he writes about what he knows best, the world of trading. This is not a book about venture capitalism, however, it's about a murder and the route taken to solving the questions engendered by that act. In the end, it's about solving the murder.
I sincerely hope the author writes more novels, because if they are like this one, he's in for a long and illustrious career. The plot catches the reader immediately and from that point on it's really hard to put down this book and return to life's realities. It was a great read from beginning to the very end.
The book was well written and kept me interested until about half-way through when it became unrealistic that someone could survive so many beatings, etc. I was disappointed because it had a lot of promise at the beginning.
Very disappointed, not much of a mystery but a lot of big words and mostly about Russia and high finance corruption and hard to understand, not much about a murder mystery. I'd probably try another one of his books but if like this one wouldn't bother with anymore.
