Not a bad read. Takes a little bit to get started, but once the action is rolling it's very interesting. Really makes you think about what you would do in if you had that sort of opportunity.

A tale of two brothers trying to hide in a world where every step you take can be traced. It started as the perfect crime. Then it took a turn for the worse.

Brad Meltzer, the author of the runaway bestseller, The First Counsel, is back with another edge-of-your-seat thriller -- a tale of two brothers trying to hid in a world where every step you take can be traced.

It started as the perfect crime. Then it took a turn for the worse.

Charlie and Oliver Caruso are brothers who work at Greene & Greene, a private bank so exclusive you need two million dollars just to be a client. But when the door of success slames in their faces, they're faced with an offer they can't refuse: three million dollars in an abandoned account. No one knows it exists, and even better, it doesn't belong to anyone.

It's a foolproof crime. More important, for Charlie and Oliver, it's a way out of debt and the key to a new life. All they have to do is take the money.

But when they do, they quickly discover they've got a lot more on their hands than the prize. Before they can blink, a friend is dead -- and the bank, the Secret Service, and a female private investigator are suddenly closing in. What invisible strings were attached to that account? How are the brothers going to prove they're innocent? And why is the Secret Service trying to kill them? Trapped in a breakneck race to stay alive, Charlie and Oliver are about to discover a secret that will test their trust and forever change their lives.

This is Brad Meltzer at his most electrifying -- a breathtaking, suspenseful stroy about two brothers chasing a dream that may cost them everything they hold dear.

I've never read a Brad Meltzer novel before "The Millionaires" and I honestly think he has a good writing style. Now, this particular book did not satisfy the entertainment value I generally get out of a book (a good one, at least). Three stars for a good use of language, but not a great storyline. (And what's up with the lame "We named our band after the name of the book" ending? That ruined it for me!)
