Stephen Frey must have friends in high places in the publishing world because this book was dreadful. There is not a single pleasant character except for the hero's wife, who has a very small role. I thought the book was mean-spirited, that the characters were caricatures, the plot ridiculous, etc. It's one of the worst books I've read in a long time!
Watchout for Ransack a massive data bank compiling all kinds of personal information. It is controlled by top political figures who are using it to advance their agenda. Bo Hancock, the adopted son, of an incredibly wealthy family is the prime character. He manages the multibillion dollar family investment fund. He is exiled to the West because of concern that he is just too smart and too honest to deal with. But, naturally he returns to carry on the good fight. This book is a fairly exciting read. But, Frey tends to write his key figures as being virtually unbelievable. They are just a bit too perfect. Past that point, it's a good,quick,exciting read.
