To start off with, I have to share this gem. A Davis Bunn quote from The Domino Effect Page 91. It’s an interesting idea that resonates with me. I’ve been mulling a similar thought over in depth recently and I like the way he puts it.
“Most people live broken and fractured lives” Sir Trevor said. “And remain willfully blind to any chance they might have of healing and moving on.”
It’s a great thought and fits in with where I am in my head these days but it’s not at all what the book is about. The quote is in fact referring to a scene with the main character’s brother. He has been severely injured in a car accident and there are many theories around his lack of progress in healing. This was one of them.
Instead, the main part of the plot is full of intrigue, the dangerous kind.
For me, this was a story where magic happened. You know, like watching a movie that you are totally caught up in and feel like you are there living it with them. I had a hard time putting it down, read it in record time and then was sad when it was over.
A Financial Thriller That Will Keep Readers on the Edge of Their Seats
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. . . .
Definitely a five star read.
I just realized, I forgot to check for book suggestions today. See, I couldn’t tear myself away from this book and look what happened.
I’m not one bit sorry. I was having a good time.
