Incensed by an economic policy that allows banks to create money out of nothing and collect undeserved interested on it, twenty-four year old Tyler Madison is on a mission to expose the clandestine operations of the U.S. Central Bank. After he is injured in a suspicious road accident, his reclusive mother steps out and realizes his life is in danger and the good guys and bad guys are not who they appear to be. When Tyler teams up with an aspiring presidential candidate, dark forces gather to shut them up...

5.0 out of 5 stars A gold medal for Gold Street! March 23, 2012
Format:Paperback
Who would have thought that a suspense novel about the Federal Reserve would be so intriguing! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and couldn't put it down until I finished it. It was especially nice that the author used a mother who may have been weak in the past but one who used her instincts and became a strong woman by the end. Although I am in the financial industry, it was very informative about the Federal Reserve and its role in our economy. I especially liked the quotes at the start of each chapter that show that the government turning over the Federal Reserve to private bankers has been questioned since the beginning. The book makes me want to learn more about the Federal Reserve and I can't wait for the next book!

Gold Street is so out of my normal genre, but I'm attempting to broaden my horizons by reading things with a political slant.
I must say Kathy Kale writes beautifully and I respect an author who has a sharp editorial staff - even those self-pubbed ones who have literary friends help edit.

As one who was raised in Lake Jackson, this brings to mind a certain elected official who ran for president, but is well known for his desire for an external audit of the Federal Reserve and an end to it altogether.

I get a tad depressed reading about politics since we all know the middle class folks are pretty much over a barrel, and the situation has spiraled into one that may not be solvable.

I didn't enjoy this as much as I thought I might, but that's only because it is the truth about politics rolled into a fictionalized novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars gold street February 10, 2012
Format:Paperback
Kale wrote a good novel. Politically accurate with information about our federal reserve that all Americans should know!!! I think this would make a good movie and hope someone in that field picks it up- fast page turning story from beginning to end. We all need to be more conscience in America with the $$$ trail- so let's wake up America!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not much of interest July 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The intensive rant about the Federal Reserve at the beginning of the book left me uninterested in the story. Add to that the petulance and immaturity of the protagonist, and it tipped me over the edge. About a quarter of the way through, I deleted the book from my device. There are other, much more interesting, stories to read.

So, why did seven other reviewers give this book five stars? Are they friends of the author? Most of the reviewers have not reviewed anything else. One has reviewed only two books, both by this author. And one has reviewed several books and given them all five stars, so doesn't seem to be very discriminating. Two of the reviewers had the same misspelling: griping rather than gripping. What's going on here?

GOLD STREET ISBN: 9780983686606, Pollux Press, by Kathy T. Kale is a thriller structured upon the contentious attitudes and opinions that exist with respect to the importance and even need for existence of the Federal Reserve Board.
Tyler Madison, son of a conservative Texas Senator with whom he no longer equates, has been seriously affected by his young sister's demise. He has left college, becomes involved with two computer `geniuses' and writes a blog against the existing economic system, specifically blaming the Federal Reserve. He is injured in an accident and his identification is discovered days later only through an anonymous call. His mother Jill, flies in, he recovers and refuses to stay in the hospital, returning to his rooms shared with his friends. His blog attracts an increasing number of readers and he eventually attracts the attention of a presidential candidate with explosive results. His activity also adversely involves: his mother who already is carrying a heavy psychological load and is a recently reformed alcoholic; Alexandria, his medical student sister; Blaze, his father who incidentally has a former wife, Rebecca and daughter who aid in his campaign; his aunt Juli an efficient, opinionated, successful financial adviser. Additionally active in the mix are Juli's unusual butler/man Friday; Jared, a shadowy questionable FBI agent who has a history with the family and constantly is popping up; another questionably helpful agent, some police, a bag lady, and a couple of sinister individuals.
The author has done a remarkable job of weaving these varied characters into an intriguing web and simultaneously presented a quite knowledgeable picture of the down side of the Federal Reserve System. The book is recommended not only for being an appealing thriller but as a stimulating discussion of a contentious economic program.

Ms. Kale prefaces her story by praising a number of individuals, books and movies very critical of the Federal Reserve Board (the "Fed") and the dominant role it plays in the establishment of this country's economic policies. For good measure, she includes at least one famous and/or provocative quote at the beginning of each chapter to remind the reader that the Fed is BAD for US!

Jill Madison is the "voice" of all those who are ignorant of the Fed. Jill is the wife of the "senior Senator from Texas", Blaze Madison, who is fighting for his political life. The election is only three weeks away when the Madisons receive a telephone call informing them that their 24 year old son, Tyler, was run over by a car two days earlier and lay unconscious in a hospital in New York. Happy 50th Birthday Jill!

Jill rushes to her son's side. As he recovers, we learn, mostly through a series of conversations he has with his mom, that Tyler is the passionate "voice" of all those who know EXACTLY what the Fed is! He slowly educates his mother (and you and me) that his facts are irrefutable, AND that his being run over was NO ACCIDENT! Jill fears for his life but cannot convince Blaze that the threats are real, nor can she convince Tyler to abandon his support of a third-party candidate for president who has gained much support after publicly embracing Tyler's ideas.

The book is written in third person narrative, but from Jill's point of view. Thus, the reader is privy to Jill's many concerns during the nearly three week roller coaster ride beginning with her 50th birthday and ending the day after the election. Who wins the election? Who knows? Who cares? The story is captivating and believable!
