Reviewed by Michele Tater for The Couch Tater Review
There is only one class in the community that thinks more about money than the rich, and that is the poor. The poor can think of nothing else. ~Oscar Wilde
Somehow the youth movement was elected to run things and the old government fell apart. RomaCorp then becomes the supplier of everything, but in order to get these goods you must have cash. Weber Rexell is always after the all mighty dollar, no matter what the job entails. Hence when the stuff hits the fan as he is working one such job, he takes on another opportunity as a data runner for the "greater good". He is not alone in this task and if it is successful it will change the lives of everyone. That is just a small look into the world that Jarrett has made. Want to see more, then get the book...
I found this action packed book a fantastic futuristic story. It is just a tease into the future Jarrett has created. The story is short, but the story line with in it is huge. The reader will be so engrossed with the events, that before they know it, they have reached the ending. Oh what an ending. It leads one to try and wait patiently for the next in the series to come out. (Hint, hint Mr. Rush). Written in a no nonsense voice with no long wind descriptions and explanations. Just a note: the concept of being "plugged in" takes on a whole new meaning and not what we know it to mean.
I've seen the words dystopian, cyberpunk, and noir tossed around to describe Rush's Chasing Filthy Lucre. I believe all of those terms accurately describe the story. It's a fast-paced, gritty novella that grabs the reader's attention from the opening scene of an underground fight club. Chasing Filthy Lucre is the first book in an ongoing series, and I can't wait to read more from the mind of Jarrett Rush. Keep an eye on Rush; I expect good things from him.
I eagerly anticipate discovering what will happen to these fictional, yet life-like characters. I know that this is only the beginning for the dominant character, Rexall, and his peers. There is absolutely more background to discover, questions to be answered, and challenges to overcome. This book did not leave me hanging in a useless wonder; it left me purposely awaiting Mr. Rush's next book.
What a great price for this book! There's no real reason not to at least take a peek!
I hope that, like the description says, Chasing Filthy Lucre is just the start, because I'm imagining that as Rush starts to develop his world, the work is just going to get better.
The plot and theme worked well with the way the main character was written. The chase for cash vs. idealism was well handled. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series!
There's a nice flow to the plot and best of all, at least in my opinion, the ending left me wanting more.
This world has stories to tell, and I look forward to reading them.
Recommended? Yes. Definitely worth a read.
