About the Author

Mike Bogin lives in the Pacific NW with his wife of twenty-five years and has three grown children. Mike’s parents traveled extensively and worked abroad; their travels took him to sixty countries by the time he was ten. During his college years, Mike traveled more on his own, including time in Ireland at Trinity College, Dublin during his undergraduate studies. He completed his undergraduate degree at the University of California, graduating Phi Beta Kappa with Honors and Distinction. After spending a year on an island in Greece working manual labor and writing his first novel, he went on to complete his graduate studies at the University of Cambridge in England at the Institute of Criminology within the Faculty of Law. Mike’s Master’s Thesis focus, Anti-Terrorism, would not turn into a major industry for years to come. Mike has been active in real estate for more than twenty years, buying and selling properties and doing creative renovations. He farms wheat and grows grapes, making several distinct red wines from the hobby vineyard on the farm. Mike has written three novels and a screen play.

Format: Kindle Edition
This is a well written and very provocative novel, the title captures it all too simply. As you read this book, you can't help think that the concept is not so farfetched. The class distinction issue in the political theater and Occupy Wall Street movements, combined with the news this week about the disgruntled Goldman Sachs employee and the US Army sniper gone off the deep end, make Bogin's story all too possible. Highly recommended!

This was an unexpectedly fun read. I found myself cheering for the villain and enjoying Bogin's astute observations about society and the causes of our country's state of affairs. It would be difficult not to relate to the characters the author thoughtfully develops. Several times I found myself being emotionally affected by events in this book. I am impatient for the next book in the series.

My husband handed me this book and I thought it would be just another guy conspiracy-theory-revenge-fantasy thriller. It is not. Men and women with varied interests will appreciate this read. I was HOOKED one chapter in. I got really involved with and cared about the characters who are multi-dimensional and take different cultural points of view. The topic is timely and is not reduced to cliches. Rather, it is a well written and thoughtful exploration of wealth equality, stress and fatigue in the military, gun access, interpersonal relationships, political power and more. I read it in four days, finishing at 3:30 in the morning. I am recommending this book to all of my friends. It would make a great book club selection. I have to say that I love the totally un-PC title. The author did not pull his punch in naming this book. Good for him!

I didn't really enjoy this book...it could have been half the novel it turned out to be. Too many chapters that were worthless to the story and tedious reading. Never connected with the characters. Would have stopped reading after the first few chapters but I couldn't do that, I always must finish a story no matter how bad. And if you want to know why the killer was killing..you will still wonder after the end.

Started off with a bang, no pun intended, but the story just unravels. Instead of tying the characters together as the story progresses, it just drones one and on. In the beginning, the killer's thoughts are interesting; his setup, what's involved in the kill, the description of what happens. Then, after the bulk of the killings are over, the story WANTS to go off on related tangents, but the thoughts just jumble together. I found myself skimming a lot of pages. That is, until the mind-numbing errors: if I read "pouring over documents" one more time, I was going to scream. Pouring what? Hot coffee? It's PORING. Does the author or editors know the difference between "vice" and "vise"? You are reading along and mistakes like this are similar to a stroll on a sidewalk and you hit that bump that trips you.. what the heck was THAT? Who edits these books? A waste, couldn't wait to get it over with.

This is a police procedural with a great plot and great research. The action scenes were well-done. On the other hand, the book should have been severely edited, as it gets bogged down in details in many places. The characters, while well drawn, are somehow, for me, unfleshed and consequently a bit arbitrary in their actions. A lot of the characters' agonizing is repetitious. The author shows promise and can write, but needs guidance for focus.

Format: Paperback
When four rich Jewish residents of Nassau County, New York are gunned down at a birthday party, law enforcement agencies immediately fear terrorist activity. But, when other rich people, of all genders, religions, and ethnicities, start becoming victims of the mysterious sniper, they realize they have something far more dangerous on their hands – a motivated loner with a mission.
The killer, only identified near the end of the book, is shown to us through his first person thoughts and actions, and is the book’s main character. NYPD officer Owen Cullen, who happens to live in Nassau County where the first killings occur, is a co-main protagonist – a sort of plain Joe who is torn between his sense of duty and obligations to his family.
Action is non-stop and nail-biting as the NYPD and FBI race to stop the killer, the 00.1% worry about who’ll be next, and the media (some of it) turns the events into a circus.
I received a free copy of I Kill Rich People by Mike Bogin for review. With the exception of a few grammatical gaffes, typos, and formatting glitches, it is a well-written thriller that addresses profound issues. The author does a good job of keeping the reader guessing, and the characters – even the killer who is not identified until very late in the book – are full dimensioned people with whom many of us can readily identify. Although I didn’t think it necessary, the author includes some discussion questions at the end of the book that are, I believe, intended to make readers think more deeply about the issues raised in the story.
Issues aside, a good read that I highly recommend for thriller fans.

When I started reading this book, I was unsure. It seemed to have more of a "Guy" perspective than I usually read. But Bogin is a great writer with a sharp vision of current societal problems. This is something a little different (as the title probably suggests) that will leave you wanting to read the next.
