Ashley is a cunning, brave, sometimes idiotic thief. She works with her best friend, Benjamin, who is the brains behind the heists. He's funny and smart and works very well with Ashley, even if he is just behind the scenes. There are also three other people who play a big part in the story. First is Hammond Buckland, the guy that Ashley and Benjamin are trying to steal 2 million dollars from. I expected him to be a rich, pompous jerk and I was really surprised when he was actually a down to earth person. Then there was Peachey, the assassin sent to kill Buckland. It was really creepy reading from his point-of-view. Last but not least there was the detective investigating a murder at the Buckland corporation headquarters that ended up right in the middle of everything going down. I really liked him even though he was working against Ashley. He was smart and very obviously a good guy.
Money Run is a rather short book and it's a supremely quick read. There's always something going on which makes it almost impossible to put down. The situations that Ashley gets into and the shenanigans that ensue are crazy and totally hilarious. There is some more serious stuff going on (I mean, there is an assassin) but it never weighs down the story. Money Run will leave you with a smile on your face!
Jack Heath's writing is nothing special but it's good. Also, Jack Heath is an Australian author and it's clear through his style of writing.Read more ›
Take two child geniuses (thieves in their spare time), one obsessed assassin, and the richest man in the world to create a compelling, completely unpredictable young adult thriller. Fifteen-year-olds Ashley and Benjamin have concocted a daring master plan: to steal billionaire Hammond Buckland's most precious belonging, hidden in the depths of his conspicuous corporate building. But Hammond Buckland has a most elaborate plan of his own - and none of them have counted on Peachey, the hit man with a determination to finish the job - at any cost!The beginning of a dazzling new series from Jack Heath, author of The Lab and Remote Control.
There are books that take you by surprise at just how much fun they are to read, how well thought out, how succinctly tied up at each step and most of all how nicely balanced each of the characters who inhabit it's pages come across to the reader. Money Run is just such a thrill ride in a genre that I do not get a chance to entertain myself with as often as I would like as my first love of paranormal romance seems to always take front and center on most of my reading.
Money Run is not your typical YA fare but a taut suspenseful thriller that takes place within a 24 hour time period and manages to weave together humor, action, mystery and more packed into a few hours of reading time within less than 300 pages!Read more ›
Money Run by Jack Heath is really the story of Ashley and Benjamin as they take on one of the most difficult jobs they will ever have to face. What was supposed to be a quick in-and-out turned into an intense game for her life as Benjamin tries to protect her from the sidelines. All they wanted was to steal the money that the billionaire Hammond Buckland appears to be hiding in his office building but it never turns out that easy. At least not this time. It only seems to get more complicated when an assassin is thrown in to the mix, determined to end both Buckland and Ash. Money may have been the prize but surviving is the ultimate goal. Once the story gets into swing, it appears that everyone is in a tangled web of deceit and someone is pulling the strings. Will Ash get out alive? What can Benjamin do to help save her from the fate that seems inevitable? How does Buckland play into the story and why does it seem that he is the one holding all the cards? Who is the assassin and who is the people paying him to do this job?
Ashley is the main character of this story, who always seems to be one step ahead of everyone else.Read more ›
