Once all the explanations were out of the way, the story began in earnest, which kept me reading late into the night. I won’t spoil the book but I loved how it played out and enjoyed the very satisfying ending.
I will be reading more of this author.
The book is both an education about the causes and results of the banking crisis and an entertaining thriller.
This financial portion of the story is pulled right out of the recent headlines as it traces the very real problems that have come about due to changes in federal laws and regulations that were put into place over the past couple of decades. Rather than a dull recitation of facts and figures, this book puts the results of the crisis into human terms by creating the Winter family and their business that are caught in the downfall of their locally owned bank, the fictional Broad Street Bank of Philadelphia.
The story is more than just that of a bank failure. It is also a thriller with a very evil character, Gerald Folsom, at the center of the manipulations that cause the ripple effect of closing businesses and ruining lives. His character is a bit over the top in his evilness and in a good many of his actions, but his financial takeovers fit in with what can actually occur during bank sales and liquidation of assets.
The prologue clarifies the events leading up to the financial crisis we are in.The author provides very knowledgeable, insightful information regarding the manipulations which occurred causing the downfall of our financial system, and the regulatory actions by the federal government which caused so many consequences to our entire financial system. You will come away with a better understanding of how things got so out of hand.
The switching between characters was a little abrupt, but there were few grammatical errors. A very enjoyable read.
