Reading this somehow gave me a better perspective of how and what mitigating facts contributed to the great recession in the U.S. history. I can't help feeling insecure at the thought that the same government officials we elected, placed our trust in their hands to do the right thing, are the very same that played a hand in the capital markets crash and our present economic crisis...I shudder at the thought!
This maybe a work of fiction with the added murder mystery, twist and turn, greed, bribery and physical abuse, but still, it instills some fear that it is inspired by actual events that occurred in our country's economies downturn. And we have You, Mr. Joe Badal, for shedding some light what most of us Americans are painfully unaware of... that of the heavy-handed actions of Federal banks examiners exacerbated the situation. Great re-telling of factual events that is undeniably true, brilliant and well written that made all characters come alive, as if they are part of me, and I'm a part of them. I felt the pain and anguish, the love and support and true friendship, a lesson learned and I honestly did not want this to end.
I may have lost some sleep because I simply couldn't put this down, it is incredibly riveting! I also acquired some knowledge of our economic problem and great insight of the housing bubble and how badly damaged it is. I couldn't help feeling a sense of ill foreboding, ominous...what a sobering thought!
