First let me say this is not my normal kind of book to read, but after I read the blurb I was like okay I'ma give this book a try for sure. It seems a bit mysterious.
This was a story that I could put down and start reading something else then come back to it. I was not fully involved with the story being told.
With that being said, it was a good story overall. It revolved around 3 journalist who have been sent to investigate the allegations around the RNB. But I felt a lot of story kept mentioning if they were going to travel by train, plane, or car, and what they were going to eat for dinner. Yes there was a lot of investigating into who was after the RNB, and a little bit of mystery surrounding who was the person or persons involved. But it lacked a lot!
You have Tom who is going through a rough patch in his marriage, but we don't get any answers as to if they worked anything out. It leaves you hanging and wondering.
Sally, she is her own character who I gave props to as she made sure she didn't give in to Tom's advances. I thought that was great. Not much to say about her as she was not a full character I would truly remember. Except that she likes to find answers to what she is looking into.
To me it seemed as though the ending was rushed, there wasn't a lot of answers. I felt as though when Tom and Sally got their answer as to who was behind the bringing down of RNB nothing was fully done. It is like we have to speculate and I do not like that within a story being told.
Once things get going, the author does a solid job of combining the heightening action with the increasingly complex relationships between the characters. He really dives deep into Tom's torment.
I found the premise of an external attempting to tank a company's share price using negative PR to be interesting and plausible, although the damaging allegations are more subtle than one might think. Proof that the author is well-versed in the financial industry.
I had a few issues with the plausibility of the ending, especially the epilogue, but they don't take away from the book as a whole.
Worth a read for those interested in financial thrillers.
I can't say I liked the characters very much at first. In fact, I actually disliked them but they grew on me after a while. As the story continued I began to cheer for them, especially for the reporters.
Despite knowing little of the sophisticated corporate world, here in my unsophisticated rural wilderness half a world away, I could see clearly into the life of the characters in this novel and this helped me become totally engaged in the plot.
Early into the book I realised Zach Abrams has a gift for showing character. The description of the man with a heavy smoking habit and a woman with spunk, taking on a couple of baddies and bluffing her and her companion's way out of a bad situation, was some of the finest showing of a scene I've read. Great well written story.
This book has something for everyone... International travel, political intrigue, thrilling action, even a touch of romance, that will keep readers turning pages to the very end. The descriptions are just enough to make the scenes vivid, not so much as to make the story drag. It seems this writer has an intuitive ability to know how to keep readers on the edge of their seats. Well worth reading.
