Potentially a 5 star - but missed the mark
on February 8, 2017
Good but would have been great with some editing. I really enjoyed this book - the plot was interesting and a nice change of pace from my usual mystery - I would categorize this as more of a suspense novel. My only suggestion would be tighter editing. There were many paragraphs that I just skimmed because the information did not effect the story. An example would be the back story to the love interest, Antonia. The fact that she is a widow and how she happened to be at the hotel he was staying at is relevant information. The rest of her past had no bearing on the story and was never brought up again. It was information not needed to advance the story. I realize that the author has a lot of knowledge of the stock market but going into the amount of detail he did was just confusing and not necessary again to advance the story. As fairly intelligent readers, we get the idea without so much detail - over and over again. Another minor criticism - why are all women described as beautiful, hot, etc. Are normal women not worthy of these characters? I know you are surprised I gave this 4 stars but the story was very interesting and kept my interest enough to finish it. With the above corrections I believe it could be a 5 star book.
