Did not finish book. I couldn't get into it. JB

It is a well-paced novel so it is quick reading. There is enough character development that all the people feel real and you care about what happens to them. It is a little dated now but not to the point that it is no longer interesting. I wouldn’t call it heavy reading but it is entertaining. It has action, suspense and even some romance. There was a plot point added towards the end of the book that made the whole thing less believable to me but by then I was interested in knowing what was going to happen. There was also some weird use of italics. It put emphasis in some strange places and I didn’t know what the point of them was. But even with the few not so great points it is a fun read to pass a day or two.

I couldn't really get into this one. I love James Patterson but this book was kind of over my head. I think it would take someone with at least a little bit of knowledge about Wall Street to enjoy this book, and unfortunately I know next to nothing on the subject. I read 3/4 of the book and just couldn't make myself finish it.
