This book is like a puzzle, different characters are introduced and you don’t know how all the pieces come together, but they do come together and very compellingly. The time stamps before the chapters keep the excitement going. You experience with the Darling family what should’ve been a festive Thanksgiving weekend and instead you live the nightmare of how quickly your whole world can turn upside down. You meet many different characters and you have sympathy for them and how they got to this point. It really gives you the inside view of the rich and famous of the financial world.
While reading, I pictured many characters from the TV series “Dirty Sexy Money.”
I also pictured the high-society of “Gossip Girl” but a lot more sophisticated.
It makes sense that Bravo and Fox Television are developing the novel into a TV series; it will be very intriguing and I’m eager to see it come to life. The author was very knowledgeable in the financial world. All the characters were very real and when they were introduced you got a real feel of who they are and what makes them tick. I’m looking forward to reading this continued series, it's great writing.
