Publisher: Harper

You can read the Goodreads summary of this novel here.

I don't normally pick up books like this, I have to be in a rare mood to read a thriller, but something about the Goodreads description intrigued me to enter the giveaway and lo and behold, I won.  This book is apparently third in a series, but that fact had no impact on the storyline at all.  It read like it's own, independent novel and it was a nice change of pace from what I have been reading lately.

When a friend from investigator Ty Hauck's past is murdered, he finds himself trying to solve the case and is thus drawn into a much larger mystery involving the collapse of the economy.  Together with government agent Naomi Blum he travels the world to find out once and for all what's going on and to bring justice to his deceased friend.

The plot line was intricate and could be seen from several different points of views of various characters.  It read like a movie and was definitely a page-turner right through the bitter end.  Just when you think things are winding down -BAM!- they're not and I loved that.  What's more, you can tell Gross is a student of James Patterson because of the chapter length.  I love short chapters, they really keep a novel moving in my opinion.  Overall, glad to have won and read it.
