Series by cover
Jun 01, Stephanie rated it really liked it. This book was brilliantly plotted and riveting the way Frey built the tension and connected the intricate pieces of the world of high finance. He took us inside the mind of a venture capitalist, Christian Gilette and showed us how the man thought and how he did what he did--without boring me. Unfortunately Christian was the only character with any character. The women in the novel were very two dimensional and extremely unlikable, especially the woman with the biggest speaking part.
She was This book was brilliantly plotted and riveting the way Frey built the tension and connected the intricate pieces of the world of high finance. She was nasty whiny, shallow, and mostly behaved like a petulant child. And the worst sin is that she was not entertaining.

There was no chemistry between Christian and either of the two women he was meant to have chemistry with--I only know there was supposed to be chemistry because I was told repeatedly by every character in the story--another no-no. But that plot--fabulous! I needed to keep reading this book to see how everything fit together and I rooted for Christian all the way. In spite of the annoying female characters. And I will definitely read the next book by Stephen Frey. Shelves: suspense , publ , borrowed-library , series-christian-gillette.
