Good Short Thriller About The Aftermath of the Wall Street Crisis

  • Oct 29, 2009

+4

Pinter tackles the recent economic crisis that hit Wall Street and shows what could happen to some of the desperate individuals that lost their high paying jobs.  Henry Parker seems to stumble into an unknown world of these individuals.  After avoiding a crazed "homeless looking" guy, Henry finds out that the homeless guy was murdered and not only that but the guy was his unknown brother.  Add to that, is that Henry's father is the chief suspect.

Henry decides to use his investigative reporting skills to prove his father's innocence.  As the plot thickens, Henry realizes that he should not have avoided his brother as he had something important to tell him regarding the world he had been involved in.  It is a world where those desperate men are turned to we;; dressed criminals that carry briefcases and go to work for illicit means.

The book is very short and can be finished in one setting.  Henry is an intriguing character and there are several references to previous books that makes the reader want to scramble to find them.  The story continues in Pinters next book due out soon.  Pinter does a masterful job of sucking the reader into buying his succeeding books!
