The Domino Effect
by Davis Bunn
-From the inside flap-
Esther Larsen, a top risk analyst at one of the country's leading banking institutions, is becoming more and more convinced that she has uncovered a ticking time bomb with the potential to make the 2008 market crash look minor by comparison. And as her own employer pursues ”investment” strategies with ever-increasing levels of risk, she becomes convinced she must do something. But Esther is only one person; can she stand up to an international conspiracy of greed? And if she does, will anyone take her seriously?
Every moment of indecision edges the markets closer to a tipping point – the teetering first domino in a standing row that circles the globe. And when Esther finds her voice, those she seeks to expose will not sit idly by. With global markets on the brink, and her own life in danger, Esther is locked in a race against the clock to avert a financial tsunami that threatens worldwide devastation.
Fiction...or today's headlines?
I started The Domino Effect excited to read another Davis Bunn book but also wondering if it was going to be totally over my head. The world of high finance is something I know absolutely nothing about, except that there are a lot of crooks in high places. I needn't have worried. Once again, Davis Bunn has taken a hard to understand topic ripped from the headlines and made it understandable for even someone like me. Readers will find a word of caution, some sound advice, and a touch of hope within the entertaining pages of a novel.
This Book received a 4.5 Bark rating.
Fans of Davis Bunn will NOT want to miss this financial thriller, but I'll give you fair warning...you won't want to start The Domino Effect unless you have an afternoon free and clear to just read...you won't be able to do anything else once the story has you in its grasp...
