Revenge is a dangerous thing. We all know that hatred festering can lead to dark things. Michael Berrier explores these themes in Cash Burn.

I have problems with this book. Now, this is a fantastic read. It is easy, except when some technicalities of the banking industry come up—they are a little hard to follow. It’s just that this book is…unrealistic? Much of the plotline is very thin. I figured out some, but not all of, what was going on very early on. It was like Berrier made an outline of wha

An intricate plot and compelling characters, this book isn’t afraid to be intelligent.

I’m thinking Michael Berrier is to banking, what James Scott Bell is to practicing law. And that knowledge of the industry means there is a depth to the plot you don’t get with a lot of books. Which leads to the one issue I had with it—the banking jargon was just a little too complex for me, a little above my grade level. But as far as I’m concerned, that’s my problem. That’s not the book’s problem. (I would hi

This is not your mother’s Christian fiction. I am your mother’s (or grandmother’s!) generation, and I had a lot of trouble getting into it. I thought at first that was because of the jolting shifts between the diverse worlds of the two main POV characters—an up-scale banker and a back-street low-life. Not too far into the book we learn the relationship, but I still didn’t like either of the characters. And I definitely didn’t want either of them to succeed. Eventually, the momentum of the story ...more

VERY disappointing! While the story started out so well, it just got more and more unbelievable as the story progressed. Characters were predictible and cartoonish. The plot was extremely predictible and things happened that would not possibly happen IRL. The characters were so mutilated that by the end of the book, I really didn't care what happened to them. I really just wanted it to be over!! Too bad, it had such potential!! SORRY!

At first, I had a hard time getting into this book. It seemed like it was all over the place. As the pieces started coming together, I came to really enjoy it. I liked the short chapters and the minimized style of writing--a word is worth a thousand words. There were numerous uses of imagery that worked well for me, concise descriptions of place that always gave me a clear picture in my mind. The ending was a tad predictable. Overall, well done.
Virginia Hlavaty
I liked the book up until the halfway point. It just really fell off then. Just because I finish a book doesn't necessarily mean that I liked it that much. I just wanted to see what they did at the end.

Was not what I expected, but then that can be good.
Justine
Fun read with a twist I had not expected!
Andy
Bit predictable.
