I picked this one up after hearing an interview with Grippando on Library Love Fest, Blog Talk Radio

http://www.blogtalkradio.com/libraryl...

on March 16th, 2010. He made the book sound too good to resist and I was not disappointed. As I rarely seem to have time to keep up with series fiction, Money to Burn appealed as it is a stand alone thriller by an author with a track record of telling a good story. Not only did I learn a bit about Ponzi schemes, Wall Street and the financial mess torn from recent headlines, I got whisked along in a fast paced read of greed and power. Grippando wrote this one in a year he called "My Least Favorite Year" after the death of his father. I read it in my own least favorite after my mom's death. She was a true Grippando fan. I know she would have loved this one and particularly would have been touched by the character Papa, the lead character's old fashioned dad, an ant among grasshoppers.
