Reece Hirsch’s book “The Insider”is a wonderful read and I recommend it with great enthusiasm. There's not much more that you ask for in a fast paced thriller than what Reece Hirsch has given us in this book. From the opening where a young attorney watched a fellow attorney plummet to the earth out of a multi storied San Francisco law office to the cold and dark parking garages near the ocean, this book was filled with suspense, terror, intrigue, and a bit of light romance. Hirsch struck just the right tone featuring Will, the young attorney working tirelessly to make partner in one of the big 10 law firms being pulled into the world of organized crime and the Russian mob. The situations for Will go from bad to worse and lead the reader through a maze of international intrigue, planned terrorist acts and simple acts of brutality and intimidation. Needless to say I will think twice when I ride a BART train, enjoy a drink in a darkly lit restaurant or have coffee in a Starbucks.

I really enjoyed this book as it is a quick read, a work of continual action and suspense and a story line with developed characters.

I hope that Hirsch continues to write more books with these characters as I am now invested in their lives and would like to follow their careers and enjoy the adventures that surround Will’s life. Thank you Reece for sending me this book and for allowing me to review this delightful gripping novel. It is a great book for all lovers of mystery, suspense and action novels and the background of San Francisco adds a setting for the book that seems to be a perfect fit. Enjoy.

It captured my interest immediately with the first scene of Will Connelly, a young San Francisco lawyer glancing out his office window and confronted with a harrowing sight. The action just keeps coming and I hope to finish the book today."
