Years ago--when it was first released, I believe--I bought the small, paperback version of this book, read some of it with interest, then stopped reading it and gave it away.

Now, years later, having seen it in large print version, I picked it up.

Again, because I compared this book to David Baldacci's legal thrillers, my critique may be a bit harsh. But readers will find it interesting, perhaps enjoyable, to read about Tony Phelan's idiot children and how they squandered their father's wealth.

On the other hand, we have the details regarding Nate O'Riley's travel to Brazil. Other than almost dying from a severe type of fever (you'll have to read to find out which), the details regarding that aspect of the book didn't interest me as much as the financial details.

But then, I like reading about personal finance, so that could explain why.

Overall, not a bad book, and mostly interesting. The ending--which I won't ruin--surprised me. What happens to Troy Phelan's estate? You'll have to find out.
