Excellent thriller that is artfully crafted, almost so well that you don't know you're being pulled along in the ever-increasing tension, suspense and action. This is Lender's best so far, as it's very tightly crafted and economically written. Good a ...more

Okay thriller by one of the more erratic writers I've read. Some of his books are terrific (Eye of the Needle) and some are boring (Flight of the something-or-other, I honestly don't remember). This came highly rated, and I had high expectations. Too ...more

Starting from the notion that Mace was sent to jail for two years after being doped up and forced to commit some robberies, I should have stopped reading. I didn't and it got better from there, but it is not up to the level of other thriller writers ...more

Excellent suspense story of Wall Street skulduggery that migrates to the world of the bankruptcy courts. Finn, the young protagonist, and Nick, the world-wise elderly Chairman, make a great team in taking on Jack Shane, the really nasty king of Wall ...more

A well-written hard-boiled sleuth story about a lawyer, Sam McRae, who champions the underdog in a suspenseful read with many twists. This is a superbly drawn character that has legs, so I believe we'll be seeing a lot more of her.

Trojan Horse by David Lender
Rate this book
Clear rating
I always enjoy finding a new author and this one looks like a keeper. Trojan Horse is a good, old-fashioned pot-boiler (not in the pejorative sense) that a Ludlum or Patterson (in his early years) would have written. The settings are global, as is th ...more
