Money to Burn takes off like a rocket from page one and never slows down. Highly recommended.” — Christopher Reich, author of Rules of Vengeance

In this timely stand-alone thriller ripped from the headlines, bestselling author James Grippando (Lying with Strangers, Intent to Kill, Born to Run) explores a world in which the destruction of financial institutions and the people who run them can occur in a matter of hours—even minutes. Fans of John Grisham’s The Firm and the thrillers of Lisa Scottoline and Phillip Margolin are sure to love Money to Burn: a “perfectly mixed cocktail of dry wit, sophisticated voice, believable characters, [and] non-stop suspense” (Joseph Finder, author of Vanished and Paranoia).

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Slc-crk | 12/23/2013

    " A fun little book full of twists and turns. It used the recent Wall Street crises as a basis for a good old fasioned mystery. Grippando at his best. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe O'c | 12/14/2013

    " Very Good; a Wall Street hotshot finds his life falling apart four years after his wife of one day dies; his accounts are emptied, he's accused of murder and espionage, and just maybe his wife has risen from the dead "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 12/8/2013

    " I'll give this one a 3.5. It's the story of two Wall Street whiz kids who are caught up in a financial scheme and end up on the run. Lots of danger, young-couple-in-trouble action ala John Grisham, twists and turns to keep a thriller reader happy. An enjoyable read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cari | 6/23/2013

    " This is the first James Grippando book I have read, and now I think I will have to read the rest of his books. A great story even if I didn't understand all the wall street stuff as much as I would have liked. It was fun that the setting was New York, so I recognized the streets, etc. "

    " This is another one where I wish we could rate half stars. Although I really liked the book, I didn't get really interested until I was over half-way through. So, the first 200 pages dragged, then the last 175 or so just raced by. "
