What would you steal if you couldn't get caught?It started as the perfect crime. Then it took a turn for the worse.

Charlie and Oliver Caruso are brothers who work at Greene & Greene, a private bank so exclusive you need two million dollars just to be a client. But when the door of success slams in their faces, they're faced with an offer they can't refuse: three million dollars in an abandoned account. No one knows it exists, and even better, it doesn't belong to anyone.

It's a foolproof crime. More important, for Charlie and Oliver, it's a way out of debt and the key to a new life. All they have to do is take the money.

But when they do, they quickly discover they've got a lot more on their hands than the prize. Before they can blink, a friend is dead - and the bank, the Secret Service, and a female private investigator are suddenly closing in.

Trapped in a breakneck race to stay alive, Charlie and Oliver are about to discover a secret that will test their trust and forever change their lives.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Meltzer capably takes on the theme of financial misadventures and hits on the main element that would appeal to the average Joe on the street: the idea of getting your hands on big money just when you need it...The plot zips along and nasty villains emerge from every shadow. With a likable narrator, Meltzer keeps the thrills balanced with easy humor, making The Millionaires an inviting suspense novel as well as an engaging charmer.”

    Barnes & Noble editorial review

  • “Scott Brick...plays two unappreciated brothers employed by a ritzy private bank who plan the perfect computer theft of three million dollars. When their efforts yield 313 million instead, the brothers are pursued by a host of characters—including the US Secret Service. Brick handles this clever but complicated plot with kid gloves. He plays the brothers, whose personalities are opposites, equally well and gives Meltzer’s story line a rich and exciting reading. His performance is one in a million.”

  • “Sometimes it’s fun to root for the bad guys, especially if they’re not all that bad. Meltzer...has a knack for keeping a story moving while still throwing in plenty of insider information...Good fun.”

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kitty | 2/7/2014

    " Okay, honestly, this would probably rate only 2 stars based on story alone. The main character has rather questionable ethics, which makes him hard to root for. He accidentally finds himself with the opportunity to keep a large sum of money that really isn't his - but that he so desperately needs. The book includes a nice little chase through Walt Disney World, though. As this was particularly fun for me, I had to give it 3 stars. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Murvin | 2/5/2014

    " It held my attention but I was expecting more of the inside DC stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kendar88 | 1/31/2014

    " Started out great - like a Finder novel. Then it got weird when people started getting killed. I found it difficult to get into for a while, and then finally found it's stride. It had some excitement and I was enthralled to hear the whole story despite the holes in the story, the butchering of computer operations, and reality. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Luke Bunker | 1/30/2014

    " Good, but is sometimes dragged out to unnecessary levels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat Phillips | 1/27/2014

    " If you believed you could steal a huge sack of money (not literally a sack) and it wouldn't even be missed, would you do it? If the answer is yes, be sure that others(especially big tough guys with big tough guns)don't have their sights set on the same sack of money. This book is just OK. It starts out like any of those "we can get away with this" crime comedies and ends up with a bunch of folks chasing around after each other---reminiscent of the movie "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" in Disney World of all places. Give it a chance on a day you haven't anything else to do. "

    " Sometimes it's fun to root for the bad guys:) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 1/25/2014

    " This was free of iTunes so I downloaded it and I'm really enjoying it. The thing is I have so many paper books to read that I always forget to listen to this one. I've never heard of this author before but the plot is good and it has a lot of twists and turns. Usually I have a super-short attention span so I'm psyched that I've been able to pay attention to this. "

    " Good plot twists in this one... not as predictable as a lot of the books in the genre, but the twists do unfold slowly (no huge surprises). "

    " Pretty dang suspenseful. Seemed to follow it like a formula for a Hollywood movie but I liked it. It had some language and voilence like a Hollywood movie too - probably PG-13. ha ha "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martin Gehling | 9/5/2013

    " good book set in Florida (Miami, Disney World etc.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pbwritr | 4/21/2013

    " Great premise. Two brothers think they're stealing $3 million from a dead bank account, but it turns out to be $313 million. All kinds of people know about the account and are after the money, and the way the money multiplied is fascinating. Really a very good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim | 3/6/2013

    " An interesting read and a weird & unexpected twist at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kevin | 2/28/2013

    " Great set-up, fun read, WAY too many creative dialogue tags. Nobody just "says" anything. They grunted, whispered, yelped, agreed, shouted, muttered, sighed their way through the entire book. But besides that it was a lot of fun, he typed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Coralie | 2/23/2013

    " I really ejoyed this book, how three people embezzled 3 million dollars from a bank & end up embezzling one hundred & thirteen million dollars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/29/2013

    " Expected better because I read "Dead Even". This one started off slow, picked up, then slowed down and picked back up again. Hard to keep reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dirk | 2/23/2012

    " Improbable, to say the least, but reasonably entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda Marcet | 7/17/2011

    " The book had an interesting concept, and I liked the fact that some of it was set in Florida, but there was a little too much "drama" for the plot to carry it all. This was the first book I read by this author, and I want to try another to see if I like it better. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Steph | 6/6/2011

    " I really just skimmed through this book- it seemed formulaic, predictable and really not that gripping... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Moira | 5/27/2011

    " Such a quick read that keeps you guessing and flipping pages to the end! Love, love, love Brad Meltzer! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarah | 3/30/2011

    " Could I get some wine with this cheese? One of the worst books I have ever read. I think the author was eavesdropping on a conversation between 8-year-olds when he constructed the dialogue for this story.

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pa | 3/10/2011

    " A fairly good suspense tale of high finance. Nothing special, but an OK read. "

    " I liked this book about two brothers who transfer money from an "abandoned" account into one that they will have access to. There are twists and turns and lots of action and it made for a very enjoyable listen. Learned a little about banking. "
