Reckless - Andrew Gross A first-reads win.

Reckless is a highly charged thriller set in the financial chaos of the current recession. Andrew Gross packs a riveting style that not only kept me at the edge of my seat but is possibly the only book that didn't send me in a serial yawn from words like "hedge Fund" and "subprime mortgage". The author has created two top-notched characters in investigator Ty Hauck and Naomi Blum and the two have some serious chemistry going on between these pages. Hopefully Mr. Gross will place these two together again but for now the reader get a roller-coaster ride through a plot of financial misdoings, high intrigue and murder.
