    "This book gave me such an adrenaline rush that I stayed awake for 10-days straight after reading it...it's that good of a read. Corporate takeovers are serious business, no pun intended. I was on the edge of my seat with nervous anticipation, while reading the chapter about negotiating terms at a board of directors meeting for a major firm. Do they accept the offer or decline? I won't spoil it for you. Read this book!"

    "Where Angels Prey feels like a b-grade knock-off of something like Wall Street. A series of events lead the main characters on a globe-trotting financial crime thriller adventure that is both as by the numbers and plodding as you would imagine."

    "I never thought I would see a book described as a financial historical romantic thriller. But that's exactly what this is, it's a pretty interesting book that tells a story that many people might be familiar with. I read it as part of a book club and we all loved it."

    "This book has a very unique theme and set of genres that aren't typically combined. That alone gives it a major plus for me. The writing and the way this story grabs you really makes the book for me. Be ready for multiple twists and turns."

    "God I love this book. Such a page-turner. In a world of "bingeworthy" Netflix shows, it's nice to have a good old-fashioned BOOK that's worth binging. And although this was written way back in 2005, this financial thriller feels as timely as ever as Silicon Valley battles bubbles and Wall Street grows the inequality gap to historic levels."

    "This isn't really a thriller novel. It does have a story background in the financial topic, so it's not a complete miss. If you just want a story with a financial background, I think you'll like this book."
