Ett lustigt sammantr ffande, att l sa denna bok direkt efter Ghostman av Roger Hobbs B da har samma grundf ruts ttningar en ensam protagonist som lever utanf r samh llet ska l sa ett brott utan att blanda in r ttsv sendet Men det finns en stor skillnad Ghostman l mnar efter sig en bismak av psykologisk oh lsa, medan Silas Cade i denna bok r befriande normal Ghostman vill vara ensam med sina vers ttningar av klassikerna, medan Cade emellan t blir frustrerad ver de kravet som ett anonymt liv st ller ibland med humoristisk ton, som n r han f rs ker h lla reda p alla sina anonyma kontantkortstelefoner och hans id med att markera dem med f rgad tejp inte fungerar.N gra exempel p denna medvetenhet Ibland m ste man lita p m nniskor Man kan inte st ndigt ljuga och samtidigt uppr tth lla n gon form av m nskliga kontakter En relation som har n got som helst v rde kr ver rlighet, vilket kan vara orsaken till att jag inte har s m nga s 139 140.Cade, till skillnad fr n Ghostman, r ocks en idealist, vilket r ett trevligt drag N r en kompis undrar vad han blivit inblandad i, svarar Cade Korrigerar felaktigheter G r v rlden till en b ttre plats Det jag alltid g r kanske hade de sista resterna av mitt samvete f tt nog tiil slut Hur som helst f rv nade det mig att jag blev s f rbannad Det Blacktail hade gjort var helt enkelt ondskefullt Och h r var jag inhyrd f r att f slut p det Jag fick allts betalt f r att g ra det r tta s 145 och 150 I den h r boken f rs ker han l sa morden p olika finansh jdare p Wall Street Historien r t mligen rutinartad, men underh llande, och skildringen av finansv rlden r bra, ven om vers ttningen brister h r och var alla finanstermer r inte helt korrekt versatta, ibland spelar t ex ordens form en roll man s ger t ex g l nga i en aktie, inte att g l ngt och m nga termer anv nds p engelska eller svengelska s en del termer har faktiskt versatts i on dan Dessutom blir referenserna till filmen The Terminator ganska komiska, n r vers ttaren visserligen hyfsat korrekt d per om begreppet till F rst raren s 190, 201 Ska man vara riktigt petig borde Terminator i s fall vers ttas till Avslutaren Avslutningsvis, s r det en sp nnande thriller, om n aningen banal Och slutet verkar ologiskt hur kan han s ka upp samma tjej igen, om han f rst m ste l mna landet f r att g under jorden Kanske han bytt identitet och utseende, men om n gon r ute efter honom, r det v l logiskt att de spanar p hans flickv n, och kan ta honom oavsett nya identitetshandlingar Och han r ju endast borta ett halv r.Som sagt, en bra thriller med en sympatisk hj lte, b ttre n Ghostman, men knappast of rgl mlig eller unik L tt sommarunderh llning, helt enkelt. I adore this book Okay, okay, so my brother wrote it but I like to think that I m objective enough to know a thrilling read when I see one, and this is one fantastic story It might help to have your MBA in hand before reading this financial world killer thriller, but maybe not A good seatbelt would help as well since author Mike Cooper, once a financial executive, starts fast and keeps the pedal to the metal all the way to the end There is one stop well, at least a pause for a little sex along the way, but that will be anticipated by most readers on first meeting of the principals, so this is not a spoiler alert The plot involves the systematic murders of Wall St bankers, often before Silas Cade can get his claw back from them That is the term for getting back money that was invested in a fraudulent deal before it can be buried in the slush that washes around the Street Eventually, the serial nature of the killings is tracked, the responsible parties identified and it becomes a race to find other targeted bankers before they become victims Silas Cade, a battle hardened enforcer of various sorts, a pseudonym and the world s greatest asset to the cell phone industry, is the chief tracker until he becomes one of the targets He, along with the comely financial blogger, Clara, find themselves dodging gunfire and even RPG fire as the baddies, led by a guy who has a fantastic scheme of manipulating stock prices by murdering bad hedge fund managers here s where the MBA would come in handy One almost funny scene occurs near the end of the novel as hedge fund managers who might be on the hit list or not, all arm themselves with guns they do not know how to operate, gather in a ballroom and, at the first threat of violence, open fire to protect themselves As one of the participants observes later, when the carnage starts to settle down, everybody had the chance to take shots at people they didn t like and have the resultant murders covered up in the general carnage So much for conceal and carry Cade is a wonderful protagonist, ex military as he is, trained in martial arts and marital ones as well, changes weapons, phones and identities in a flash, is always just enough behind the bad guys to create tension, and is a survivor For a potential series hero, that s a quality to be desired For action lovers, a perfect summer treat Just open to page 1, take a deep breath and you re good for a day or two.
