BROKEN TRUST: iRead Blog Tour and Giveaway

@InfoMaurin @Nouveauwriter  #thriller

This is a story about three smart, successful people who were once fast friends in college and have now been thrust together again in an unlikely, multi-layered investigation with far-reaching international implications and billions of dollars at stake. One is a forensic accountant for the SEC, one beta tests hardware and software for the US Department of Defense and the UK Ministry of Defense, and the third is a wildly successful entrepreneur, software developer and venture capitalist in Silicon Valley.

They get caught up in the hunt for a corrupt Swiss banker intent on finally unloading the last of the gold stolen by his father in World War II; a violent, narcissist leader of a Mexican drug cartel making his move to take over as the head of all cartels in Central America; and the daughter of a murdered Bulgarian arms dealer making the deal that will give her mother financial stability and get them both out of the increasingly unstable arms business.

The plot unfolds as financial crimes committed by insiders put common criminal activities to shame in a world where technology has increasingly insinuated itself into our lives to good and bad effects.

Cassandra's Review-  The dual authors must make this book such a great read.  I think they combine two writing styles and lots of hard work and turn it into this story that can put you in a place where you do not want to put the book down.  It can be a super fast paced read.  The characters just keep getting more involved and at the same time become more real in my mind as I read into the chapters. A great author can keep the suspense and plots coming and not only did this book have one great author, it had two!  If you are looking for a sad romance or fall over laughing book, this is not going to be right for you, however if your into reading a great thriller with just the right amount of suspense, do pick up a copy or enter to win below.
