This is a book about Catherine Hooper (the girlfriend of Bernard Madoff's son Andrew), her incredible brilliance, resourcefulness, and all around "fabulousness". The narrator reads the story with the breathiness appropriate for a romance novel when talking anything Catherine. Her tone changes to one of utter disgust whenever discussing Mark (Bernard Madoff's other son who committed suicide) or Mark's widow Stephanie. I guess the narrator was directed to do so because Catherine's doesn't like them (?) but it is very disconcerting. Do not buy this book if you are looking for insight into the Madoff scandal or the Madoff family (as I was). I stuck with the book to the end hoping to find a bit, but it provides none whatsoever. On the other hand if you are interested in learning about how wonderful Catherine Hooper is, this is the book for you.

This book was really interesting, to experience the Madoff disaster from inside the Madoff family.
As compelling as their story is you still feel more sympathy for the victims of this horrendous fraud.

Good book, Good story wether you believe the Madoffs knew nothing about this ponzi scheme is a little hard to believe, but that's up to the individual listener to decide for themselves. The only downside to this audio book is having to listen to the author and narrator impersonating Ruth Madoffs queens accent it was so annoying I got to the point where I nearly stopped listening to it (but maybe that's my problem).
