Publisher's Summary

A gritty thriller set in the world of powerful New York law firms, from Nick Santora, writer of the hit crime dramas The Sopranos, Law and Order, Prison Break, and Breakout Kings, and the nationally best-selling author of Slip and Fall.
Is it really insider trading if you've been an outsider your entire life?
Five men. Five walks of life. Every day they come together at the white shoe law firm Olmstead & Taft. But they're not lawyers. They're "Printers": blue-collar guys consigned to the dark basement of the firm and charged with copying, collating, and delivering the mountains of paperwork that document millions of dollars of sensitive legal secrets.
Until, that is, the five are approached by an ambitious young attorney who teaches them what they have: insider information. Together they make a plan: take the classified documents that pass through their hands every day and use them to get rich. They create a joint account to deposit the spoils. An account with a safeguard - each one only knows one section of the access code, which means that for all five conspirators, there's no way out. But as too much money piles up to go unnoticed, the Printers will discover there's one thing even worse than being an outsider: being in too deep.

What the Critics Say

"The tension is palpable as very bad things begin to happen to the protagonists, and the reader will race through the book to see what horrors the next page brings." (Booklist)
"Fifteen Digits reads like John Grisham and Martin Scorsese's nasty love child. Brimming with unique, indelible characters, it's a cautionary tale of greed, jealousy and vice." (Shawn Ryan, Creator and Executive Producer of The Shield)

a good story

This story was good to excellent, spoiled by a poor performance of the reader. Please listen before you buy. As to story: a group who work together decide to steal money, which they do with some facility. Eventually the SEC comes calling and greed takes its toll.

The narrator paused a LOT. He grouped words unusually and then paused between them. I had to try not to listen to him or it drove me nuts. I am not usually critical of the reader, but this one gave me fits.

The book itself is worth your time, but the narrator might put you off.

15 Digits Rates 4 Stars Overall

I enjoyed this book. The story kept my interest and I enjoyed getting to know the characters. It's not going to go down as a literary masterpiece but it wasn't meant to be. I typically listen to audiobooks during workouts and while driving and I found that I was always ready to push play and get back into the story.

David Collins did a good job with the narration. Each character had a distinct voice that I recognized immediately. I hold back a couple of stars on the story because I think the book ended a little too easily, a little to abruptly. But overall, if you're looking for a light story to "get away" for a bit I think this one is OK.
