Okay, so Meltzer is an okay novelist. He's no Tolstoy, no Hemmingway, but he's easily the equal of John Grisham or Scott Turow, his contemporaries in this genre. I found this book to be interesting and adequately written. It certainly held my interest over many miles of highway driving. Scott Brick's reading was an asset, for sure. I recommend this one if you enjoy an easy read/listen while you're driving.

With "The Millionaires," Meltzer is finally hitting his stride. I like the way that he devises intricate plots within plots; but most of all, I enjoy his insider knowledge. In some of his other novels, like "The Tenth Justice," "The First Counsel," and "The Zero Game," Meltzer displays his (apparently) first-hand knowledge of Beltway politics. That impresses me enough; but, with "The Millionaires," Meltzer shows that he also knows a lot about high-level banking ??? and computers ??? and DisneyWorld! See if you can put those elements together. Never mind: "The Millionaires" has an ingenious plot that you will never guess. I recommend purchasing this audiobook, along with most of Meltzer's other audiobooks, with only two minor caveats: First, you should know that most of Meltzer's characters seem to be running on anger and hysteria, which annoys me a little, since I prefer it when my heros stay cool under pressure. Second, Scott Brick narrates all of Meltzer's audiobooks. Yeah, I know: Everybody else loves Scott Brick's narrations. And, I have to admit, Brick can definitely act. He has lots of accents and enough voices to distinguish the characters. It's just that VOICE. But never mind those minor quibbles. If you like thrillers, you will enjoy "The Millionaires."
