House of Cards begins with the murder of the CEO of a financial investment Wall Street company. Detective Lou Martinelli is in charge of the case. During his investigation he discovers immediately who did it. You would think it is a closed case, but not Martinelli. As he investigates further he gets tangled up with international and local criminals and suspicious profit during a financial crisis.
Besides the fictional story, this book kept me thinking about what really happens behind closed doors between the government and the Financial Companies, and how their decisions as they pursuit their own agendas, affect all of us.
Ted did it again, as he creates a thriller out of true fact. The House of Cards kept me interested and guessing through to a surprising end. Definitely a page turner!
