Mike Cooper’s newest novel Clawback is a riveting financial thriller. Silas has been hired to track down the murderer of several investment bankers. He soon teams up with a financial blogger looking for her first real break when things start to get interesting. His initial hunch of who-dun-it doesn’t seem right. Now he is beginning to wonder if it is an inside job.
This was an intriguing read. Cooper’s character lives completely off the grid, and it was interesting to read how he manages to stay that way. Constantly paying in cash, having no permanent home, only having prepaid cells that can easily be tossed, made Silas a much more captivating character. It was also fascinating to learn about investment banking and how computers really control the trends of selling and buying. All and all making for a good read with an exciting conclusion.
