* * *   Reviewed by Mary Ann Smyth

Michael Cantella is fast becoming a high muckety-muck on Wall Street. But all is not as it seems. First, Ivy Layton (his bride of a few days) disappears from a sailboat in the Bahamas. Then, four years later and remarried, his financial world begins to dissolve. Oh, yeah. As this happens, he is accused of bringing down a high and mighty financial institution, a fall which affects thousands of stockholders.

Michael is not a happy camper as he tries to stay one step ahead of numerous people who pursue him, including the FBI. His current wife starts divorce proceedings and cuts him off from any of the money that might otherwise be available to him.

I have to admit, most of the financial dealings were a bit over my head, but the ramifications were fascinating. This poor guy seems so alone. The rest of the world wants a piece of his hide, while he knows he hasn't done anything wrong. Someone has his back, but he is unaware of this.

Bestselling author James Grippando has done it again. Money to Burn is his sixteenth novel. He sure knows the right formula for a suspenseful and exciting story. Even if the machinations of high finance are not part of your vocabulary, you can't help but read on as the plot unveils and you meet more and more people who should never be in the positions they are in.

Money to Burn is gripping, exciting and suspenseful, with even a touch of romance. You can't help cheering for Michael and hoping that all will end well for him. But you'll have to read this excellent book to find out.
