There is a new thriller writer on the block! The 500 is a fast-paced read, reminscient of The Firm by John Grisham. The book opens with a Range Rover and Sig Sauer in the first paragraph – need I say more?
Mike Ford grew up learning from small-time con men, one of which was his father. Leaving that world behind was at the top of his list and he had worked hard to get to law school and prove his worth. Mike, fresh out of Harvard Law School, lands a dream job with the Davies Group, a political consulting/lobbying firm in Washington, D.C. Everything comes with a price as Mike soon learns, and that price can be steep! It isn’t long before the Davies Group’s rising star, is enemy number one, and is being pursued by some of the world’s most elite criminals.
This book doesn’t really read like a first novel, which makes it that much more enjoyable and the plot is complicated enough to keep you interested. I recommended this book to my Dad – he loved it and anyone who likes a good, fast-paced thriller will find this book hard to put down.
