Broken Trust by Thomas Maurin Review & Giveaway

Book Synopsis:

This is a story about three smart, successful people who were once fast friends in college and have now been thrust together again in an unlikely, multi-layered investigation with far-reaching international implications and billions of dollars at stake. One is a forensic accountant for the SEC, one beta tests hardware and software for the US Department of Defense and the UK Ministry of Defense, and the third is a wildly successful entrepreneur, software developer and venture capitalist in Silicon Valley.

They get caught up in the hunt for a corrupt Swiss banker intent on finally unloading the last of the gold stolen by his father in World War II; a violent, narcissist leader of a Mexican drug cartel making his move to take over as the head of all cartels in Central America; and the daughter of a murdered Bulgarian arms dealer making the deal that will give her mother financial stability and get them both out of the increasingly unstable arms business.

The plot unfolds as financial crimes committed by insiders put common criminal activities to shame in a world where technology has increasingly insinuated itself into our lives to good and bad effects.

My Review
This book was interesting because it has today's technology mixed with a great background of drugs, money and greed. The three main characters are friends and they have been for some time. They know things about each others pasts, and past mistakes. I really liked the idea of three friends that are all successful. all know today's economy and technology. I was not sure if they would all end up with happy endings. Would their friendship last? This story also raised the question of technology and how much information is really out there. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
