What's this one about?
First corporate attorney Will Connelly's colleague hurtles to his death outside his office window. Within days, Will is a prime suspect in a murder, the target of an S.E.C. insider trading investigation, and a pawn in a complex criminal scheme involving the Russian mafia and a ruthless terrorist plot. Now, to top things off, he must ensure a deadly enemy doesn't gain access to the nation's most sensitive and confidential information-that has the power to do incalculable, irrevocable harm.
What did I think?
Its been a long time since I've read anything in the legal thriller genre and even then its been limited to John Grisham. I thought it was time for me to start expanding my reading repertoire and 'The Insider' was a great book to do that with. I really got pulled into the book within the first few pages, it tapered off for me a bit about 1/4 way through, but picked right up again shortly after. I was entertained by all the character, especially Will and Claire, and though I did figure out who 'The Insider' was this book was a great read! For all those people who are looking for a fast paced, quick legal thriller read, go get a copy of 'The Insider.'
How many stars?
