In a world that clearly remembers recessions and housing market bubbles that we still see the effects of today, I thought that this book by Davis Bunn, The Domino Effect, would be an interesting read. The premise sounded like a good, thrilling movie — in fact, I vaguely remember seeing a movie that the book’s description reminded me of, but… I can’t remember the name of the movie, haha.
I don’t know much about this world — the world of finances, investment banking, stock market decisions, and the like. But I do appreciate that Davis Bunn is able to deliver a plot that isn’t hard to find through the technical jargon. I’ve found that with some books — it’ll be on a topic I don’t really understand, and then it ruins the book, but that was not the case here. An author who can sell me on a topic where I’m clueless is good in my books!
This is a suspenseful and intriguing book, and it keeps readers going — needing to find out what Esther’s next move will be, and how that will play out on the pages as you turn them.
I own another Davis Bunn book, it’s just been buried in my piles of books for a long time. I think it’s about time it finds its way to the surface of the pile!
