Another book that was just okay. I thought the story was good enough once it got going but the writing was a bit off. Too much description and not enough 'telling' of the story. I also think I was thrown off by the jacket cover. It looks like pulp fiction from the 1960's or something. I believe this is a re-issue but they could have put in more effort with the cover art. Maybe I wouldn't have been biased from the beginning in that case!

Even though I was chosen to receive this book as part of the LTER programme, I never received the book. I got the copy I read elsewhere. ( )

This is a dark and gritty crime fiction novel about a stock market insider trading ring at a powerful New York law firm. A bad boy drug addicted attorney recruits four men who work in the firm's print shop to provide him with access to the insider information. The scheme works well for a while and then the authorities catch on to it. What's worse is that the gangster who lent the attorney the start up capital pressures the group for more money. Things don't tun out well at all. There's a bittersweet ending, after a shootout.
The characters are well drawn although the first half of the book is devoted to introducing them and their back stories. This made it difficult to get into the main story. In the end most of what we learned about the characters was not relevant to the main story.
In the end, it is a "big heist" story without much suspense because the author laid down so many hints that things were not going to work out well for the inside traders. Aside from that, it is a creative play on the "big heist" story and was well plotted.
Note: I received my copy of the book as a LibraryThing Early Reviewer. ( )

Fifteen Digits - a good story skillfully told. Good character development, interesting characters. Slow at the beginning, I thought the background and build up to the actual crime was over long. That was quickly forgotten after the plot began to move along. The main character's love interest and her part in motivating the action of the plot was the weakest part of the book, in my opinion. The ending was a surprise. although hinted at early in the story. My preference is for a neatly tied up conclusion - maybe happy, maybe not. I'm leaning toward 'unsatisfied' on this one. Glad I read it. ( )

Now that was a ride. It started out a bit slow for me and didn't pick up until about halfway through the book when the pace and actual "crime" of the story begins. But at that point hold on because it's about to get moving really quick. Things go wrong for these characters really quick and then it just gets worse. Santora does a good job of really establishing each and every character and their story and you understand why they do what they do. ( )

I loved the TV series Breakout Kings and was really disappointed when it was cancelled. I haven't read Slip and Fall, but intend to purchase it, especially after reading Fifteen Digits. What an amazing book, and one that I found very difficult to put down. The characters are everyday people I think we can relate to, people who aren't privileged in their life style or education. Every character is fleshed out in this book, not just fillers. I think Nick Santora has written a fabulous book and I look forward to any and all future books he may write. ( )
