The Millionaires

Publisher's Summary

What would you steal if you couldn't get caught?

It started as the perfect crime. Then it took a turn for the worse.

Charlie and Oliver Caruso are brothers who work at Greene & Greene, a private bank so exclusive you need two million dollars just to be a client. But when the door of success slams in their faces, they're faced with an offer they can't refuse: three million dollars in an abandoned account. No one knows it exists, and even better, it doesn't belong to anyone.

It's a foolproof crime. More important, for Charlie and Oliver, it's a way out of debt and the key to a new life. All they have to do is take the money.

But when they do, they quickly discover they've got a lot more on their hands than the prize. Before they can blink, a friend is dead - and the bank, the Secret Service, and a female private investigator are suddenly closing in.

Trapped in a breakneck race to stay alive, Charlie and Oliver are about to discover a secret that will test their trust and forever change their lives.

    "If you like thrillers, you'll like this one."

    A decent thriller. The reader did a good job of bringing all the characters to life. If you like thrillers, you'll like this one. Personally, I find them like fast food: satisfying to fill a temporary void, but easily forgotten. The climax of this one, in Disney World, no less, was pretty unbelievable, but most thrillers demand that willing suspension of disbelief from us so I won't quibble.

    "WOW!...What a SHOW!"

    This is not just a book...IT'S A SHOW!

    I'll bet the biggest fan of this book is Scott Brick, the narrator. He reads this book as if he wants to share with us all the excitement and pleasure that he received when he first read it. Brad Meltzer wrote quite a gem, and Scott Brick made it shine with brilliance.

    Add this treasure to your audio vault...it's PRICELESS!

    "Schmaltzy and hard to swallow"

    I liked Meltzer's Book of Fate and was pretty disappointed with this one. No real surprises. Contrived. Really hard to believe when they get to Florida, especially having to do with the Mouse House. There's also lots of cutesy banter that gets old fast and Brick doesn't help with his over-the-top performances. The author jumps back and forth between first person narrator and omniscient narrator which is just plain annoying. Pick one, Brad.

    I'd take any Grisham novel before this one.

    "Interesting Premise - Suspend Disbelief - Go w/It"

    Scott Brick is fabulous and spoils you, as far as what you expect from narrators. He kept the book moving along. The premise and portions of the plot are interesting and yet it is so far fetched that I certainly wouldn't rate this as a 5-star book. 3 1/2 is where I wanted to put my rating.

    It's worth a credit and I'll be hopeful that Meltzer's next book is better. He has a lot of talent.

    "Wonderful!"

    This was this first BM book I read, and I fell in love with it. The love between the characters is what really draws you in. You can tell that these brothers, above all else, love and want to protect each other.

    They mistry itself is very intersting as well. There's a few twists that will catch you right off guard.

    This book was very very good, and I'd recommend it to anyone.

    "Good story – terrible narrator"

    I really liked The Millionaires. At least I really liked the story, but it was really hard to stay focused on the writing what with the narrator, Scott Brick, treating every sentence as a dramatic reading. I had to keep backing up to re-hear passages since in my annoyance I would start thinking of how a normal person would narrate it. What a Drama Queen he is. Author and story were great though. I would have given more stars if it were a better narrator.

    "Lame and wussy ending"

    I have read all of Meltzer books which were newer and the story lines great. This one started out pretty good and an easy read. However, I do agree with others on the charaters were a little lame and predictable. If I had read this book before I had Meltzer's newer one I don't think I would have read another one. I will keep on reading Meltzer his new ones are great. I recommend reading Meltzer's newer ones. I gave it a 3 because of some of the creative writing and Scott Bricks narration.

    "Plot is interesting the details are a bit weak"

    The book seems formulaic and tries to build suspense using simple writing tricks that I found tiresome after the third or fourth time he used them. I cannot recommend this book to anyone who is in banking or IT. The details of the caper are unbelievable to anyone who understands banking or the IT infrastructure behind it. For some one who is not technically inclined and looking for an easy listen that doesn,t require a great deal of thought this would be a good book. Additionally, I enjoy Scott Brick, the reader, but really like him reading the DeMille books.

    "Gripping!"

    Brad Meltzer does it again! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the extensive character development created by the author. I was on the edge of my chair with anticipation as the narrator read along. Oliver and Charlie were very likable characters as they brought us along into their world of banking.
