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.

    "Much to do about nothing"

    Too Drawn out. Could've been three hours shorter. Disappointing ending. Narration was entertaining. Concept could have been great. Next time.

    "Made and Lost The Hard Way"

    What do you do when you intentionally steal 3 million but end up with 300+ million? Charlie and Ollie,brothers who thought they would just pinch a little bit. It's a dead account after all so no one will notice. And there is where their slippery slope ride begins but ends in a bloody fight for their lives. Completely enjoyable!

    Story
    "What a Wonderful Ride!"

    I just loved this book, period, and Scott Brick's performance was, as always, perfection. The storyline, with two brothers as the protagonists, a cast of questionable characters whose motives you're never entirely sure of until the end, and some goosebump-inducing villains who relentlessly chase our heroes, The Millionaires is pure edge-of-your-seat fun! This novel has it all...excellent character development, unique plot with the requisite twists-and-turns you'd expect from a great thriller, and wonderfully smart and witty dialogue.

    I loved the relationship between the brothers, and Meltzer does an excellent job of making their relationship seem authentic and engaging. They aren't really the kind of guys you'd expect to conspire to stealing $3 million dollars but given the unique circumstances behind the money, it hardly even seems like a "crime" in this case. In fact, as one of the peripheral characters points out, there's only two kinds of "perfect" crimes: 1. One in which the criminal dies; or 2. One in which no one even knows a crime has been committed. The brothers are banking on the latter. But, of course, as these things have a way of doing, it goes awry right out of the gate. The action is fast-paced, relentless, and you won't want to put it down.

    As far as the performance, Scott Brick is one of my most favorite narrators, and he was the perfect choice for this smart, sexy novel. He's got fantastic material to work with here, and doesn't disappoint.

    Story
    "Slow, rather tedious but still not bad."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The pacing.. went far too slow for my tastes.


    Would you recommend The Millionaires to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, I wouldn't. Most of my friends have the same tastes as me and would feel the same way that I do about it.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was really slow in my opinion and a lot of it was bogged down with bickering between the characters. While I don't mind that usually, too much of it gets on my nerves. And I started to get irritated at how a lot of the characters thought or reacted to things. I understand the book ins't catered to me but it's just one of the hang ups with this book for me.

    "Fun story – Don’t expect depth."
    If you could sum up The Millionaires in three words, what would they be?

    This book is a roll-a-coaster, but with very few surprises. You can see the twists and turns chapters ahead of time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Millionaires?

    When they go scuba diving.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Same Scott - He always does a great job. Sometimes there is more to work with.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    This is worth a listen. Fun and hopeful.

    "Complicated, improbable plot."
    What did you like best about The Millionaires? What did you like least?

    The pace of the plot sustained interest, while plot was imaginative but unlikely to ever happen.


    Would you recommend The Millionaires to your friends? Why or why not?

    NO


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is good enough to keep one listening, while I would not have finished the book if reading.


    Could you see The Millionaires being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No

    "You have to pay attention while listening"

    This book is amazing and I love the performance! The only downside is I like to listen to audiobooks while cooking or cleaning or driving and this particular book has so much going on that it's hard to multitask.

    Story
    "Too much detail?"

    I've heard about Brad Meltzer's political books, I have two paperbacks on my "too read" shelf. Thought I'd check him out based on good reviews and Scott Brick's narration. I enjoyed the story for the most part, but some "scenes" went on forever with detailed descriptions of say, "turning something over in his hand" which just felt like "filler." I also balked a bit at all the types of "glances" that were exchanged between the characters, not just a feeling or emotion, but (again) detailed information like a conversation. I wanted to find out what happened next so I kept with it, but compared to a novel that uses well-crafted prose to advance the plot, this was a bit more in the "fluff" category.
