Financial markets crash to rock-bottom.

The Government is Taking Over!
To me, this is very relevant to the turmoil going on in the USA right now. It does remind me of conspiracy theories I've heard. There are a lot of interesting things that the author incorporates into this book. I think the angle of using a News Reporter as one of the main characters was a pretty unique feature.
One thing that surprised me is that the whole story takes place 15-20 years from now but the level of technology isn't as advanced as I think it should have been for that time period. For example, USB/thumb drives are quickly becoming a thing of the past but one made an appearance in this book? It would be the equivalent of using a floppy disk/cassette tape in today's time.
Interestingly, the author was also the narrator. I was actually impressed! I think there were a couple of character voice inconsistencies between character inner dialogue and outer dialogue; however, it didn't take away from the quality of the story. I thought it was an excellent performance and reeled me in just as much as the writing.
Overall, great writing and narration!
I received a review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Authors shouldn't narrate
The story was pretty good but could hardly get through the narration. It was nail scratching! Would much rather hear Kevin Pierce or the like. Authors should just hire a professional for such an important roll in forwarding their works.
