    3. It might help to have your MBA in hand before reading this financial world killer thriller, but maybe not A good seatbelt would help as well since author Mike Cooper, once a financial executive, starts fast and keeps the pedal to the metal all the way to the end There is one stop well, at least a pause for a little sex along the way, but that will be anticipated by most readers on first meeting of the principals, so this is not a spoiler alert The plot involves the systematic murders of Wall St [...]

    8. Why do we love those bad boys Silas Cade is the protagonist Anti hero of Mike Cooper s debut novel, Clawback He s a forensic accountant, of sorts Early on, he describes his work like this If I had one, my logo might be a green eyeshade crossed by a 9 mil.It s a small niche, though a necessary one, especially in economic times as difficult as these Straightforward accountancy is all well and good But sometimes you need someone packing a P226, not an HP 12c if you know what I mean What he means is [...]

    15. Financial thrillers aren t exactly my normal genre I actually needed to create a new shelf, because none of my existing ones were sufficient for cataloging this book I only read it because PB wanted to read something other than YA fantasy or adult romance, and was pleasantly surprised by how much I ended up enjoying it.I ll be completely honest, and admit that a lot of the financial stuff was way over my head I think it could have been explained better for the average reader or am I just less sa [...]

    18. first reads ARC Claw Back by Mike Cooper is a fast paced, action thriller that is a quick read Most of the characters were well developed The one thing I might have wanted to see was twists I found the story line to be quite straight forward In fact, by the time I was about 2 3rds of the way through, I could guess at the ending Sure the details were still a bit of a surprise, but I knew who it was and why they were doing all they did I also would have liked a bit explanation as to how the vill [...]

    19. I d rate this book 2 and a half stars to be exact I got this book through a First Reads giveaway.The plot summary and start of the book were very promising, but the story as a whole didn t quite deliver The business jargon got me a little bored after a while, and most of the plot and the characterizations of the characters and everything was just so predictable Everything about this book was on point and made sense logically, in terms of solving the case and whatnot , and the protagonist was lik [...]

    20. Loved it Thrillers are my favorite genre, so hard not to love it I m ready for number 2 in the Silas Cade series Really ready A very quick, easy read that I was eager to return to each time I had to put it down I thought of Reacher many times during the various escapades Not a dull moment that I recall.Silas Cade is EX military, and still ever ready for that next combat situation A clandestine, hired gun running in the underbelly of Wall Street, until he meets a little hottie named Clara She s h [...]

    22. This is definitely an interesting book, but it took me what felt like forever to get into it I m going to be honest, I think financial intrigue is a little bit smarter than I am I m not sure if the problem is that Mike Cooper assumed the average reader is smarter than they actually are or if it s just that I m dumb about stuff like this Either way, the first part of this book left me so completely lost Once the book got going, however, WOW It got amazingly good and suspenseful It became worth th [...]

    23. i tend to steer away from financial thrillers because it is a bit foreign to me but the book sounded interesting enough to wade through wall street and i am so glad i did mike cooper has a uniquely dry sense of humour that was interjected in some of the most unexpected scenarios even with my lack of knowledge in this arena i found the writing easy to follow and the book hard to put down when one gets to the end of a book you kind of expect it to tie up the story and keep you wanting this one di [...]

    24. This book is just bad The plot moved along quickly enough, but if you ve ever picked up a mystery book you ll have no problem guessing what is going to happen within the first few chapters I kept reading, thinking surely it couldn t be that obvious, but unfortunately it was I also struggled with the writers style The fight scenes were overly descriptive and went on for too many pages, much like reading the stage directions for an action movie or something Then intriguing parts like Silas long l [...]

    25. I won a copy of this book on the giveaways This was a fun book to read, good action, interesting plot Starting with action right at the beginning caught my attention right away Then, filling in backstory, we find that the main character was an accountant hitman The financial background and terminology nearly made me quit reading I do not have any experience with finances or the stock market so this aspect held no appeal for me Perhaps readers who have experince with Wall Street and hedge funds w [...]

    26. Read as a first read s winner.Although the advance copy had several minute errors, overall the plot was spectacular Taking place in the must written about Wall Street world of intrigue, the plot quickly took off past my limited knowledge of economic matters, but the book explained well enough to keep me interested and informed.As a fast paced thriller, Clawback succeeds, with easily built characters and a masterly weaved feel of suspense There wasn t enough attraction to the characters and plot [...]

This book was a fun read It was well written, fast paced and kept the story line moving throughout There were lots of plot twists to keep you entertained The book is mostly dialogue driven, which made for an easy read For readers that get bored with financial jargon, beware that there is lots of financial terminology throughout the book, but having been in the industry, I enjoyed it very much Clawback is a nice escape novel, although some of the plot twists may be a bit 007 Bondish and a little [...]
