Review: IN MEMORY OF GREED by Al Boudreau
The author weaves an intriguing story from Murhkin's abduction from a hospital bed in California to a flight to Ireland and finally to Kenya, Africa. The global manhunt for Murhkin is on. Never having been to Africa, I was transported to the plains with breath-taking descriptions. It is here that the action is racheted up another notch. I was routing for Murhkin with every passing heart-pounding chapter. The cast of characters are well-fleshed out especially Murhkin, although I did find Stuart Roth, the CEO of ModAgro, a little over-the-top.
I would have liked to rank this book higher because I did enjoy the fast-paced and intriguing storyline, but the ending of the book is a bit jumbled and tied up in a neat bow without resolving some of the very issues that Murhkin faced in the opening pages of the book. I would have liked more explanation in the epilogue. Despite this, In Memory of Greed is a very good read. Fans of political intrigue and thrillers will enjoy this one.
