Two brothers who are desperately chasing success get more than they bargained for in this suspenseful cat-and-mouse thriller of wealth, crime, and social climbing.

Two brothers. Three secret service agents. And millions for the taking. Charlie and Oliver Caruso are brothers who work at Greene and Greene, a private bank so exclusive there's a $2 million minimum to be a client. But when the door of success slams in their faces, the brothers are presented with an offer they can't refuse: $3 million in an abandoned account that can't be traced. It's the perfect victimless crime. Charlie and Oliver opt to take the money, but get much more than they bargained for. Now, with a lot of extra zeroes in their pockets and a friend found dead, the Secret Service and a female private investigator are closing in. Whose money did they take? How will they stay alive? And why is the Secret Service trying to kill them? Both Charlie and Oliver quickly realize it's not easy being The Millionaires.

Spiraling along with intrigue and drama, this didn't disappoint. Readers of Meltzer's other works will recognize the twisting suspense laid over top of sincere relationships and be swept along by what's another carefully plotted thriller. I won't say that this one felt quite so powerful as some of his other works--there was something somewhat too easy and recognizable about the relationship between the main characters for it to be so striking as some of his work--but it was still a fun escape with whirlwind action. Despite its being nearly 500 pages, this is simply a fast read, and I don't think fans of Meltzer's work will be disappointed.

The story line was fine, although slightly unbelievable in places. I decided to finish the book, but got pretty tired of a few things. The brothers seem to communicate by just looking at each other. Yes, I know that people do to an extent, but it seemed to get carried away here. Also, I got tired of many cliches and pithy sayings. I will admit that there is very little bad language, but there is violence. This is the first adult book I've read of Meltzer's, and I don't expect to read another. I do love his children's biographies, though.

Having worked in the finance area, I enjoyed the references. However, the story was brain candy. It was like a little roller coaster. The plot got good, then just coasted, then got interesting again, then got exciting, and at the end, it left you unsatisfied and not wanting to go on the ride again.
