    1. A financial thriller, involving cut-throat bond trading and derivative trading with a megalomaniac hedge fund trader - our hero is an ex-fighter pilot bond trader who finds himself following up a suicide or murder mystery.


    2. Very interesting financial angleThis is a mystery with a financial angle. It goes in to great detail about stocks, bonds, derivatives and so forth. While very interesting, it does boggle the mind a bit. The mystery part and of course Calder, are the main attraction. I can see Calder becoming a Jack Reacher Everyman if the series progresses. Needs a bit of editing and proofreading and is a stand-alone book, but I’m still reading the next Calder book. Just read it already!


    3. A frightening look into financial markets At first I thought this would all be over my head but it isn’t necessary to understand all about the trading jargon to really enjoy the exciting chase. Who would win? The ending was a surprise to me but very satisfying! Hooray Michael for another good read! I look forward to “See No Evil”.


    4. This is quite a deep and heavily layered thriller about derivatives, trading bonds, money markets, and greedy, power hungry bankers. I loved it, and couldn’t get enough of it – Ridpath has a knack of making you read on and on.The main character, Calder, is a decent sort of guy, a bit boring, he seems to have no flaws other than a desire for risk, which he manages to control, so it’s not really a flaw. Anyway, he is enough to carry you through the story - which is purely plot driven - and h [...]


    5. I loved this book. Well-plotted, interesting, and suspenseful, and by a long way the best financial thriller I've ever read (and I've read a few since I'm trying to write a financial thriller). An honourable and uncorrupt ex-RAF financier tries to avenge his female colleague while uncovering a scandal that could endanger the financial system.Very John Grisham-like, but with more chases on skis and snowmobiles. And, unlike with Grisham, most of the people trying to kill the characters are their w [...]


    6. A fast paced adventure thriller set both in England and Canada. It was as exciting read and I liked the main character Alex Calder,a man wth a conscience, a former city trader, now the proud owner of a small airfield and flying school. The plot is both interesting and suspenseful.
