In Die Hard style, Silas Cade takes his atypical brand of "auditing" from Wall Street to Main Street

Fans of Lee Child's Jack Reacher and Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp will want to add Silas Cade to their lineup. Cade, the tough-guy auditor antihero introduced in Clawback , employs a brand of financial reform that comes with plenty of firepower. Needing a respite from Wall Street, Cade jumps at a job opportunity in western Pennsylvania--but finds that Main Street is just as dirty.

The job seems easy enough--check out a Pittsburgh manufacturer and file a report--but Cade quickly discovers corruption at every level. His revelations catch the attentions of hair-trigger Russian mobsters and a blonde assassin named Harmony. Cade's estranged brother is dragged into the fray as the tension builds to bullet-riddled showdowns across defunct steel mills, forests, and Appalachian fracking fields.

Cooper again delivers a timely plot involving Wall Street greed, financial corruption, and the plight of blue-collar workers.

Banal, banal, banal (did I mention banal?). . . the author notes said the writer was a financial executive - - sounds like his entire life experience and reading experience centers around comic books and action movies. To sum up this book: it's about bad guys who hire bad guys to attack other bad guys, surprised to find out that the bad guys who originally hired them do bad things?
