Broken Trust by Thomas Maurin

This is a story about three smart, successful people who were once fast friends in college and have now been thrust together again in an unlikely, multi-layered investigation with far-reaching international implications and billions of dollars at stake. One is a forensic accountant for the SEC, one beta tests hardware and software for the US Department of Defense and the UK Ministry of Defense, and the third is a wildly successful entrepreneur, software developer and venture capitalist in Silicon Valley.

They get caught up in the hunt for a corrupt Swiss banker intent on finally unloading the last of the gold stolen by his father in World War II; a violent, narcissist leader of a Mexican drug cartel making his move to take over as the head of all cartels in Central America; and the daughter of a murdered Bulgarian arms dealer making the deal that will give her mother financial stability and get them both out of the increasingly unstable arms business.

The plot unfolds as financial crimes committed by insiders put common criminal activities to shame in a world where technology has increasingly insinuated itself into our lives to good and bad effects.
Review
Very interesting book about finding the truth. Who and What!  I found myself unable to put the book down - I would say "Just one more chapter." Right away with Fitz's character I was hooked. I seemed to be able to totally relate with her.  Very good read. I highly recommend Broken Trust.  Bonnie and Michael did an excellent job keeping me wanting more!

  2. Will be adding to my list! I haven't had time to catch up on all your blogging since we were out of town for a month, then sick. Was glad you were at book club last night and enjoyed the book so much! I was nervous suggesting it, but it really is a new favorite of mine. I like your goal to try and read a book a week. I am aiming for 45 this year, so I guess that is kind of close to one a week? :)
