Description

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.

Professional reviews

"After listening to Scott Brick's performances of two books in a row, the listener can really appreciate his versatility. Sure the voice is the same in both, but his delivery is completely different. In Meltzer's latest, Brick plays two unappreciated brothers employed by a ritzy private bank who plan the perfect computer theft of three million dollars. When their efforts yield 313 million instead, the brothers are pursued by a host of characters--including the U.S. Secret Service. Brick handles this clever but complicated plot with kid gloves. He plays the brothers, whose personalities are opposites, equally well and gives Meltzer's story line a rich and exciting reading. His performance is one in a million. A.L.H.
