Gold in the Coffins mixes some unlikely scenarios together - ex-Marines, Wall Street power brokers, business schemes gone awry, whistle blowing and murder - and stirs them all together in a heady, fast-paced saga of revenge, betrayal, big business, and military members who decide to exact their own form of justice: an involving read recommended for any who like their thrillers hot and heavy.

Gold in the Coffins includes plenty of dialogue between characters, blending business, military, political and mystery facets into its story, and it skirts the lines between thriller, detective story, and novel, keeping the ability to attract all three genre readers with a tale that is satisfyingly unpredictable.

While it could be said that the main event takes its time to appear in favor of building characters who at times bog down in some of their dialogue, in actuality this just means that the story is more intricately woven than most, and not for the reader who must have nonstop staccato action.

Those with a special affinity for Marine culture and relationships after service will find Gold in the Coffins particularly inviting. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0578155168, Paperback)

A taut tale of greed, murder, and revenge as combat-weary Marines take on the crooks of Wall Street. Gold in the Coffins follows the story of a tight band of retired Marines who bonded during a bloody tour of duty in Vietnam, only to find themselves facing a darker enemy back home, the demons of Wall Street. Donnie DeAngelo survived Vietnam and the rough streets of his childhood by never giving up the fight, whether his enemy was the Viet Cong or the mob. Defying all odds, he launched a successful coffee and food business, and decided to take his company public, but a Wall Street power broker has other plans for his business: force him and his comrades into bankruptcy and loot the spoils. When Donnie threatens to blow the whistle, his best friend winds up dead-and it looks like Wall Street has drawn first blood. Donnie and members of his former platoon are betrayed by the system they once fought to defend, leading them to conclude that revenge is a dish best served bloody. USA Today bestselling author Cara Lockwood called Gold in the Coffins "a satisfying thrill-ride" and said, "This is a book that unfolds like it was meant to be an action movie." Beth Sarafraz, NY Blue NOW magazine's managing editor said, "I was up all night racing to the very last page, and then I had to remind myself this was a work of fiction, but so thoroughly crafted...that I was sure this story...happened to someone out there, for real."
