Whatever it Takes, Andy McNab

Whatever it Takes opening line: It’s amazing the view just a few million dollars will buy you.

My blurb:

James Mercer is going to get back every dime his family lost. And more. He will take from those that caused his hard working family to lose everything. The financial masterminds who manipulated the market. He does everything he can to ensure he will not get caught. But try as he may, that is not possible. And being captured by his target comes with so many far reaching repercussions.

Whatever it Takes
They say before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.
For James Mercer, the financial ruin of his family by the institutions they trusted can never be undone. It shattered everyone, leaving him with a burning need to right the wrongs they suffered. He will stop at nothing to recoup what they are owed. It’s not theft, it’s payback.
Until his solo crusade falls foul of the very people he seeks to rob – the one percenters, the people who own the bulk of the world’s wealth. Soon he is putting together a crew to carry out one last robbery, to undertake one last job. Success will restore his family’s honour, but failure will destroy them forever.
My verdict:

There were parts of this book that had me glued to the pages. All the technical ins and outs were fantastic, and believable. The story line may be a bit far fetched. Well, at least I hope so! Read it yourself to see what I mean.
