Book Review - Zero Alternative - Luca Pesaro

Tuesday, August 5, 2014


Having worked as a bookkeeper for too many years I have witnessed and seen corruption in the business and financial world. They are cut-throat. I have always heard a rumor that there is a group of people that call the shots--all of them. Do I believe this--YES. Although this is a novel I found it all to believable.

This novel will make you stop and wonder what really goes on in the world of finance and if it does affect our governments and what happens to our economies.

A great read and a very believable conspiracy theory-at least to me.

About the Book: (from Amazon)


Framed, hunted, betrayed…

Scott Walker is a fugitive from the quicksands of Finance, with one card to play – DeepShare, a silicon oracle coveted by billionaires, hitmen and hackers. As he fights for survival and vengeance, digging deeper into the dark heart of the global economy, one question torments him: what price will the world have to pay?
ZERO ALTERNATIVE is an action-packed conspiracy thriller that plucks at the base of human nature. When our grip on love, hope and morality starts to slide, the only future worth living is the one we choose for ourselves.

Those who have wealth make the rules. That's just a sad fact throughout history. This sounds like a good read (although I am not very conspiratorial). Thanks for the review!

I sure does seem like there are always a few people that call the shots for everyone not matter what organization or country. Sounds like a good book.
