Présentation de l'éditeur

Dave Hart, charismatic leader of the fallen giant, Grossbank, is dead. But it’s worse than that. He's in love. In the midst of an opium-and-sex-fuelled haze in the heart of Cambodia, having made billions of dollars from Grossbank’s collapse before faking his own death, he is desperate to return to London and get The Girl. And in this case, it's not just any girl – it’s Laura 'Two Livers' Mackay, the most intelligent, independent, powerful woman around … with the kind of figure that would make a dead man restless. But how exactly do you rise from the dead? How do you go about resurrecting the financial world following a devastating economic crash? And why are some of the shadiest figures in organised crime so keen to give you upwards of a hundred billion dollars? The Ego's Nest is a witty, gripping, fast-paced tale of one man trying to stay true to his beliefs no matter how jaded and immoral they may be, in a world where ethical business is obviously bad business.

This is the first time I have come across Dave Hart, as I have not read the previous four books in which he featured. However, he could have been the twin of Alan B'Stard of New Statesman, a TV series in the UK. B'Stard is accurately described in wiki as selfish, greedy, dishonest, devious, lecherous and sadistic. Dave manages to exhibit all these admirable qualities together with a total lack of any moral scruples. In other words you really cannot help but like the guy!

Actually I am probably being a bit hard on Dave. This time round he has been resurrected from the dead after his 'suicide' in the previous instalment. His masterplan to make billions on this occasion is to start up a new Salvation Fund, using his excellent contacts in the underworld to raise the initial funds. However, whilst the whole idea is market manipulation, he wants to buy stakes and build success when shares go up rather than short selling shares he does not own and make money buying them back when the companies and share prices have crashed. He also wants the bad guys, who have supplied the cash, to give up their drug running, people smuggling etc when he has made them their billions - yes, that sounds really likely! Dave is highly smitten with his former colleague, the so called Two Livers due to her prodigious drinking talents and this seems to be his overriding concern. So he is not all bad really.

This book is written with some authority and the author clearly has a background of experience in the city. Some of his observations, for example on the workings of AIM (Alternative Investment Market) on the London Stock Exchange are, in my opinion, bang on the money. Obviously the comments are often witty and incisive, but clearly completely over the top in the main. However, there is more than an element of truth there.

Personally I thought The Ego's Nest was great fun and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is very short so most readers will read it very quickly. It is easy enough to write a page of two of entertaining prose, but extremely hard to keep the standard up for a whole book and I think this is all very good stuff and very funny. My slight reservation would be that this is set in the UK and the practices, markets, and politics are all UK based so if you live in the UK, as I do, it makes absolute sense. However, readers in the US may find parts of it a bit harder to make sense of.

This was quite odd. I haven't read the previous books in the series but this doesn't really have much of a storyline.

It wasn't too badly written and I did read it to the end.
There were some amusing asides but I don't feel that the book was extreme was enough to really work as satire or parody.
The ending was quite abrupt and there was no real conflict or surprises in the book. It just seemed like there was a succession of scenes.

The book is very short and there are no chapters. It has self published feel to it.

There was a bit to enjoy in this especially some of the sarcasm and I did read it to the end but I felt that it could have been a lot better.
