Crashmaker, a review

It’s Airport novel that went to Harvard!
It’s a Beach Book with Wall Street smarts!

Start with a totally cool, ultra rich, smart hero.

Then add an impossibly beautiful, irresistibly exotic, intelligent, dangerous and powerful heroine.

There is, of course, a HUGE assortment of villains, many of them quite detestable, some slavering and dangerous.

But there is so much more.

It can also be read as a how-to manual, a roman à clef, a constitutional and monetary primer, or a black book indictment for students of contemporary politics, Globalism and conspiracy.

Leavened with brisk intellectual content from a wide range of politics, finance, economics, law, ethics, constitutional matters, monetary theory, the Federal reserve, government, history, conspiracy, secret societies and world domination Crashmaker is intended to educate and open eyes.

This it will do.

On the pop fiction level Crashmaker is a novel of high finance and high intrigue, a scheme of market capture and constitutional reformation that is certainly worthy of its genre. But there is a palpable intelligence behind it that presents itself in an intellectual free-for-all, with bold, concise thinking that leaves the conventional wisdom and high school civics platitudes definitely the worst for wear.

Crashmaker is ultimately a novel about the America of the founders, and her unique place as an idea as well as a legal, political and social entity. It’s about the forces that have corrupted this dream, and the forces and ideas that can rejuvenate it. Crashmaker’s content is as relevant as today’s news headline, and as timeless as our own Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
