The Sheep Rise Up by Mitchell Graye
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Sheep Rise Up... Wow. I want this to be a movie! Cut throat, sexy in the most savage way, and utterly disgusting when you think these things actually happen in the real world.
Kristen is a corporate lawyer. I know but she's the good guy here! She's a single mom with a daughter in a not-so-affordable college, Jessica, living in a New York City apartment with her leech of a boyfriend, David, and footing the bills for both. When her morally challenged co-workers drag her in the middle of a colossal financial conspiracy and cover-up, Kristen doesn't go along blindly. What ensues is a web of lies and deceit on a massive scale bringing everyone from hired hit men and the SEC to a congressional committee and government bigwigs on the scene.
There isn't a big 'No way!" twist/reveal here but it packs a punch just the same. The main characters were sufficiently fleshed out though some of the fringe characters seemed straight out of central casting for corporate thrillers. Overall, The Sheep Rise Up is a well written, fast paced, thrilling novel.
