"Charlie and Oliver Caruso are brothers who work at Greene & Greene, a private bank so exclusive you need two million dollars just to be a client. But when the door of success slams in their faces, they're faced with an offer they can't refuse: three million dollars in an abandoned account. No one knows it exists, and even better, it doesn't belong to anyone." "It's a foolproof crime. More important, for Charlie and Oliver, it's a way out of debt and the key to a new life. All they have to do is take the money." "But when they do, they quickly discover they've got a lot more on their hands than the prize. Before they can blink, a friend is dead - and the bank, the Secret Service, and a female private investigator are suddenly closing in. What invisible strings were attached to that account? How are the brothers going to prove they're innocent? And why is the Secret Service trying to kill them? Trapped in a breakneck race to stay alive, Charlie and Oliver are about to discover a secret that will test their trust and forever change their lives."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Another excellent financial thriller from Meltzer. Though published in 2002, its central theme reminded me of the current bitcoin (virtual cash) mess.

To be honest, I was kind of surprised with this book. I was not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did. This is defiently his best book, and you can tell he did his research.

Virtual counterfeiting. Why steal money when you can just create it? -- What do you mean create it? --- Electronically make it. Convince the computer it exists. Build it out of thin air. --- All this time, you thought you were flying first-class, and then the stewardess slaps you awake and tells you you're strapped in with a kamikaze.

(On the two brothers) He knows my look: the doubling Thomas. An I know his: the honest Injun. ---- (On reading newspaper) He thought the front section of the paper was just there to keep the sports section from getting wet.
