Two brothers. Three secret service agents. And millions for the taking. Charlie and Oliver Caruso are brothers who work at Greene and Greene, a private bank so exclusive there's a $2 million minimum to be a client. But when the door of success slams in their faces, the brothers are presented with an offer they can't refuse: $3 million in an abandoned account that can't be traced. It's the perfect victimless crime. Charlie and Oliver opt to take the money, but get much more than they bargained for. Now, with a lot of extra zeroes in their pockets and a friend found dead, the Secret Service and a female private investigator are closing in. Whose money did they take? How will they stay alive? And why is the Secret Service trying to kill them? Both Charlie and Oliver quickly realize it's not easy being The Millionaires.

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.
