Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Peter Tyler appears to have it all — a loving wife, a powerful job on Wall Street, a sprawling house in the suburbs. But in a moment of weakness, Peter indulges in a one-night stand with a beautiful trader. A few weeks later, his house is broken into and his wife brutally murdered. When the police discover Peter's infidelity, he immediately goes from grieving husband to prime suspect. Suddenly, it's up to Peter to prove his own innocence and find his wife's killer. Written with ferocity and at a lightning pace, Restitution marks the debut of an intelligent and exciting new novelist.

Jeraldeans, October 19, 2008 (view all comments by Jeraldeans)
I enjoyed this book immensely. I read voraciously and this is one of the better books I've read lately. I am surprised that this is a first book as it does not have the awkwardness that many first books exhibit. One thing, I was challenged to enlarge my vocabulary as the writer uses many non-mainstream words and I had to consult a dictionary twice.

I was pleased to find that Mr. Vance used to work at Goldman Sachs as I have recently developed an interest in the stock market myself. Which leads me to comment on part of the plot regarding counterfeit stocks, etc. I did not really understand the mechanics of the billion dollar swindle. But that's ok, as I'm really good at suspending disbelief. I'm looking forward to the next thriller.
