Format: Mass Market Paperback
The first chapters were very promising. The author managed to give me a wonderful flavour of the two main characters, but alas...
The pace is frenetic but past page 200 the wonderful characters start becoming flat, a run and chase thriller that I could not seem to embrace.
I became more and more disinterested in the plight of the brothers. Two supposedly brilliant minds who quite never caught up to the vast "conspiracy" surrounding them, even when it was as clear as glass just wiped with Windex.
I can't quite come up with a solid reason why this story didn't draw me in... for that I'll give it 3 stars

I have read Meltzer's The First Counsel and found it a fast paced enjoyable read. The Millionaires, while an easy read, just did not grab me. I found the interplay between the brothers Oliver and Charlie, somewhat sophmoric. While I don't recall getting their ages, this read more like a Hardy Boys novel than a taut thriller. Many of the sub plots defied credibility. How these two 'boys' go up against two secret service men just doesn't cut it - neither is close to a Jason Bourne type.
Just did not seem near the level of Greg Iles, or even Stehpen Coonts (whose books I was reading concurrently).
I may try another Meltzer novel just to see if this was an anomaly or more typical of his fare.

The dialogue and the plot is not much different from "The Tenth Justice", so if you like that it is fine. Otherwise I found it to be without much new thinking and creativity.
If you have the choice, read something else.

As a financial thriller, this is an okay book, but nothing outstanding. I mostly enjoyed reading it because it moved fairly quickly.
The positives: Quick and painless; Different subject; Exploration of the "gray" areas of crime (when you think no one can get hurt, does that make it right?).
The negatives: Dialogue is a bit too cliche at times; Meltzer still has some work to do to perfect his craft as a writer; Unbelievable plot (but that's okay for a quick and painless read); Flat characterization (the villains) or over characterization (the main characters) a bit annoying at times.
Overall, neither bad nor good. Just okay.

This was my fisrt Metzger book and it was an enjoyable read. The book grabs you from the get go but tends to drag towards the end. I found myself wondering when is this book going to end. The story was good and I enjoyed oliver and Charlie very much, brothers always come first. I found the Duckworth secret a bit confusing but it all worked out in the end. This book could of been a little shorter but I enjoyed it none the less. The Secret Service tie in and Joey make this book very interesting.

This is my first Metzer novel. I listened to the unabridged version. The narrator was great.
The first section of the book caught my attention. The initial setup and reasoning was first rate.
The first serious flaw came when the brothers instead of getting out of the country and enjoy the immense wealth are determined to find out more about the account they stole from. WHY!!!!
The book became very bogged down about a third of the way through it. The storyline became totally unbelievable.
The Secret Service is made to look like rank amateurs. The love interest in the story was telegraphed so far in advance a first grader could figure out that she was part of the initial group stealing the money.
Two timid brothers have as much chance of pulling off this caper as someone winning the lottery on the first ticket purchased.
Metzer continues the hyper writing to the end. In the process, he rips off at least three movies that had Disney as the scene of the climax.
The ending of the story is very unsatisfactory. Don't waste your time with this book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
"The Millionaires," Meltzer's fourth thriller takes us into the rarefied world of million dollar banking, cyber pyrotechnics, and then to of all places Disney World. It's a fast paced romp that will please this imaginative writer's fans.
Oliver Caruso is in the employ of one of Manhattan's most upscale banks, Greene & Greene. The institution is so select that two million is needed just to achieve the status of client. Oliver's been toiling for Henry Lapidus, an exec at this financial palace. Regrettably, Lapidus doesn't appreciate Oliver's ministrations and is attempting to scuttle his minion's career plans. What's the poor guy to do? He enlists the aid of his younger brother, Charlie, who has problems staying gainfully employed. The pair decide to take three million dollars sitting in an abandoned account. They'll soon be living the life of Riley - if Riley had a seven figure deposit in an offshore bank, that is.
What a piece of a cake - with a very rich icing. They've found the perfect crime. Problem is, make that plural, problems are that somehow the original three million has undergone a cyberspace evolution and become $300 million. Not only that but some others at Greene & Greene had their own plans for the funds in this abandoned account, and someone is found dead.
Now the bros are really in hot water. The local authorities are after them as is the Secret Service. However, they do manage to get to Florida, attempting to follow the money to the daughter of the account's late owner. Said owner was a techno wiz for Disney, a mind boggling inventor. As amazing as the wiz's invention is, it's really nothing compared to what Oliver and Charlie eventually discover in this page-turner of a tale.
Those with an interest in high and low finance will find enjoyment aplenty in "The Millionaires." Meltzer fans will revel in their author's latest spin on boardroom crime.
