    Not too bad, but it start rather slowly and went on and on looking backwards on the characters It was really only in the last few pages that it got going and became readable.

    Entertaining white collar crime novel The characters, of whom one from Bull Street by the same author, are lovable A lot of description of the New York scene The plot holds the road and keeps readers interested until the end.

    I thought this was a really good book I am an artist turned wall street banker so this book was right in my wheelhouse I was hesitant about this book at first because the title sounded a bit corny but once I started reading I was hooked The author experience as an investment banker is evident in the way the main character Mickey speaks and acts And the detail he goes through when discussing the art tells me he really did his research.In the book Mickey a former wall street guy who was arrested for insider trading is plotting to con the man who is engaged to his ex wife At the same time the brother of a man angry that Mickey helped put in jail is out trying to kill him, and the DA who put Mickey in jail is suspicious of Mickey s new art dealer career The art con itself is a pretty clever caper, but when you add to it the people trying to kill Mickey it makes it that much thrilling.My only complaint about the book and its really really minor, is that it seems out of place for Warren Buffett to be talking about a stolen painting It just doesn t seem believable that a guy like that would want to be involved in an illegal deal like that Other than that I thought this was a really good book and I can t wait to read David Lender s other books I highly recommend

    The acid test of a novel for me is Do I feel compelled to keep turning pages until I absolutely have to stop If genre matters to you, I would call this white collar crime fiction with an important love angle, but one that is key to the story without dominating the action I wouldn t call it a simple book, but it is a quick and easy read in my opinion.Others have mentioned what is by far my own most significant criticism The author is slow to set the hook At what I feel is at most a minimal risk of spoiling the book, the the hook wasn t set for me until the passage running between pages 24 and 30 in the Kindle edition I even considered putting the book down, although I am certainly glad I stuck with it.At the end of the day, I definitely got five stars worth of enjoyment out of the book I hope you will too.

  13. D. R. Johnson D. R. Johnson says:

    This was an extremely engaging, fast paced novel with a well drawn cast of characters involved in the intriguing world of fine art wheeling dealing The plot had many well thought out twists and turns that were clever enough on their own merits to keep you guessing without resorting to flights of fancy or coincidences that strain credulity The writing is crisp and advances the story while fully and smartly developing the characters and providing the reader with a clear window into their somewhat complicated and conflicted souls This author leaves you wanting Although this is the first novel I ve read by David Lender, it will NOT be the last

    In the genre of crime novels, one off my favorites is the caper novel and of those, a novel where the scam is to rip off another crook or con man rates highest, Think The Sting.David Lender s Mickey Outside is short, delightful caper novel with a sharp plot, engaging characters and a fascinating background of how 1% er New York lives The story is about getting even and getting revenge as Mickey , who is in a minimum security federal prison for securities fraud,hatches a plot to do both Once freed from the slammer, he returns to New York to reclaim his life and his wife and make a few bucks More than a few, actually.It is all a lot of fun, with a few tense moments added for seasoning Personally, I think it would make a great movie.Get Mickey Outside and see for yourself.
