Sintesi dell'editore

Death by Wall Street: Rampage of the Bulls, a murder mystery, is based on real events. It is the story of how the oligarchs of Wall Street, doctors and others in the pharmaceutical research profession having significant conflicts of interest, and employees of two 'captured' US government agencies the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by design as well as by simply refusing to pursue the evidence of malfeasance provided to them, deny patients life saving treatments that are demonstrated safe and effective in FDA-approved drug trials.

When the severed head of a Wall Street stock analyst turns up spiked on a horn of the Wall Street Bull, Detective Louis Martelli of the NYPD is assigned to track down the murderer. But why were this victim and the victims of two similar murders that followed singled out for execution?

Martelli eventually learns the answer to this question and tracks down the killer, but not before uncovering some of Wall Street's and the US government's darkest secrets pertaining to the US financial markets and the nation's health care practices.

Important Information for Voters of Our Time

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I just finished listening to this great Audible version of the book. Listening is a more engaging experience than simply reading quietly. The story information, while entertaining, is also based on nonfiction events surrounding especially the 2008 financial disaster and supposed cancer "cures" being widely promoted. The greedy truth behind this story is alarming. So much corruption went on and goes on.I hope this book helps others prevent or be taken advantage of by money schemes and schemers. Thanks for this truth!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Louis Martelli is a detective with a leg disability and yet is so clever and cunning as to be able to expose the criminals. He out-thinks everyone else and solves cases with finesse. Criminals walk right into the traps he sets.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The way the surveillance camera was placed was hysterical. The fact cancer drugs are more about greed than healing could make anyone cry.

Any additional comments?

A must read!

Interesting Story!

Two men in New York City and one man in Washington, DC were beheaded. Detective Louis Martelli headed up an investigation of the murders. This is not my usual genre, but I was sucked right into this one. This is very interesting! The narrator did a good job.

Informative

I received the audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

I just started listening to this book; about an hour into it. The problem I have so far is there's a lot of info dumping .... about selling stocks and buying and manipulation of stocks .... at least I think that's what it's basically all about. Now, I understand that this is probably important for the plot of the story .... a stockbroker is found dead on Wall Street, and that's fine, but for me as a layperson, this is total confusion. It's like a scientist trying to explain string theory, or quantum mechanics. It's needful, but for the reader you might want to dumb it down a bit. I might have been better if the detective made more of a statement of .... hey I'm a layperson, can you tell me this in words of one syllable please. Anyway, I think what they are trying to say is that these stockbrokers were trying to manipulate the shares of certain companies to make profits, and that the particular victim had been told to put out a negative report on the company he was reviewing for that purpose.

Once you get past this depth of information and detail, and get into the actual detective work (and I realize the detective needs an understanding of the motivation and background surrounding the murder), its a pretty decent book; characters are interesting with just enough individual information to get a liking, or disliking of them.

One thing I disliked about the book was the author's penchant for describing someone's attire and including the price tag of everything he described. I don't know whether that to further the idea of how rich the Wall Street brokers were or what.

The narration was fine, except for the audible swallowing that the narrator did. His voice was good.

Greed, murder and manipulation

This is an entertaining murder mystery that is generously interlaced with facts. Even though the story is a work of fiction, the issues it brings to light with the FDA, stock market and the security commission are real world problems, many of which are still present. It is definitely an eye opener. It breaks your heart that greed and manipulation of markets are more important than peoples lives. Listening to the audiobook version seemed to bring home the events and its effects on the people involved much more than just reading the words would have. The author did a great job of showing the corruption and faults in the system while still creating an intriguing murder mystery with realistic, appealing characters.
