A captivating debut about wealth envy and secrets the story of five women whose lives are dramatically changed by the downfall of a financial titanOn September 15 2008 the world of Greenwich Connecticut is shaken When the investment bank Weiss Partners is shuttered CEO Bob D’Amico must fend off allegations of malfeasance as well as the judgment and resentment of his community As panic builds five women in his life must scramble to negotiate power on their own terms and ask themselves what if anything is worth savingIn the aftermath of. Eh It wasn't horrible but I'm not sure what I was supposed to get out of it I thought I was supposed to look at the Wall Street bankersinvestorstraders with a sympathetic eye but no Or maybe sympathize with their families Not really I know it was too long and it read like a soap opera but with better but still overblown writing It probably could have been cut in half I was skimming by the end The big pivotal scene was disappointing and most of the good stuff happened off stage It had potential Or maybe I just wanted to be reading a different book altogether

characters Our Little Racket

Our Little RacketLily it means deciding where her loyalties lie when it comes to the family in which she is both an essential member and ultimately an outsider All these women have witnessed than they’ve disclosed all harbor secret insecurities and fears and all must ask themselves where is the line between willful ignorance and unspoken complicityWith astonishing precision insight and grace Angelica Baker weaves a timeless social novel about the rituals of intimacy and community; of privilege and information; of family and risk; of etiuette and taboo. I wanted to like this book However it was not the insightful look into five women that I hoped It was a somewhat interesting exploration of the largely wealthy privileged world of uber rich women who are dependent upon Wall Street men for their livelihoodLily the character I was most intrigued by fades rapidly into the background and is largely defined by her relationship to her obnoxious boyfriend JacksonMother Isabel and daughter Madison are neither compelling nor interesting The most defining thing about Isabel seems to be her effortless expensive beauty which is covered ad nauseumI'd skip this one in favor of Diana Henriues' fabulously researched non fiction work about Madoff if you're intrigued by the financial crisis
