My Review of 'Hill Country Greed'

by Patrick Kelly

HILL COUNTRY GREED takes place in 1999, during the boom days of high-tech. In it, Joe Robbins takes a position as CFO at a Connection Software in Austin, Texas, hoping to cash in on stock options, become rich and be set for life.

What Joe doesn’t realize is that nefarious goings-on are taking place at the Connection, as the firm is called. When an employee commits suicide at a firm party, Joe is wary, but not nearly wary enough.

The story follows Joe and how his life unravels as he makes one bad decision after another. Author Patrick Kelly has written a highly suspenseful page-turner that I found hard to put down. He also paints a picture of Austin that puts the reader right there.

This book is Kelly’s debut novel. I highly recommend it and look forward to reading his next one.
