About the book:

Part action novel, part literary novel, part guidebook to economics, The Economics of Ego Surplus is the story of college instructor Kyle Linwood. Anticipating a relaxing summer with his girlfriend and his PhD dissertation, he gets recruited by the FBI to help with an obscure case of terrorist internet “chatter,” which explodes into a shocking, mysterious assault on U.S. financial markets.

As the economy melts down and a nation panics, Kyle follows a trail of clues from Dallas to New York City to Dubai, United Arab Emirates. In his quest to discover the truth, he will be forced to confront the assumptions underlying his education as well as his life. But will it be enough to save America from the most brilliant terrorist plot ever conceived?

My rating: 4 Stars

I very much enjoyed ‘The Economics of Ego Surplus’ – it was interesting, thought provoking, and much better than I had anticipated.

Kyle Linwood, a college professor, helps the FBI with a case involving possible economic terrorism during his summer break.

The story was very believable and I have even found myself thinking about it when I watched the news. The story is fictional, however, ‘The Economics of Ego Surplus’ opened my eyes to economics and how the economy works.

‘The Economics of Ego Surplus’ is not labeled Christian Fiction, however, I found it to be clean and think the story was good.

I really liked and definitely recommend ‘The Economics of Ego Surplus’ if you enjoy reading suspenseful stories that are interesting and make you think!

*I received a complimentary copy from the author. I was not required to give a positive review, only my honest opinion.*
