The First Billion book I think Reich made it tangible for those of us who need it, without lecturing too long or boring those familiar with the world of finance

The First Billion book. James Daniel did a terrific job with the different accents because a good portion of the book took place in Russia. This has a lot to do with the financial world and the New York Stock Exchange with the launch of a new IPO on the market. I think Reich made it tangible for those of us who need it, without lecturing too long or boring those familiar with the world of finance. I like how Reich transitioned between storylines and characters, allowing me to get to know the personalities. A few parts An entertaining read.

Praise for Christopher Reich The First Billion "Engrossing . Christopher Reich was born in Tokyo, Japan, in 1961. destined a big readership in the summer's waning days. -The Wall Street Journal "There has been no shortage of writers aspiring to be the John Grisham of Wall Street.

The last thing Jett Gavallan would call himself was a hero. A fighter pilot in the Gulf War, he found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time. Now Gavallan lives with the memory and the blame for what happened. But he is determined not to let it destroy him. He has created Black Jet Securities, an international financial consulting firm, in order to use his expertise to create enough wealth to do some good in the world. It's a noble goal, but Black Jet Securities' latest and most ambitious deal could destroy everything that Gavallan has worked so hard to build.


On the surface it seems like a perfectly lucrative and legitimate business venture: bring a Russian high-tech company to the U.S. Stock Exchange. But the company's owner turns out to be one of the most ruthless bosses in the Russian Mafia whose plans go far beyond the Stock Exchange. Suddenly Gavallan is dead center in a world where hired armies fight a secret war, alliances are made if the price is right—and deals are sealed with murder. To outwit Kirov and his assassins, Gavallan will need to summon all the raw courage and cunning of the combat pilot he once was and this time he cannot afford to fail.

As finance professional, I like reading novels based around my business. This book qualifies and has the added appeal of the popular 90s theme of IPOs on Internet assets. But then the author tried to throw in every other novel cliché. Let's make the successful business owner a former pilot. Don't forget the love interest with plenty of twists. And remember when you make a novel, Clancy's spy thrillers sell well so let's revisit a Russian theme as the bad guys. And make sure you kill plenty of people as that sells well also.
Eventually I realized I wasn't reading a novel based around a finance theme but a "novel cliché". Too much of anything eventually becomes boring. With this many subjects to cover, nothing can be developed fully. It's a fairly long, disjointed book that tries to do too much. I'd take a pass unless all of the subjects I mentioned above are really attractive to you.

I found this to be a real page turner. It has an interesting and topical basis in the crime and corruption that can surround the taking of a private company public in the days of greed that we have been and are stil living through, to some extent. Add to the mix that the company is Russian and that the owner is as amoral as he is ambitious and then add to that mix those that are trying to prevent it from happening and the pages are starting to turn. The focus of the book, Jett Gavallon, a former F-16 jockey and now a high tech entrepreneur is suspected of some very serious crimes in his association with Konstantin Kirov, the owner of Mercury Broadband. How that all meshes together is what makes this book such a good read. I was fortunate to have a weekend during which I could really sit with this book and let the story just run. I throughly enjoyed it and I suspect you will too.

Have enjoyed all of the work by Christopher Reich; the only possible "knock" on his writing is that some of his scene's are too drawn out (way too much information!). However, the exciting page-turning story does override this minor distracting issue!

Excellent business fiction book. Centered on an IPO of a tech company, black jet securities runs into numerous conflicts and roadblocks bringing the company public.
