Michael Ridpath knows how to follow the money, something he did quite successfully in his previous financial thriller, The Market Maker.

His narrative is easy and very well organized, keeping the reader's attention on the focus of the thriller: Simon's innocence and the mass arround his life after his father in law's murder. The determination on keeping his marriage with his loved, but mistrustfull wife, is an important ingredient in the story. The end is unpredictable but is reasonable.

I really enjoyed this book. I was a little worried in the beginning that it would be too focused on the investment side of things and thus cause me to wander, but that was not the case. The story moved quickly and kept me entertained and involved all the way through.

The characters are quite well developed and I especially enjoyed the main character. His mannerisms and British colloquialisms are spot on. You also really get a sense of what the characters are going through without too much being given away until the time is right.

There were very few editing errors, and the book is very intelligently written. This is the first book I've read by Mr. Ridpath, but I will certainly be picking up more from him. I would definitely recommend this book to any mystery or crime lover.
I have to start by saying that this will reveal the major plot point. Spoiler alert! How can a pharmaceutical company expect to make billions on a drug treating millions of patients and not have the horrible side effect become apparent very quickly. And then the drug is withdrawn from the market and the litigation begins! This is a well written book so this roped me in and then really made me angry with the big reveal because the illogic is astonishing. Add to that a cover up and several murders which will be found once someone has a reason to look! There have been a few books in this genre and a movie iirc and they all have this same basic problem. I needed to rant.
It is always a treat for me to read one of Michael Ridpath’s financial thrillers and I found Final Venture to be an especially enjoyable mystery.

It is obvious that the author knows the financial world very well and he easily and clearly communicates that knowledge in this book which centers on a venture capital firm. The plot is both clever and realistic and held my attention from beginning to end.

The characterizations are very well done and the dialogue and actions keep the plot moving at a fast pace. The hero, Simon Ayot, is a likable guy, trying his best to cope with both professional and personal adversities.

The clues slowly build up as the murders increase and the story moves along, with numerous red herring detours, until the exciting and satisfying conclusion.
Fine suspense story tying together the the high-stake world of venture capitalism and the evil behind an overly ambitious biotech company taking extreme measures to vet it products. Characters and dialogue were highly realistic, story was well-paced and well-written end to end. A very good book overall and I did enjoy!
It took some dedication to keep reading this tome because it become rather drawn out in places with some pages featuring nought but waffle and padding.
The basic story IS interesting with some twists and turns and an insight into the machinations of seeking (and granting) large amounts of external funding for entrepreneurs.
Unfortunately the lead character comes across as rather bumbling and uncertain .... oddly however: perhaps that tends to make him more believable?
SO - go with the flow and enjoy the ride.
Ridpath writes about a young Englishman working for a Boston6 venture capital firm that could do well with an Alzheimer's drug under development. His wife is working with a Cambridge biotech firm who has a product doing well. Guess what, the clinical results to Rubén he first drug is being kept under w4aps by its CEO
Throw her heart
What if I was being set up for someone's murder? How would I act? What would I do? These are the questions that ran through my head as I read this book. A good book. Slow at times and heart thumping at other's. I thought the main character's wife was a bit unreasonable and he seemed too quick to forgive in my opinion. But, who knows? Maybe relief played a factor. I don't want to give anything else away so I will stop. Worth a read.
I sure didn't see that ending until the end. The story was well done. The wife was not overly likeable but Simon was a fantastic character. I enjoyed the book.
