I would recommend this book for adults and older teens, or people that love thrillers or mystery books. I say this because the book will get you wrapped up into the world of white collar crime. It also shows you the dark world that wealthier people deal with it and it shows that a lot of "rich" or "wealthy" people aren't always happy and go through hardships too. In this novel I love that Stuart woods puts the main character; Stone Barrington in multiple situations where it looks like he wouldn't ever be able to get out of it. But his savvy and charming personality gets him out of it. His previous experiences and career being a police Officer he knows what to do and he is has lots of connections within the government, officers, technological people. It also shows that everyone isn't as good as they seem and everyone has dirt or skeletons in their closet
