Product Description

Product Description

Richard Kepperman was on top of his game until blowing the whistle on his high powered Atlanta accounting firm. Black balled from the financial arena, on the verge of bankruptcy, he returns to his roots in coastal Georgia to be near his aging grandfather, Clayton. Frustrated and underemployed, he is an easy mark when approached by a stranger who offers to bet ten million dollars that he can capture Richard within a span of thirty days. In return, Richard will be required to risk all that he holds dear.
Given a twenty four hour head start, Richard embarks on an odyssey that will forever change the way he views love, life, friendship and the power of money. On the run, he encounters forces that threaten to do irreparable damage to his sanity and rip his family to shreds. Fighting to stay alive, Richard uncovers the startling truth about the deaths of his parents and learns that the real power behind the stranger is a man who harbors a sixty year old grudge against Clayton and is willing to commit unspeakable atrocities to satisfy his desire for revenge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great debut! 12 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The beauty of Kindle is finding great new authors and that's exactly what I've done here.
The Bet is fast paced and unputdownable!! The characters and the issues that they face are believable and you can't help but draw comparisons and question your own reactions.
I can't wait for Davids next book and have already joined his mailing list. You will too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great read 24 Nov 2014

Ok, the initial story is a little silly to be honest, but if you can swallow that and just go with it this is a great story. You will probably find yourself doubting that a few of the key elements would ever really happen - but this if fiction! Kept me interested throughout, a real page-turner it almost finished too quickly for me! Enjoy, I did

1.0 out of 5 stars I can't believe it found a publisher! 21 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This will go down as the worst book I have ever read. The plot was dreadful, and it seemed as if he got himself in a corner and had to find a way of getting out of it, Any way even if it was ridiculous . His villain was totally unbelievable, and the writing child like with so many errors even getting names mixed up. I don't think it was ever proof read, or edited. Will never buy another by this author.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad 2 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not brilliant but a okay book... It took me a while to really get into it but for the price that I paid it wasn't too bad. It's one of these books that if you haven't got anything else to read, you just read it : )

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bet 28 Feb 2013

Format:Kindle Edition
What a book! One of the best I have read in a long time. Action, suspense and drama, all rolled up in a fast moving, gut-wrenching story, which was too good to put down. Great book!

4.0 out of 5 stars None 26 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is fast paced and gripping. Only complaints are that occasionally character names are mixed up (though doesn't really draw away from the story too much) and the ending seemed a bit rushed (it just happens and then is hastily explained afterwords). Other than that an enjoyable read
