The 500: A Novel by Matthew Quirk

500 Reviewed by Julie Moderson

I feel so honored to review Matthew Quirk’s first novel. It is an amazing book that will have you on the edge of your seat the whole time you are reading this book. I stayed up way too late several nights because I just couldn’t stop reading. Matthew Quirk is a writer to watch because I think he has a lot of books to write and I for one will read all of them. The novel The 500 has been purchased by 20th Century Fox to be made into a movie and I am sure it will be excellent.

Mike Ford is a bright young man and he gets a dream job before he graduates from Harvard Law. His job is with the Davies Group, the most powerful consulting firm in Washington DC. Mike is the Davies Groups rising star. He has it all; an amazing salary, beautiful home, and a gorgeous girl. The group helped his dad get out of prison. What more could a guy want? Mike loves being on his way to the top but quickly discovers that all is not as it seems to be.

This is a very fast read but you will want to pause for a second just to get your bearings. You will continue to say “Oh my God”, as you see what Mr. Quick has in store for Mike Ford. You will feel like you are really into the book – a part of the story. This book will have you reading things into the articles you see and hear about each day. Who is really in control?
