    1. Book Title: Chasing Filthy LucreAuthor: Jarrett RushPublisher: Sixtwentyone PressASIN: B004SHFK2OReviewed by Michele Tater for The Couch Tater ReviewThere is only one class in the community that thinks more about money than the rich, and that is the poor.

    2. My biggest complaint about Chasing Filthy Lucre is its length. At 46 pages it comes in like a novelette or novella, but is still good. The story of a distopian future was well thought out. The characters were enjoyable and relatable. With a little fleshing and some back story, this could have been an equally engaging novel. I hope to see more from the author and these characters in the future. Who doesn't like fighting against an omnipressive megacorp?

    3. I really enjoyed this and look forward to the next one. Combines some of my favorite elements of Philip K. Dick, William Gibson, and Richard Stark.

    6. As a fan of both sci-fi and mystery, I was both excited and suspect of how this would work. To my surprise, this mix of William Gibson and Raymond Chandler worked quite well. As a novella, it did offer some depth, as well as a punchy thread of a story. I found the characters both believable and entertaining without the overbearing nature of a Dickens persona. The story was quite interesting, and this particular setting could yield a lifetime of short stories, or several full-length novels. I wou [...]
