A gold medal for Gold Street!, March 23, 2012
Who would have thought that a suspense novel about the Federal Reserve would be so intriguing! I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and couldn't put it down until I finished it. It was especially nice that the author used a mother who may have been weak in the past but one who used her instincts and became a strong woman by the end. Although I am in the financial industry, it was very informative about the Federal Reserve and its role in our economy. I especially liked the quotes at the start of each chapter that show that the government turning over the Federal Reserve to private bankers has been questioned since the beginning. The book makes me want to learn more about the Federal Reserve and I can't wait for the next book!

Kathy Kale's book is a griping page-turner right from the first sentence! I was impressed with the dialogue, the drama and the depth of her analysis. The author has a Ph.D. in toxicology?? She must have a second degree in finance: her analysis and description of our current economic situation here in America is spot on. A clear and concise critique of the American financial system. And all wrapped up in a believable story, too! Great read!
Five out of five Starts for Gold Street February 10, 2012
Kale wrote a good novel. Politically accurate with information about our federal reserve that all Americans should know!!! I think this would make a good movie and hope someone in that field picks it up- fast page turning story from beginning to end. We all need to be more conscious in America with the $$$ trail- so let's wake up America!

`Gold Street' is a novel that every American should read. It is a griping mystery story about a young man from a prominent political family. Readers truly believe that he is in grave danger, but the authorities seem most reluctant to take the threats seriously. Instead, they suspect that the authorities are the real threat to his safety. At the same time as the story unfolds, the book attempts to explain the cause of recent economic and financial ills in the States. As well, it proposes a simple (but difficult to implement) solution. This novel is recommended both for the story and the detailed financial analysis that this novel explains in an easy-to-understand manner. When readers understand the cause of the present day economic crisis, a revolution of sorts may ensue. A true bonus of this novel, is the wonderful quotes that writer Kate Kale has incorporated into each page-turner chapter....truly an enjoyable read.

I thought "Gold Street" was a great read. The characters and plot are believable and well done. I especially enjoyed learning so much about the Federal Reserve and the ridiculous system our government has for the economy. Why should we pay interest on our own money? Why is this being allowed to continue?
A summer 'must read', July 1, 2011
Kathy Kale's first novel is a real page turner. Her detailed, yet easily understood description of the Federal Reserve's central role in driving the US economy to the benefit of corporate America is spot on. The characters are interesting, well defined and their actions believable. I had to know what would happen next and finished it in one sitting - my only disappointment came at the end when I had no more to read!
