    • Highly credible fictionGiven the state of affairs in the world currently, there s not one concept in this book that I found unbelievable It hurts to say that, frankly, because good fiction should be at least partially incredible This IS good fiction, but all too credible.Well, except for the half man, half plant copFast pace, likeable and detestable characters, an all too believable plot and viola A great story.

    • Chuckle worthyAlmost self aggrandizing, this story of an author bailing himself out of trouble by acting like one of his characters is a lot of fun to read Nasty plots, curious characters, and improbable but inspired methods to deal with it all made for an enjoyable time.

    • Amazing Ian Ludlow is my hero and Margo and Ronnie are excellent team members Great espionage story and imaginative plot Great read.


    • Mildly baffling.This is a quick, over the top, and somewhat amusing thriller I am assuming the amusement factor was deliberate A Blackwater type security organization is setting up terrorist like events in order to foster a climate of fear and convince the U.S Government to give this organization the authority of the CIA The organization had hired a group of creative folks to brainstorm terrorist plots, use one of the plots to great effect, and then go to town on eliminating the creative guys.Th [...]


    • True Fiction by Lee Goldberg is a rollicking conspiracy thriller you ll find difficult to put down You will find some strong language and explicit sexual content but for the most part, this is a fun read Ian Ludlow is a former TV writer and currently the author of the Clint Straker thrillers A plane crash in Waikiki in the shadow of Diamondhead Volcano eerily resembles a scenario he manufactured several years earlier at a CIA gathering of authors At least that s what he thought it was at the tim [...]


    • True Fiction Ian Ludlow thriller 1.Ian s a writer, at a book signing, with his local escort, Margo, when all Hell breaks loose, a commercial airliner is deliberately crashed in Hawaii into a highly congested condo and hotel area, killing all in board and hundreds on the ground Ian s problem, he knows who is behind the act because he wrote it for the CIA years before Now, he just had to figure out how he and Margo are going to stay alive To do so, Margo convinced Ian to become Clint Steamer in r [...]


    • Scary and fascinating story This thriller was a compelling page turner from the very beginning with fast moving, edge of your seat action That the government and others have eyes and ears on us with the technology available today makes this story plausible in an over the top way Scary to think about Anyone who enjoys a thriller with twists and turns, will love this book


    • Some truly extraneous sex stuff thrown in to a doomsday thriller in which Blackthorn Enterprises schemes to take over all the covert work of the C.I.A They engineer a catastrophic plane crash into a Waikiki hotel with blame on an Islamic terrorist group They are out to kill our hero, the suspense writer Ian Ludlow, who had imagined this plot 3 years earlier in a C.I.A led focus group Full of cliches I did finish it, which says something.


    • No spoiler review As I first started reading this book I thought it was a little corny But as I read on, I got into it and The parts that I thought were corny at first turned out to very funny and full of satire About halfway through the book, I couldn t put it down and I persevered to the end Mr Goldberg s experience writing for television shows in this novel It s an action packed, fun adventure I highly recommend it for lovers of mystery, action, and Hollywood characters.


    • Fast pace, compelling storyline While I had to put the book down to make meals, clean up or do something else, I couldn t wait to pick up the book again I reviewed in my mind where I was in the story and what would happen next and before I knew it, I was reading again I finished in a day and now look forward to reading another Lee Goldberg book.


    • Great idea not so great executionI wouldn t call this a thriller, say too camp for that The idea of the plot is intriguing but the writing is so disappointing The characters are not developed and it s hard to care about any of them.I won t be looking forward to the next installment.


    • Interesting premiseA thriller novelist becomes embroiled in a real life spy thriller Good start to a new series I am curious to read I d like to see character development The characters seemed a little cartoonist and one dimensional but if there are future books I m sure the author can fill in back stories and create interest and depth Fun quick read.


    • What a Romp When I saw this as one of s Prime First offerings, everything else packed by comparison Reminiscent of David Rosenfelt s Andy Carpenter series without the dog and with much greater firepower in self deprecating, younger in cheek tone, the action was non stop A hoot


    • Man, I have never read a book about one innocent guy taking on a corporation full of bad guys How original Sarcasm aside, there s nothing here that you have not read before And it looks like there s going to be a series of these books In other words, the author is going to make as much money as he can with as little work as possible.
