I thought this book was great. Kind of political fiction that took a lot of twists and turns that left me on the edge of my seat. I would definitely read another book by this author but have yet to find one.

Okay, so first let's just say that any book that blows up a cruise ship full of children in the first six pages is okay be me! (Just Kidding!). It's six months later, and everyone in the U.S. is freaked out by the fact that their brightest children - on a special gifted & talented cruise - are gone. No one (or should I say too many people?) has claimed responsibility.
It's snowing in Iowa and the postman is crossing a quiet streeet, continuing on his route. He glances over the hills behind th

I actually give this book 2 1/2 stars but will round up to be generous since I've read worse.

I didn’t dislike this book but I didn’t love it either. Be forewarned it doesn’t have anything to do with the beloved character who wishes to become a real boy someday. It was a quick read about politics gone awry but the plot and the characters were a bit over the top for me. Some rich guy poisons people with something that makes them go catatonic and who eventually die so some other guy can become pre

In a world where your life is ruled by few governing individuals, we like to think that those ruling us have societies best interest at heart. Or at least have some value of life and those of their fellow man. And woman. What happens behind the shiny exterior put on for the camera?
With the president under attack from all political sides, it is left to a young shining star of a politician to lead people away from panic after a terrible nuclear attack. To make matters worse a horrible illness is

It starts with a bang, whimpers along, and dies into absurdity that is the graveyard of too many political thrillers. There's something almost schizophrenic about the writing -- patched of dullness and all of the sudden, a brilliant sentence or paragraph becomes even more brilliant from the contrast with the background. The story is interesting — I hope it gets picked up for a screenplay; I would love to see it as a movie.

it started good but author seemed to lose focus

The Pinnocchio Syndrome is a quick read with a mostly fast plat once you get into it. It's far fetched and cliche all at the same time, but if you want something that will entertain you quickly, this will do the job.
Peter Mcmahon
I read this a few years back and it blew my mind. Fantastic pace and a really intelligent story line. Really surprised me from an author I hadn't heard much about. Highly recommended.
Juliet
A quite unbelievable thriller but it still gets high points for the sensible and easy to read writing. I actually finished it in less than a day
Gerald Camp
Engrossing plot, though not very plausible. Characters were pretty thin. The author really likes cliche's.
Nikki Herbst
A little slow to start but couldn't put it down towards the end
Chriskolak
I really tried, but this book was just painful to read.
