I’d probably react similarly to Ian Ludlow, mild-mannered creator of the megahit Clint Straker series (think Jack Reacher meets James Bond). When Ludlow finds himself in this situation in the opening pages of this rollicking new thriller, he takes off running for his life.
Reluctantly accompanied by Margo, a young woman who happens to be at his side when the bad guys show up, Ian soon finds that he must put himself in his character’s shoes and become a real-life star to uncover a sinister plot, save himself and Margo, and come up with his next great book idea.
Goldberg, a bestselling thriller writer whose credits include co-authoring the Fox and O’Hare series with Janet Evanovich, has given us a fun, fast-paced adventure with moments that are both pulse-racingly exciting and laugh-out-loud hilarious. I might not want to find myself in an Ian Ludlow thriller, but I really loved reading this one.
