This was a pretty good thriller with lots of twists and turns to,keep the story interesting. It's about a book in a book, a manuscript which will ruin the lives of the a lot of powerful people if it gets published.

The author of the manuscript is one of the narrators, and he tells his story about what he and his best friend Charlie Wolfe did while in college. Anyone who managed to get a copy of this manuscript is in danger of their lives. CIA and big shot politicians will do anything to make sure this book never gets published.

Fast reading and a good ending made for a great read.

What a crazy whirlwind ride that didn't stop turning until the very end! With a crazy cast of characters, I definitely had to chart this one out from an author and the things he set in motion to a publisher, editor and the subject of this book, this book had an interesting combination of thriller rolled into the book publishing world.

The publishing aspect of the book was so interesting, to see all of the hands that it takes to get a book from the author into the public's hands and then to add the anonymous author and the thriller aspect was genius. As a book blogger I have an interest in the publishing world and I always find it interesting to read books that center around the business of books.

An explosive book is about to be published, which will ruin one man's life. The race is on to get all copies of this manuscript. That is easier said than done. An interesting look at the cut throat world of publishing. Quite a few characters are involved, so pay close attention. London, Zurich, Paris, Washington DC are all visited in this rounds the world in one day adventure.Enough surprises to keep you guessing until the last page.
