True Fiction (Ian Ludlow Thrillers #1) Reviews
worth every minute of my time
absolutely enjoyed this story. The characters were fun and believable. good plot. the author balanced the pace and length of this book just right for me. I read it from start to finish while only briefly sitting my kindle down to refill my glass of wine. highly recommend!
Highly credible fiction
Given 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 cop...
Fast pace, likeable and detestable characters, an all-too-believable plot and viola! A great story.
The idea of this novel is fantastic and what I thought would be a different, but similar, book for #CJSReads. What I got was something completely different than I had anticipated.
I am sincerely baffled on how I feel about this book. Is it satirical? Author Ian Ludlow's writing terrorism scenarios for the CIA start coming true. At least, he thought they were CIA.

Wow, fiction at its finest. Couldn't put this down, read in one day. Scary but believable. Easy to visualize each character.
In a uniquely original plot premise Will Cross, the head of a major security company poses as a CIA chief looking for imaginative potential 9/11-type terrorist attacks from a small group of thriller writers in the interest of being proactive in defense of the homeland. Ian Ludlow, a successful screenwriter and thriller author suggests a "what if" scenario; terrorists hack the automatic pilot of a jetliner and crash it. Ian quickly forgets the meeting until three years later when a jetliner crash ...more
Derivative and weak
Skimmed 2/3 of the book and didn't miss anything. If this was supposed to be humorous it failed. It was frustrating that a "editor" liked it enough to make it a recommended book for the Amazon read first program. That's 3 hours of my life I won't get back, but at least it was free.
