He came out of nowhere with a hole in his shoe to peddle Grandyne, a formidable new drug guaranteed to foster nasty little men's stature. Inevitably, he finds a fabulously lucrative market in the rolling-in-dough streets of New York City, and even though he never inhaled Grandyne himself, there is something about him, like his hair and skin and whatnot, that makes society women swoon. So, when the grandest one of them all, who happens to own the American media, joins up with the frenzy, he is on his way to becoming The One.
And the one and only thing left to make it look as if he had made it to the very top on his own is to become proficient at doing away with anyone inclined to call him a villain.
13 politically incorrect adventures from around the world
from New York to Berlin, to sunny Hollywood and rainy Moscow, on to Hong Kong, Prague, and Buenos Aires, deep into a soggy Brazilian rain forest, and up the frosty Swiss Alps -- to prove that even though political correctness is no longer a joke, there is plenty of comedy in stories of roaring do-gooders deafened by their own roar.
"The thriller and action story walks side by side with the tender relation between the flat-broke protagonist and his super-rich girlfriend, while both of them are being sucked into a maelstrom of events that are beyond their control, yet naturally interweave with their personal stories. One of the greatest talents Pour shows in writing this book is the ability of creating not just suspense and atmosphere, but also characters with unique but plausible, well-defined past, present and personality, so the reader feels their existence and wants to know more about them."
"There are tons of novels available, but the ability to write a singularly perfect story is rare. That's why I especially enjoyed Anthony Pour's work because in just a few pages he takes you into the lives of the characters he creates, gives you a sense of where they are, and then, at the end, never fails to surprise you." -- Alan Caruba, Bookviews
