From the opening to the middle and on towards a remarkable and intriguing crescendo, I found myself unable to put this captivating novel aside. I wanted more and more I received. The mere fact that the author took his time and researched the nuances of all of the details to make this story wonderful…one would want to know…“Is this stuff really real?” “Are there really places like that?” “Can this happen”, “Am I really free, or just playing the part of a freed person that is directed to re-audition on a daily basis for something that is actually…a very bad movie?”
