Fake Truth Book Review

Cover Price: $1.99 Kindle

Fans of bestselling author, Lee Goldberg, and his Ian Ludlow series will welcome the third installment of the series, Fake Truth where Ian helps a Chinese actress defect to the US and then finds himself in the middle of a real-life spy espionage situation where he involves Margo French, his sidekick. As usual, this is a comedy of errors, and readers will be on the edges of their seats, not only with laughter, but some building suspense that Goldberg manages to include in the story.

Goldberg has a vivid imagination and that’s what makes this series so fun. There is plenty of good humor without graphic violence, sex, or language, and Ludlow, who is trying to write (he is a bestselling writer), but can’t seem to get it together, is so involved in the serious problems he faces, he may just lose his life.

Goldberg’s characters are well-developed, and the story, while bizarre at times, is easy to follow. The characters don’t seem like they are real – rather more like that in a comic book, and that makes this a fun novel to read. However, in this novel Goldberg makes a huge mistake and offends everyone with a brain with a liberal political statement. This should be unacceptable for a bestselling writer, and most of us who are conservative will find someone else to read from now on, since there are hundreds of other authors and like most of us, some of them may have brains.

If you are a liberal, you’ll enjoy this installment as much as the others. If not, you may want to skip this one and read an author with a brain who thinks like you.
