How does it feel to have the tables turned and you end up being the story that you were often chasing?
Jake Carlson works for the TV show American Outrage. He is used to doing almost anything to go after the "big story" for the tabloid news. Jake's wife, Karen, passed away after a lengthy illness. Now he is facing problems with his adopted son, Sam, who is getting into fights at school. The main reason for the fighting was due to the fact that the kids would tell Sam he did not look like his father. Sam felt like he didn't "belong" and asked Jake to find his real mother. Jake was reluctant to agree to this request because he knew the records of the adoption were gone. That is how Jake and Karen managed to get Sam. Sam disagreed and told Jake that there are things on the Internet about everyone.
Jake is sent to Syracuse to tape a show and luckily this is where Sam's adoption took place from an Albanian run orphanage. Once Jake starts to investigate, he starts to uncover many things that are taking place like the Albanian mafia working in the U.S., a child trafficking ring, and a corrupt politician.
Jake is attacked and this is only the beginning of the violence that will continue to get worse. Jake and his son are now the much-wanted subjects of the media because they now want this "big story".
Is Jake successful at what he is trying to do and is he able to escape the media? Who can he trust?
Tim Green delivers a ten with his latest thriller. The audio has plenty of suspense. The reader, Scott Brick, does an excellent job of making the listener feel the emotions that Jake is going through as he tries to help Sam find his real mother. The listeners will be able to picture the story taking place with a vivid picture in their mind. The author does a wonderful job of making the listener see what happens when the tables are turned and you are now the big story. The listener knows that Jake will do anything to help Sam find his real mother and his passion comes through very clear. Tim Green always manages to come up with an interesting topic for each new book and this one will not disappoint you. Be sure to add American Outrage to your list.
