Publisher's Summary

The only thing more dangerous than fake news is fake truth in this exhilarating thriller by #1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Goldberg.

Author Ian Ludlow writes great adventures...but after helping Chinese movie star Wang Mei defect to the United States, he becomes the accidental hero of a real-life espionage thriller. Now he’s stuck with the actress - and suffering a nasty case of writer’s block - when he stumbles into a secret Russian plot using "fake news" to outrage Americans into believing a terrifying lie.

It’s up to Ian and Margo French, his researcher-turned-spy, to discover the connection between a barbaric drug lord in Mexico, a homicidal maniac in California, a rogue citizen army in Texas, a raging TV pundit in New York, and two dead tourists in Portugal...before the president of the United States makes a catastrophic mistake that could resurrect the Soviet Union.

The only weapon Ian has against the global conspiracy, and the assassins who are closing in on him, is his vivid imagination. If his story isn’t a killer thriller, he’s dead.

Ian Ludlow vs the Russian spies

Ian Ludlow, author, nerdy James Bond fan, and accidental spy, is back. This time he has crossed paths with a Russian spy plot to plunge the US into a war and resurrect the Soviet Union. Can our inept hero save the day? You already know the answer to that, but getting there is the fun part.

I have seen some reviews saying that this book is "too liberal". I didn't feel that way... it's a reflection of our times, albeit through a bit of a fun house mirror.

In the end, it was a fun listen. I recommend it but suggest you read the previous books first to get a lot of the backstory references.

I love this series but Wingnuts beware!!!

Absolutely hilarious take on the surreal atmosphere of today's nexus of the political arena and the daily news cycle. But Conservatives should be wary, you'll be triggered.

Mediocre

I would advise you read the synopsis before reading the book. I had a hard time getting engaged in the story for the first 17 chapters,. The synopsis will provide context to keep you going. It’s an OK read. A good book to get on a special but not worth a full credit.
