A great mystery. The book has some twist and turns I didn't see coming! A book for any audience who likes stories about journalism, politics and big business.

My favorite kind of guilty pleasure binge read. The Anonymous source is a modern and fun mystery with bright, creative and sexy characters. A. C. has a real gift for zooming in on a scene and capturing the physical experience of being there. The book is set in post 911 New York City and his characters embody the struggle, scramble and identity crisis of the times. The main character Alex Vane is drifting after the death of his parents and he becomes obsessed by health food and exercising. He falls for Camila Gray, a moody professor at NYU who spends her evenings in an empty apartment meditating on the heaviness of her childhood. Their relationship opens up his world to his own past and his intuition. Together they escape a murderer and embark on a quest that takes them from the bustle of New York to a tropical beach on Kona. I was constantly surprised and delighted by this story. It was a real pleasure to read and I can’t wait for the sequel!!!

This book is a MUST read! I am a mystery/thriller fan, but AC Fuller is one I have added to my new favorites list! The Anonymous Source kept me turning pages well into the night when so many other things needed to be done! I was drawn into this book instantly with the fast-paced plot filled with mystery and intrigue right from the start. With every page there was a new dimension of suspense that kept me wanting more! Even if you are not into this genre of books, you need to read The Anonymous Source! Exceptionally written and worth the read! Cannot wait for the next book.

Wow. I'm blown away. Full disclosure, suspenseful thrillers are not my genre, but this book was amazing. It caught and held my attention because it was the perfect blend of plot complexity, tight writing, layered and textured characters, all set against an extremely authentic-feeling backdrop. I FELT like I was in NYC without being bogged in details (or Hawaii, which was a lovely counterbalance to the urban hustle), in the same way that I FELT the authenticity of the journalistic world our hero, Alex Vane, operates in. I was steeped, and I loved it. Alex Vane is a fun character to follow, (the kind of guy who keeps a king-sized bed in an NYC studio apartment, so that tells you a lot right there). He's obsessed with his physique, maybe a bit of a playboy, but with a heart of gold. But it was Camila, his erstwhile partner, who really captivated me. Emotionally attuned, witty, and smart, I loved this character. She was not just a foil for Alex as they seek to unravel who killed her professor ex-lover, but his equal, with an almost uncanny ability to read people and situations. I loved this line about her as she contemplated her family: "Generations of congealed suffering moved through her." And that brings me to the prose. AC Fuller's writing style is a joy to read. Not stiff in the slightest (as I sort of imagined--unfairly perhaps--was the norm for this genre), he layers in beautiful but spare detail, keeps the prose tight, the plot moving, without ever sacrificing style or voice or atmosphere, and with a healthy dose of humor peppered in for good measure. As if that weren't enough, this novel is set just after the events of 9/11, and Fuller has managed to capture the aftermath of that reality, the shifting changes in news and how we perceive and receive it. The amount of work that went into this book is evident in the effortlessness in which I was able to absorb it. A five star read in every way

A stunning first novel. If John Grisham had been a journalist instead of a lawyer, this is the sort of book he would have written.

Brilliant Book, I loved it!! There were so many things I enjoyed about the story, especially the detail and background that the Author has put into each of the characters. The plot is quite elaborate, and I like the twist and turns throughout the story. Alex Vane and Camila Gray, two of the main characters bounce off each other really well. I know I’m enjoying a book, when all I want to do is read it, and do absolutely nothing else, and this is certainly one of those books. Alex Vane had no idea how big a story the murder trial of Eric Santiago was going to be, when he sat in court on day one of the trial. Mind you it wasn’t a normal occurrence to receive an anonymous tip off, that the accused was innocent of murder. It was pretty convenient for the police to pin the murder of Professor John Martin on Santiago, just because he was walking past the Professor in the park at the time of him falling down dead. Alex wasn’t used to roadblocks when it came to submitting a story to be published, however that’s exactly what happened when he started to question Santiago’s innocence. There were those in the city that didn’t want the real murder to come to light, and if Alex wasn’t careful, he could find himself and those around him in very real danger. Do yourself a favour and read this book, it really is that good.

A man who is a reporter with a company that has just suddenly merged with another company, making it the most feared merger of all time.

A secret that can destroy the biggest company merger of the digital media world. What happens to Alex and the truth will have to be something that readers find out on their own. The Anonymous Source by A.C. Fuller is one riveting read. This thriller will give readers everything and more. Action, suspense, and danger hang in the air like a thick fog on every page. I was impressed with A.C. Fuller's way of luring readers straight into a tragedy and then into a deadly scenario. A fast-paced adventure that will continue to excite and lure readers into its plot every time. A.C. Fuller is indeed a master at creating a story line that is complex, fascinating, and will keep readers' adrenaline pumping. The Anonymous Source is by far the most promising thriller I have read in a while. I enjoyed reading this stunning and well-written novel. The writing is incredible. Powerful, exciting, and a highly entertaining thriller. Overall, I would highly recommend The Anonymous Source to readers everywhere.

The Anonymous Source is an amazing book from beginning to end. I really liked how the book flowed and how A.C Fuller describes the characters and the places it’s like you are taking the journey with Alex Van. I really liked how there are two murders and you know who killed them, but you are trying to figure out who the source is that is helping Alex piece together the article to take down Denver Bice. I love how Fuller uses New York on September 11, 2001 as a place to start to set the stage for and incredible mystery. I really can’t wait to read the second book The Inverted Pyramid which comes out in summer 2016. *I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review.*
