After several attempts to read this book, once I got past the first couple of chapters, Martini drew me in with the romance of the publishing business along with the dark side of the business. The sex-appeal of Jack certainly didn't hinder! Once I understood the publishing business, everything fell into place. The need for a pseudoname, looking for the right "look" for the jacket picture, to marketing for film was fascinating and addictive. I quickly fell into "lust" with Jack, and didn't want to believe he would manipulate Abbey. Martini has a very surprising way of presenting and climaxing the plot. Really enjoyed the story and will look for more of his work.

Under the name of Gable Cooper, Abby Chandlis has penned a novel worth six million dollars. When Jack enters her life, Abby is convinced he is perfect to pose as the fictitious author. The success of her novel rockets Jack into stardom, then Abby begins to suffer a series of deadly accidents

One of those that keeps you guessing right up to the last 50 pages. The ending still has me chuckling! A good read.

This is a wonderfully written book that really opened my eyes into the world of publishing. It will keep you on the edge of your seat with every turn of the page. I do not recommend starting this book at night as you will not be able to put it down, once started. I learned that the hard way. This is another of those great books that I would like to see Hollywood make into a movie, I am sure that they would probably screw it up, but I think that we have suffered through enough Godzilla and Spiderman movies!!!

The List ¿ Steve Martini
Abby, a successful lawyer in her own right, but unhappy. She longs to become a writer. Her passion is the novel she¿s slaved two years over. She knows it is a winner, however, even as a lawyer, she is ¿shy¿ and doesn¿t want the limelight that comes with a success. Abby heirs a stand in, the handsome Jack to pretend he is the author of this book and all of it¿s glory. How will success change Abby¿s life, how will the pretence change Jacks, how will the charade change those around her? In this gripping twist of fate and friendship, you will travel, and be swept away by the unknown and learn that people aren¿t always who they seem to be and money can become your biggest enemy.

I liked this book, however, it become a bit drawn out. A little more then half way through I was ready for it to make it¿s point and move on. But I¿m glad I stuck it out, the end is amazing. The entire story you know ¿who done it¿ and then¿surprise¿just watch your back.

This was the first Steve Martini book I've read. I had a hard time putting it down. I loved the ending. Not at all what I expected. The way it was written almost made it feel like I was right there. I'll read more of Martini's books.

I thought it was a great book. I haven't read any of Martini's books, but I'm willing to after reading this one. I liked the sudden turning point in the book. I was confused about who 'did it.' I recommend this this book.
