A young actress, involuntarily committed to City of Roses Psychiatric Hospital, plunges James Flynn into a dangerous new adventure when she claims one of the most powerful producers in Hollywood is trying to kill her.
Still convinced he's a secret agent for Her Majesty's Secret Service, Flynn springs into action, helps her escape and finds himself embroiled in a battle with a dangerous sociopath worth billions. In the process, he uncovers a high-tech conspiracy to control the mind of every human being on Earth.
With the help of his reluctant sidekick, Sancho, and a forgotten Hollywood sex symbol from the 1960s, Flynn faces off with Goldhammer and his private army in a desperate attempt to save the young actress...and save the world...once again.
Praise for Goldhammer:
"One of those books that has you laughing and turning pages well into the night.” —Len Boswell, Bestselling author of The Simon Grave Mysteries
“A riotous comic novel that’s also a legit page turner. A deftly plotted, swiftly paced thriller.” —R. Lee Procter, Author of The Million Dollar Sticky Note and Sugarball
“A fast-paced quixotic thriller that would make Miguel de Cervantes and Ian Fleming proud. The third James Flynn novel is a powerful cocktail of suspense, adrenaline and a whole lot of laughs. Orkin has the remarkable ability to keep the reader straddled between a genuine spy thriller and an off-the-wall comedy” —Joe Barret, Award-winning author of Managed Care
This is an entertaining novel for readers who like a humorous twist on the super spy character. Flynn is a character. He is crazy enough to get into all kinds of adventures. He is skilled enough, having read spy novels and watched movies, he manages most of the time to foil his enemies. Some of the scenes are humorous while others are outlandish. The fight scenes are a riot. I was amazed at how many times he survived when there was no way out. It's amazing that Flynn once again stumbles into an opportunity to save humanity from a greedy and powerful villain.
My favorite quote in the book: “Mr. Flynn, I've amassed many enemies in my rise, but you have proven to be the most dogged and unrelenting opponent I have ever encountered. I'm guessing that's because your elevator does not go all the way to the top.” (2805/3575)
Not only will be treated to an entertaining faux 007, you'll receive some insightful thoughts on advertising and brainwashing. There is some foul language and verbal phrases I would rather have never read but that aspect of the narrative is really toned down from the first novel in this series. There are some raunchy parts, examples of what bad guys say and do. I just tried to ignore those parts. I did find the bits of history at the beginning of every chapter interesting.
You can read my review of the first book in the series: You Only Live Once.
