Publisher's Summary

Carl "Granny" Granville is a young, talented writer who is given the chance of a lifetime: a contract to ghostwrite a sure-fire best-selling political thriller. The inside source will be known only as Gideon. His real identity will never be revealed. But the information Granny receives - and then turns into a book - will change the course of history. Then the murders begin - first his editor, then the gorgeous neighbor with whom he's been having an affair. The mysterious go-between has disappeared. And his publisher has never heard of Gideon or Granny. Suddenly Carl Granville is a man alone, on the run, and wanted for murder.

Gideon

First of all, the whole premise of this story was far fetched. The positive aspect was that the main character was likeable and his efforts at solving the mystery were pretty good. However, it was too wordy and had too many murders. It kept me occupied when I had little else to listen to, but that's about all. I was glad when I finished it.

Hard to describe

This book seems written so that you're supposed to be sucked in by the mystery of it all, but it's kind of ham-handed.

The main character is a self-important but unpublished author, and really, he just comes across as one-dimensional, whiny and annoying.

That's just the start of the slipshod character development; a ton of time was devoted to giving back stories to characters who would only live for a few chapters, but very little time was given to developing the two main characters into likable protagonists.

The story itself is moderately interesting, and there are two "twists" at the end; one is actually a decent surprise, and the other is so obvious that you can see it coming for about half the book.

Meh, if you have extra credits and time to kill, go ahead.
