I'll Catch You by Jesse Kellerman
  

Lovereading view...

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A nice human tale turns into a spy thriller and then turns again into a satirical romp. This is very clever stuff with the lovely central theme of internationally successful espionage novels actually carrying codes for foreign agents to receive their instructions from. When our protagonist takes on the job he has no idea what has hit him, he just wanted to be a successful author and grabbed an opportunity. Wow. This is great fun.

If you like Jesse Kellerman you might also like to read books by Alex Grecian and Matthew Plampin.

Synopsis

I'll Catch You by Jesse Kellerman

When the world's bestselling thriller writer, William de Vallee, disappears from his luxury yacht while sailing off the LA coast, his best friend and fellow writer Arthur Pfefferkorn decides to pick up where he left off. But little does Arthur know that this impulsive decision is about to change his life for ever...We want to tell you more about this novel. We wish we could explain how spectacular and absolutely unexpected it is; how it will burn itself onto your brain for ever. But the truth is we could never do it justice...The only way you'll understand it is to read it.

Reviews

'[I'll Catch You is] fun in completely unexpected ways. Only a great writer like Kellerman could make it all work this well.' RT Book Reviews

'[Kellerman] ruminates on the practice of writing, the experience of sudden literary success, the nature of friendship, and the contrasts between the lives of writers and spies. [I'll Catch You] is very funny - and insightful.' Booklist

'Another brilliant performance from Kellerman.' Kirkus Review on I'll Catch You

'A writer of great imagination and skill.' Sunday Telegraph

'Kellerman has a gift for creating compelling characters as well as for crafting an ingenious plot that grabs the reader and refuses to let go.' Publishers Weekly

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
