Jack Wakes Up by Seth Harwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I love Jack! He was an actor who fell into the kind of negative behaviors that come with fame and money. Successful in cleaning up his life after a public fiasco that put his career on hold, the money began to run out and boredom was setting in. A meeting with an old friend and a decision to make a few quick bucks sends him off on a wild adventure. This fast paced thriller doesn't even give you time to breathe between one gut-wrenching, jaw-dropping moment to the next. We follow Jack through the streets of San Francisco as his quest pulls him deeper into the world of San Francsico drug dealing, and post cold war European drama.
Despite the fact his own life is threatened, Jack finds finds a resolve and determination he didn't know he had. He's on a wild ride that gives his life a spark it hasn't seen for quite a while. From the bouncers to the drug lords to the cocaine loving Czechoslovakians, there isn't a dull character in the book.
Warning: don't read the last chapter before going to bed ... if you want to sleep anyway.
When you're finished and starting through JWU withdrawals, you'll be begging Seth to publish the next two "Jack" stories in print! Well, Seth? (In the meantime, you can hear them at sethharwood.com)
