From Back

Suppose there was a TV series that broke all the rules and gave the public exactly what it wanted? Gratuitous nudity and sex, doused in plenty of state-of-the-art blood.

It's here and all America is watching. The Mercenary: its ratings are ready to pop the ozone and the show is swallowing the nations prime time...whole.

The creator of the series, Alan White, is riding a juggernaut, but it is a juggernaut that has already accelerated out of control. News stories begin to mirror what's happening on screen. And then it gets worse.

Plots that haven't even been written yet begin to blood-blossom on the streets. The Mercenary is coming to claim his cut of the action. And its only a small step from fiction to the real world...

From shadowy editing suite to glaring boulevard, CREATED BY follows Alan White through the dark heart of Hollywood, where the worst impulses of human nature are the most lucrative currency, and the border between reality and make-believe is as fragile as a television screen.


This is a hardcover edition published in 1994. This edition contains 324 pages. This is an ex library book.

4 out of 10

I found the plot of this book predictable and the character's felt fake. The format, which kept switching from script, to character, to real life, was extremely annoying and distracted from the story. Additionally, it wasn't really very thrilling or scary. I wouldn't bother reading this again.
