Hi everyone --
Ok, Ok, I gave "Acid Test" a 10. But I wrote it, so that seems fair. Here's what some other folks have to say...
"This is great stuff -- A BOOK TO BE DEVOURED IN ONE SITTING." -- Otto Penzler, The Mysterious Bookshop
"TERRIFIC -- A COMPULSIVE READ. Kept me turning the pages so fast I nearly got blisters. The absolute definition of thrill-a-minute writing... like Tom Clancy on speed." -- Anthony Award Winning Author Lee Child
"I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN. Acid Test combines the best of high-tech thriller, intrigue, science fiction and suspense. The fiction about the future is well founded in current political realities and science. The characters come to life, the technical descriptions demonstrate significant research, and most of all LaManna writes with passion." -- Desert Storm Supreme Air Commander General Chuck Horner, USAF (Retired)
"AN ABSOLUTE WINNER... brilliant vignettes which are positively heart-stopping in their execution. I hope that LaManna sees fit to write to write more novels. BASED ON ACID TEST, I'D BE WILLING TO READ HIS GROCERY LIST." -- Joe Hartlaub The AOL Book Report, Inc.
"A LIVELY FIRST NOVEL... the narrative moves swiftly, sizzling an acid trail around the globe as it speeds toward a high-stakes conclusion..." -- Publishers Weekly
"ROSS LAMANNA HAS WRITTEN A SUPERIOR, HIGHLY ENTERTAINING THRILLER... It is an excellent book for the summer and an excellent debut." -- Larry Gandle, Deadly Pleasures Mystery Magazine
"A page-turner... LaManna's Hollywood background shows up in the intricate, cinematic plotting -- and in the bigger-than-life characterizations. EXPLOSIVE, EXCITING, AND HARD TO PUT DOWN." -- Jane Adams, Amazon.com
"GREAT ACTION SCENES, AND A FRESH BAD GUY. THIS ONE HAS IT ALL. Five Stars, Highest Recommendation." -- Susan Rose, editor, The Snooper Review Mystery Newsletter
"THE DENOUEMENT WILL HAVE READERS FLIPPING THE FINAL 100 PAGES LIKE PANCAKES." -- Pohla Smith, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
"ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING AND FRIGHTENING NOVELS THAT I HAVE READ IN A LONG TIME. Mr. LaManna has an absolutely bang-on sensitivity for the kind of nuances that will capture and hold a reader's eye and attention. " -- Ellie Miller
Three copies were registered and released as of mid March, 2002 -- two in the Los Angeles area and one in Scottsdale, Arizona. Please drop me a note at www.RossLaManna.com and tell me how you liked the book!
