Price: $4.04
Jack is 29, penniless, and undiscovered. His novel is being rejected by literary agents as fast as he can submit it. But his mother has a solution: she contacts the producers of the hit daytime show At Home With Pam and Pete pretending Jack is terminally ill. By the time Jack discovers her deceit, he is being offered TV exposure and a million pound publishing deal. Should he tell the truth and remain undiscovered; or live a lie and have everything he wants?

    Engaging and deftly plotted -- I really enjoyed this book, in which Phil Lowe skilfully builds a credible edifice on the cumulative impact of one preposterous lie. Its central character Jack and his scheming mother are the catalysts for the breakdown of a TV marriage definitely not made in heaven. No one takes the moral high ground here -- least of all the author. Just as you think someone is doing a bad thing, some good emerges. By the end, you do almost start to wonder if pretending to be terminally ill is really any worse than the countless other ways people vie for attention in today's overcrowded media marketplace.

    Excellent. Really enjoyable and literally hard to put down. Plot was tight and refreshing, characters full. Very readable but thinkable too.
