Truly a book you can't put down with the likes of Galveston and Murphy taking you around the world. Not to mention their quick wit humor!
This is a book you can recommend to anyone and I am doing just that!

Flapjack will have you putting off your laundry and dishes for a later time. I tried to drag out the end of the book so it would not end. Now I'll have to wait for the sequel. How much longer will we have to wait for the next book!?

Testing the Waters (The Elements of Life) The humor in this read cracked me up and it was interesting to read about their different ideas and tactics. All in all, a good book.

Excellent read! The characters are fun and witty. If you enjoy authors like James Patterson, you will enjoy this book. Atta Boy to this new author. I am looking forward to the next adventure of Galveston and crew.

I would like to give it a 3.5 star rating if I could. Good story, well written. Sometimes I lost interest and skipped some paragraphs, but otherwise a pleasant read. This is my first book from this author, but will look for more of his books.

If you enjoy well-written sentences this book will either disgust or amuse you, but Ganninger is a natural story-teller. He's fun in a "wait, tell me what happened next - way" and he loves his characters. You will find a "myriad" of what he seems to think are fancy vocabulary words and he uses them over and over as if they are literary totems. Most of the time they are used incorrectly so if it matters to you that you really can't "reverberate" your voice "across a room" try another writer. If not, try Ganninger - how many books do you find where the economics nerd gets to be a hero?

Extremely intricate plot line, but well done. And the humor is refreshing. Bantering between two main characters is well done. I really liked this book even though it was about something I know next to nothing about. I particularly like the handling of the romance. Love without horrible, steamy sex. And even the language was pretty good. I get really tired of having to do my own editing of filthy language. Sometimes I just give up and don't read the book.

I read a lot, and I belong to a number of daily book blogs that feature books, (for little or no money), by new or unknown authors . It's not so much the money savings that is the draw for me as it is the exciting prospect of discovering the next Baldacci or Ludlum or Archer etc. I'm also a sucker for collections and enjoy everything from John Wells and Jack Reacher to Serge Storms.

More to the point I "bought" Flapjack in December of 2013 after it was featured by one of the daily blogs. There it languished for almost a year and a half within the bowels of my Kindle Paperwhite along with lots of other unread gems. Well, for some unknown reason I decided to read it last week, and I just finished it.

Wow! Really an engaging read with enough action for any spy story with a hint of humor, (well., maybe more than a hint), and nice twists and turns to the plot, I immediately bought the sequel to Flapjack, Peking Duck, and I'm sure I'll be buying the next two in the series while keeping and eye out for more. These are believable, (sort of), real human characters with great personality development. I would love to see one or more of these books brought to film one day, but that's a story for another day.

In Short, "Bravo Mr. Ganninger, you have a new fan!"

A burned out economist and a former BLACK OPS Operative join forces to bust out of their cubicle job world and bumble their way thru a jungle of killers and world altering energy discoveries. Flying back and forth from U.S. to Mexico, England, Scotland and South America (I think). All the flying around and chasing and shooting keeps you confused and on the edge of your seat. There are even a couple of hotties to keep the boys on their toes. They link up with a tech guru that keeps them ahead of the FBI guys they are helping and the Black Ops guys connected to the politicians and they all want the Black Box that belongs to the Professor
but they haven't figured out that there are two boxes that don't work. A James Patterson style of read..............Yummy...read"um up.
