Book Description

Poker player Matt Freeman knows life is a gamble, so when an oncologist offers an experimental gene therapy as a possible cure for the terminal cancer killing his eleven-year-old son Andrew, he takes a chance. The treatment works, and Matt feels like he's beaten the house. His elation is short-lived, however, because Andrew is soon killed in a freak accident.

Nearly a year later, he is still struggling with his loss when a midnight phone call begins with a single electrifying word: “Daddy?”

He races into the Nevada desert to find Andrew not only alive, but in possession of an incredible new ability and on the run from those he calls “bad people.” Now Matt must protect his son from enemies with seemingly endless resources—and the willingness to turn Las Vegas into a battle zone.


Approximately 88,000 words or 350 pages.

Matt Freeman is a professional poker player that knows better than most that life is a gamble. When his most precious possession, his son Andrew, is diagnosed with cancer, he takes a gamble on an experimental treatment that miraculously works. But death doesn't like to be cheated, and when Andrew dies a few months later in a freak house fire, Matt finds his life left in tatters. Then one day he gets a strange phone call that propels him into a maddening world of intrigue. His son is alive and the center of a terrifying conspiracy that will require more than the ability to bluff to survive.

The novel starts out strong. Anderson does a fine job of setting up the plot and building a relationship between the reader and Freeman. Freeman is a likable and well-developed protagonist that readers will want to support. As the plot moves forward, the readers will embrace Freeman's frantic quest for answers as their own.

But after the initial few chapters, Anderson falls into the "blockbuster movie" mode. He jumps back and forth between Freeman's first person account of events and third person omniscient as if cutting back and forth in a movie. It doesn't work. The reader is connected to Freeman, but then every other chapter Andersen cuts away and goes to some other remote scene that Freeman cannot possibly have known about. It is jarring and disruptive to the flow of the story, and more often than not feels like a faux attempt to build suspense. Which is unfortunately, because Anderson does just fine telling the story from Freeman's point of view to not need literary gimmicks.

Fortunately, Freeman is a strong enough protagonist that the reader will want to wade through the scene cuts to see what happens next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the download May 12, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fred Anderson's debut novel No Limit is a fun and fast read that will remind you of a great James Patterson (the early years) with just enough touches of Stephen King to keep it even more interesting. The action is fast-paced and left this reader wishing occasionally for the ability to hit pause - it is definitely a page-turner.

The story follows Matt Freeman, a professional poker player, who is consumed with the loss of his son when he receives a mysterious phone call - from his son. Matt's devastating loss and subsequent chase for the truth leads the reader on a path that often surprises and leaves more questions than it answers.

Definitely worth the download!

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of action October 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm really having trouble putting my thoughts together for this review. On the one hand, there is A LOT of action (which I'm a huge fan of) and the writing is high-quality. On the other hand, I just couldn't lose myself in this book like I wanted to.

I'm not sure I'm a fan of all the POVs given and there were several times POV jumps pulled me out of the story. This may be a book I would have enjoyed more if it had only been told from one or two POVs. I really didn't like the narration from the three bad guys' perspective: I felt Rudolph was just evil without motivation, which is one of my biggest pet peeves. And seeing so much from their perspective lost some of the suspense.

The pacing of the action was excellent and there was always some exciting car chase or nail-biting fight scene around the corner. However, the pacing - in terms of information - was a little off. For the first half or so, I felt bored by explanations of obvious things and then all of a sudden there are all these fantastic plot twists that are revealed with bland recaps. I also would have liked to be given more hints earlier as to what the Oz Project was - it was mentioned repeatedly, but no actual information was given until a big info dump when the ... (trying to phrase as to avoid spoilers) Project is "used."

I wasn't a huge fan of the dialogue, especially in emotional scenes. It felt stilted and didn't evoke the emotions that were described for me.

Also, I didn't buy all the times the hero won the fights (against hardened killers and attackers with superhuman strength), got out of certain situations, etc. He was just a little too lucky for my tastes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent storyline, but poorly edited. December 5, 2012

I loved this book, but the creativity of the artist would be honored by better editing. I am finding that most Kindle books are in very poor English. Fix it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant May 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow. I don't usually read sci-fi, but this story gripped and held me all the way through. Brilliant. The story involves the heartbreaking loss of a young son to a house-fire after he has just beaten cancer. Nothing is as it seems and the action intensifies from hereon. I loved the Vegas setting and the poker theme running through the story. The heroes are endearing and the villains heinous. Original, fast-paced, exciting. I'll definitely read more by Fred Anderson.

3.0 out of 5 stars A decent read.
This book was a fairly light read, with just enough techno stuff to make it interesting. It may not become a classic, but I escaped into it for a short while.

What makes this story so scary is that it isn't too far out to believable. It shows how genetic manipulation can go astray in the wrong hands.

I gave this novel a 5 star rating, but primarily only because it was a debut novel and very inexpensive when I bought it. Otherwise, I'd probably give it a 3 1/2 to 4 rating. Read more
