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.

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!

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.

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.

I've been reading Fred for quite a while and I love all of his books. He has a way of taking me right into the action and the characters are always very believable. I look forward to many more books by Fred.

No Limit was a fun, quick read in one of my favorite fiction categories: Action-Adventure. If you like reading about Lee Child's Jack Reacher or liked watching Bruce Willis protect his family (and the cities of New York and LA) in the Die Hard movie franchise, you'll love No Limit. Matt Freeman is an up and coming poker player who wins a jackpot only to lose his whole life when his son, who he was supposed to be watching, is killed in an accidental house fire. A year later, Matt is struggling to cope with the grief of losing both his son and his estranged wife without the numbing pull of alcohol. When his phone rings just after midnight, Matt is sure another tragedy awaits. When he answers the phone, the voice on the other line stops his heart. "Daddy?"

The remainder of the tale is one of a Father desperate to redeem himself and protect his family at all costs, despite the seemingly limitless resources of his enemies. Like Bruce Willis' John McClane or Lee Child's Jack Reacher, Matt's ability to continue fighting through repeated physical injury requires a healthy suspension of disbelief. What is realistic, however, is Matt's emotional humanity and humility throughout the ordeal. Freeman is never confident that he can overcome and shows the reader the considerable and justifiable fear he has for his own life, or worse, his inability to protect his son yet again.

The action draws you in, and the plot twists keep the narrative from being too predictable. If you are a long-time reader of Fred or his wife Robyn's blogs, you will also be tickled with the "easter eggs" hidden throughout the book.

This is a great read and definitely worth more than the price of admission!
