Book Description

Nothing is ever what it seems in Hollywood.

Behind the glitz and glamor is a desperate society hanging on by its fingertips. A private investigator with a troubled past suspects that someone is trying to set him up. As he follows the bloody trail of evidence, he is led into a violent and unexpected No Man's Land.

NO MAN'S LAND is a brutal love story that goes into the corrupt heart of the American Dream.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Hit from Fraser December 8, 2011
By Claudia
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like all the books I've read by Ian Fraser, No Man's Land defies categorization. Is it a mystery? Yes, in that there are elements common to mysteries - there are unsolved crimes, good guys and bad guys (although telling one from the other can be a bit of a problem), policemen and a private detective. Is it a thriller? Oh my yes . . . without doubt. The closest I can come to giving a label to this novel would be to call it a 'psychological thriller'.

Like other characters who have taken center stage in this author's novels, the primary character is interesting, to say the least. At times, he shows signs of being a heroic character, at other times he inspires the reader to feel pity for him, sometimes he seems the innocent who has been caught up in a scenario beyond his control. But, also like other novels by Fraser, nothing is quite what it seems to be.

I don't like to try to do a synopsis of novels for a review. What I like to do is say whether I liked a book or didn't like it, and why a book inspired me to feel either way. This is another one that I definitely liked, but it's also one that I felt led me down the garden path, so to speak, a journey so full of twists and turns that by the end I was no longer sure I was even on the path, much less in the garden.

I love the fact that I couldn't figure out the 'who-done-it' in this book. I don't think most other people will be able to figure that out either. I hate so-called mystery novels where the mystery is obvious before one has hardly begun to read the book, and this certainly isn't one of those.

Remember watching Bobby's shower scene in Dallas, that's how I felt at the end of this book. Cheated by the ending.
