Product Description

Product 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it in 24 hours & loved it! 5 Nov 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Oh man, I haven't been that gripped since Dean Koontz's "Fear Nothing" or Harlan Coben's "Tell No One". You know the type of story that grips you? I'd read an excerpt at the back of a zombie book "The Gathering Dead" (love zombies!) and bought it straight away. I'm glad I did as I was a bit stuck into the Z genre!

The beginning was very sad but I loved the way Matt, as a main character, grew into a proper super hero (but a believable one). The story was exciting with strong, fun characters, I was really hoping there would be a sequel but by the end of the book I realised I couldn't see how there would be; as I kind of think the author burnt some bridges....
There was just one flaw where I thought "there is no way the General would have turned up on his own" but then considering the other stuff I was believing it was a minor criticism!

I have just downloaded all of Fred Anderson's other books on the strength of this one so I hope they're as good. There's nothing better than finding a new, brilliant author but nothing sadder than finishing such a good book with no sequel!

Simply put this book is right up my alley, my cup of tea & my idea of a fabulous read. I'm now going off to google Mood Fish as I want one.....

Thank you Mr Anderson but please may I have a sequel?

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2 stars--Amazon star rankings don't really suffice 17 Jun 2011
By Julie A. Dawson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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. The plot pacing is well done and has enough twists and turns to satisfy the most diehard fan of paranormal thrillers. If you can forgive the author for interrupting the story by pulling you away from the protagonist at awkward moments, it is definitely worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the download 12 May 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
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 6 Oct 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
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. I couldn't bring myself to care for him either - I didn't care that he got his son back or whether or not he reconciled with his wife.

All that being said, I did feel compelled to read on in search of an HEA. The action and plot are fast-moving, original and entertaining.

After writing this, I see a few reviewers compare the author to Dean Koontz - and that may be part of my problem... I've never been a Koontz fan.

Conclusion

If you like lots of action, you might want to check this one out. If you're in search of great character development and human relationships, you might want to skip this one.

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

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.
