Book Description

July 12 2006
Max Ratek, the notorious Michelangelo of Wall Street takeover artists, quietly plots a takeover battle for a Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio headquartered tire company. Ratek's plan goes awry when the tire company's investor relations professional, who is battling the ravages of MS, prematurely discovers Ratek's scheme and launches a preemptive first strike against this titanic robber baron. Meanwhile, Put-in-Bay resident and Washington Post investigative reporter, Emerson Moore, discovers Ratek's sinister plan. Emerson is drawn into the abyss of corporate intrigue as he chases the story in the midst of sailing adventures, an executive's mysterious death, an explosion at Perry's Monument, a ruthless CEO and a dangerous blonde ice queen who works for Ratek. Pierce the Veil and its extraordinary cast of characters takes readers behind the chilling scenes of corporate life to an unexpected, thrilling climax.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed not being able to put it down. July 7 2004
Format:Hardcover
As In his first book, "Rainbow's End," Bob Adamov kept my attention throughout the book with many of the same characters, numerous subtle hints to the outcomes, as well as twists and turns that were totally unexpected to me. The reading was comfortable, exciting, and easy, almost reminding me of my younger years reading Hardy Boys mysteries (albeit much more in-depth). I really enjoyed how Bob uses real places like restaurants and bars in Put-In-Bay and elsewhere that I've visited, describing them to a "T." I'd suspect many of the people are real with only their names changed in his stories. It was fun trying to discern the fiction from the facts!
The ending was again different than I expected (as also in "Rainbow's End"), but again left me somewhat emotionally touched in a very positive way. I'm looking forward to his third in this series and hopefully more after that. Bob's books are also very appropriate for younger readers (I'm in my early 50's).

4.0 out of 5 stars A Lot of Fun June 12 2004
Format:Hardcover
Bob Adamov is improving fast. His first book in the series, "Rainbow's End" was fascinating and fast-paced, but a little smoothing of the edges would have helped. Well, he has smoothed the edges and come out with a book that's a whole lot of fun. "Pierce the Veil" is a well-done yarn that gives you bad guys on Wall Street and glimpses of some of the wondrous places of Ohio. Give it a shot as the perfect summer read, or, if you are as intrigued as I am by the uniqueness of Ohio, which is how I discovered his books in the first place, BUY THIS BOOK!! Then, if you do like it, as you probably will, go back and buy the first one. It may not be as smooth, but it's a heck of a lot of fun, too!

Format:Hardcover
Bob uses local color and history to create a background for an exciting and absorbing adventure. His villan is "villanous" and his hero is believable. Great reading!

5.0 out of 5 stars An ever-escalating saga of power and fierce competition Oct. 30 2004
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Pierce the Veil by author Bob Adamov is the sequel to his earlier novel, Rainbow's End. Another adventure featuring "Washington Post" investigative reporter Emerson Moore, Pierce the Veil draws its irrepressible newshound into a cat-and-mouse game of corporate intrigue. Sailing adventures, a prominent executive's early demise, an utterly unforgiving CEO and a blonde ice queen who cannot be trusted all figure in an ever-escalating saga of power and fierce competition, heating up to a spectacular climax.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pierce The Veil July 30 2004
By Carol S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I found this book intriguing, at the least. Once you start, you can't put it down. Bob obviously has a gift for good story telling. My question is: when's the MOVIE coming out?
