Product Description

Product Description

The thriller, Peak Experience, is a former #1 Amazon Best Seller and recent First Place Winner for Best Popular Fiction in the Independent Publisher Book Awards, and a USA Book News National Best Books Award Finalist. Since its publication, it has remained highly ranked among Political Suspense and Spy-Espionage Thrillers.
SYNOPSIS - From the moment Trip Price is hired by a charismatic firm, danger, romance and murder accompany him on a volatile voyage sweeping principal ports of the world. Corrupt double-dealers, pay-for-play, passion, and threatening encounters permeate this non-stop thriller as the demand for survival drives characters into volcanic relationships. How can one man, entrapped by evil, conquer his fears and disrupt a deception intended to annihilate a way of life? The Espionage/Political thriller, Peak Experience rivets readers page-bound as a financial monstrosity and tentacles of international subterfuge become as real as the lead stories in today’s headline news.

HASH(0xa0a42fe4) out of 5 stars Did I read a different novel? June 24 2009
By Scott Oliphant - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
There was a certain amount of tedium involved in reading this book. For the first half, the "action" (and I use the term loosely) is stuck in LA. It plods along until you finally board the world's largest cruise ship that is (ridiculously) full of dangerous "bad guys" bound for exotic ports of call and extreme sports. This, I thought, must be the turning point. Sadly, the story begins to sputter out as the author closes off any avenue that might prove interesting - no direct engagement with the bad guys, no excitement of setting, no catharsis of Peak Experience. As for the exotic ports of call, perhaps the author has not actually visited these destinations because he is unable to convey the sense of majesty, beauty and mystery associated with any of them.

The characterizations are generally cardboard stereotypes. Arguably, the most development is given to the main character who is not much of a protagonist. The story seems to move forward despite any of his actions (or inaction). He is painted as a series of contradictions and is not very likeable. I just couldn't find myself rooting for him. By the end, I just didn't care.

HASH(0xa0a4324c) out of 5 stars The fine line between fraud and making money... April 28 2012
By Cheryl M-M - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This started out initially with a quite a good idea conceptually. Showing how a financial pyramid scam works and in this case the firm has an eery Scientology feel to it. The reader is shown how the line between morality and money making often becomes skewed. Unfortunately I think the author got a little carried away and it ended with too many cooks in the kitchen or in this case a multitude of government agencies, terrorists, private investigators and those are just the good guys. I felt there were too many things going on at the same time, which made it unbelievable instead of the something I could relate to. It was also a little long winded and could have been made more compact.

HASH(0xa0a4348c) out of 5 stars Are You Sure This Is His First Novet? Feb. 1 2009
By Clyde H. Snider - Published on
Format: Paperback
Don't get me wrong! It's not perfect! But it is very well thought out and, because of the plot twists, does a great job of keeping the reader alert and wondering what will happen next. We not only get a terrific story with plenty of action and suspense, but we also get to dip our toes into various cultures as the USS Pinnacle King, filled with terrorists and government agents, circles the world.

HASH(0xa0a43708) out of 5 stars Peak Experience March 2 2009
By Vikki Mitchell - Published on
Format: Paperback
Peak Experience is Bud connell's FIRST novel??? Wow! He is right-on and timely with his characters, the trip around the world on a luxury cruise and terrorists! It was exciting to tour the world with Trip Price and the lovely Miss O'Looney. We were able to experience the exotic ports along the way as we found Trip having "peak experience" in business, love, and finally fear and heroism! What a great story, an exciting and timely read. It was thrilling!
With a dozen of the largest luxury cruise ships now being built, Bud is timely in his setting. It seems that he has always been ahead of the curve.
Can't wait for the second book!

HASH(0xa0a439fc) out of 5 stars Outstanding First Novel Jan. 8 2009
By Ann Becker - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was lucky enough to be given a copy of Peak Experience by a friend. I read it over the holidays and decided the book was one of the best gifts I received. I couldn't believe this was a first book for author Bud Connell. I fell in love with the characters, Trip Price and Julie O'Lonney, and was constantly surprised by the plot twists. Treat yourself to Peak Experience and live vicariously through Trip as he travels the world, makes big bucks, falls in love and finds himself fighting the really bad guys. This is a thriller that delivers. Enjoy!
