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).

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!

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!

It helped that I am familiar with the area and aware of the businesses in the area. I found it interesting. It would be great for someone wanting to know some of the business history in the area.

HASH(0x9cedd084) 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.
