I just finished reading Pierce the Veil. This is a must read book. I also read Rainbow's End the first book to the sequel. I recommond both of these book. If you like drama you will love these books. I can't wait for the next one to come out. It was really hard to put the book down. I really love to read and the book must be good and this book is so good. I think anyone who read it will really like. As I said a must read book. Michele
An ever-escalating saga of power and fierce competition Oct 30, 2004
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.

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?
Enjoyed not being able to put it down. Jul 7, 2004
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).
