Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

President Andrew MacIntyre was having a pretty good first year in the Oval Office.  Suddenly, during what should have been a peaceful Christmas season, he’s facing one of the worst national security crises in American history.  And it’s being masterminded out of a sleazy, New Mexico strip joint?  What the hell?

Is this a political thriller?  Or is it science fiction?  A zany comedy?  Perhaps it’s a love story.  Whatever it is, it’s a riveting page-turner with a little sex appeal, and a lot of laughs.  If “Doctor Strangelove” can find the humor in nuclear war, then surely there’s a little bit of laughter lurking in unmanned aviation, as well as some serious, heartfelt moments.

It’s little wonder White House National Security Advisor Chet Addington* said this was, “Pretty much the best novel ever.”**

* Absolutely, positively, not a real person
** He’s been known to be wrong about stuff

“My Name is Nelson” is a mix of sci-fi, thriller and adventure, all mixed into one.

Nelson Troutman is a brilliant scientist. Yet, being bullied as a child, and now being considered “different” by everyone in his life, has sent him over the edge. Determined to get some payback, he leaves his job and sets up shop in his favorite strip club. There, he works on his master plan to create the ultimate weapon of mass destruction, all the while enjoying the company of Tiffany Golden, his almost-sort-of girlfriend.

Nelson is determined to get his revenge on all the bullies in the world, and does so in a brilliant clash of genres that leaves the reader at the edge of their seat. Despite Nelson’s tendencies for vengeance, he is an intriguing character that leaves a lasting impression on the reader.

Fast-paced and suspenseful, “My Name is Nelson” reads like an action movie.
