The Actor?

​​I read The Actor ? and it was a swell read.
Harold Prince—Broadway Producer/Director


I thought it to be very good—excellent writing and a compelling, unpredictable plot set against an intriguing background. The story moves forward and you can't help but get sucked into Welling’s strong narrative. Almost flawless editing and really enjoyed the acting/Broadway element as well. The ending is one that will make you want to read more soon! Recommend for fans of espionage/thrillers. (5 stars)

There is much to be said about a novel that reads well. I've mentioned this before in other reviews I’ve written, but a book that keeps you reading long after you plan on putting it down ranks high for me. Not only is it entertaining, but you look forward to getting back into the book each and every time you pick it up, if you have the self-control to ever put it down. That is what reading this book The Actor? by Lee Welling has done for me. Typical of many spy &political thrillers I’ve read, The Actor? has much in the way of grittiness and high-stakes risky political and personal maneuverings, yet it remains inventive. With twists and turns, you won't know who… or what… to believe. The plot moved quickly and even though some traditional thriller archetypes show up, it is not in the usual way, which is refreshing. There is lots of action and unpredictable twists and turns throughout. An interesting blend of real life events and people, and creative fictional storyline. A very strong effort by Lee Welling and I will be looking forward to reading more from him in the future. Recommended for fans of spy/thrillers/suspense. (4-5 stars)
