Publisher's Summary

It’s not easy living in someone else’s world. But that’s the story of Mike de Wolf’s life...literally. 

The whole thing started at his friend Horace’s Greenwich Village apartment. Horace is a writer and he’s decided to model one of his villains after Mike. Sounds crazy...until Mike reaches to turn on a light and gets the shock of his life. 

Knocked unconscious, Mike wakes up to find himself tossing in a violent ocean surf and getting slammed against the rocks. That wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for the bullets flying over his head, followed by the swordfight, certain to end in death...if not for the wild, beautiful woman on horseback who comes to his rescue.   

This isn’t the West Village anymore. Apparently it’s the West Indies, some 300 years ago, and Mike de Wolf is now Miguel Saint Raoul de Lobo, pursued across the Spanish Main by pirates, Englishman, and worse. 

He doesn’t know how he got here or why, but he does know he has to get out fast. Two problems: first off, the bad guys in Horace’s stories never get out alive, and second, Mike’s not all that sure he wants to leave after all. Seems he’s fallen for that wild woman on horseback....

What’s a guy to do? 

The answer’s written in the sky - in a wildly original, wickedly amusing novel in which, if you’re not careful, you might just find yourself getting lost. 

“An adventure story written in the great style adventures should be written in.” (Clive Cussler)

Really unexpected!

It started like a fun story... just a fun story. And then, well, I didn’t expect the plot to go that direction and it was AMAZING.
The performance was great, too.
Starting the next audio book by L. Ron Hubbard in a moment. :)

Could have been stunning

Narrator was brilliant except for when it came to the heroine. He could have been more consistent with accents, too. The story? Well, Hubbard was racist and sexist and that is apparent, and I knew that going in. Still was a bit jarring at times.

"God in a dirty bathrobe ".Great story.

I read this fiction story in order to better understand L Ron Hubbard's mind. If L Ron Hubbard truely wrote this then the story is both disturbing and pleasantly enjoyable. This book definitely gives insight into the mind of the person who created the Church of Scientology.

You have a main character controlled by the writings of a master mind who came into possession of a magical typewriter. And analougously to a memeber of Scientology. You have a cult member who came under the spell of LRH and his cult writings.

"Scientology is a joke. The founder of scientology L R H was a narcistic joke and the org is kept alive by people to stupid to know they are nothing more then cult victims. Happy Birthday you gigantic Joke." If I was going to give a birthday wish to the church of scientology this would be the birthday wish I would give. This book helped me understand L Ron Hubbard and I strongly suggest it as a fictional read because the reality of scientology plays out in the plot of the book.
