Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

High atop a Los Angeles skyscraper, an office Christmas party turns into a deadly cage-match between a lone New York City cop and a gang of international terrorists. Every action fan knows it could only be the explosive big-screen blockbuster Die Hard. But before Bruce Willis blew away audiences as unstoppable hero John McClane, author Roderick Thorp knocked out thriller readers with the bestseller that started it all.

About the Author

Roderick Thorp is the bestselling author of The Detective, which was made into a film starring Frank Sinatra. Mr. Thorp worked as a private detective for nine years and did extensive crime reporting including a twenty-one-part series on cocaine traffic in southern California, which was published in the Los Angeles Herald Examiner. His other titles include Rainbow Drive and Devlin.

Brian Grouhel, December 9, 2013 (view all comments by Brian Grouhel)
Nothing Lasts Forever doesn't sound much like Die Hard. But, one of my failings is reading the fine print in the credits after a favourite movie and discovering what the book was and who wrote it. Nothing Lasts Forever is the second tale about John Leland, a detective in a north eastern US city. In the second book John flies into Los Angeles to visit his daughter for Christmas and the story unfolds from there. It remarkably follows the story we know from the movie but with subtle differences. It's still Christmas in LA and still in a tall building but the little differences will make another interesting story which plays out in a very similar way to the movie but also has a very different ending. Well worth reading, as is The Detective.
