Praise for Goldhammer

A delightful novel, hilarious and inventive. A wonderfully humorous blend of James Bond and Don Quixote.  — Kirkus Reviews

"Goldhammer is highly recommended reading for audiences who enjoy the comedy of The Kingsman, the pathos of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Jason Bourne-style action, all mixed together in a rollicking cocktail. Shaken. Not stirred." — Midwest Book Review

Goldhammer has all the heart-stopping action and biting wit of the first two novels, but at its core, this one is all heart. As Flynn’s quixotic ambitions escalate, so does our bond with him and the compelling characters he pulls into his delusions. I love the layers of LA history in this sparkling, hilarious novel, which delivers both Hollywood royalty and a thoroughly modern villain. Bonkers in the best possible way.” —Wendall Thomas, Anthony, Lefty, and Macavity nominated author of the Cyd Redondo Mysteries

“A fast-paced quixotic thriller that would make Miguel de Cervantes and Ian Fleming proud. The third James Flynn novel is a powerful cocktail of suspense, adrenaline and a whole lot of laughs. Orkin has the remarkable ability to keep the reader straddled between a genuine spy thriller and an off-the-wall comedy” —Joe Barret, Award-winning author of Managed Care

“Orkin writes the Flynn series with such panache that I started to believe the hero actually works for Her Majesty’s Secret Service and that all the other characters are crazy. The mental hospital as a cover story is brilliant and Flynn’s adventures of derring-do go a long way to pull you in and win you over. The Goldhammer escapade only serves to cement the series’ place in the hearts of fans.” —Bill Fitzhugh, Award-winning author of Pest Control and A Perfect Harvest

“A riotous comic novel that’s also a legit page turner. A deftly plotted, swiftly paced thriller.” —R. Lee Procter, Author of The Million Dollar Sticky Note and Sugarball

"One of those books that has you laughing and turning pages well into the night.” —Len Boswell, Bestselling author of The Simon Grave Mysteries

"A James Bond parody that delivers plenty of laugh-out-loud moments, pulse-pounding action scenes and biting social commentary."
