Publisher's Summary

When tabloid writer Jude Johnstone uncovers the truth behind the disappearance of mega-lotto winner Howard Rosen, he hears the words, "You're hired." But for Jude, this could be one dangerous reality show.

First he must find Howard's son, then negotiate the purchase of a Caribbean island for them, and finally stage a coup against the corrupt governor of a neighboring island. Howard, of course, wants credit for all of it. Why? For the same reason he engineered his disappearance in the first place, the instant after picking up his check: to be famous for more than 15 minutes.

Will Jude write this story Howard's way and make him the hero? Or will romance detour him? What happens next is the stuff of Hollywood legend.

    Story
    "Bold and fun adventure!"

    Picking a veteran Hollywood screen and Star Wars voiceover actor for this was genius. The word "delicious" comes to mind. Tabori has the perfect vehicle here for his gifts at spontaneous character voices. A mega lotto winner twerp disappears, then hires a washed up travel writer to buy an island for him, his intention to aid the natives of a neighboring island in their fight against a corrupt governor. The writer will get a million bucks tax free, and the Powerball winner will get to be famous forever as a hero, with a hilarious To Do list. Or will they? This is an audio movie possessing wit, charm and intrigue in spades.

    "Fame Island"

    I have solved the tedium of long drives with audiobooks and J.L's books are just the ticket for a pleasant and safe trip.The whole idea of "to be famous for more than 15 minutes", is so timely in our high speed high tech world of communications and media. To what ends will we travel to seek our Fame?
