Folks, Alan Russell is a treasure!

This is a story of mayhem, intrigue, sex, high-speed suspense, and plain old-fashioned fun. Alan Russell has a way with the turn of phrase and plot that keeps you amused, guessing, and waiting for the next morsel of wit or intrigue. He is a wonder and a man whose work is to be savored like a bite or French gourmet or a taste of exquisite wine. Truly a wonder and despite my own literary efforts, I remain envious.Bravo! This is his best and they're all terrific. Buy this book.

Great read! I have never read anything by Alan Russell before. I enjoyed it so much that I will read all his previous mysteries

Another Winner!

It's hard to say if there is a "typical" Alan Russell novel. He's given us whodunits, funny mysteries, psychological thrillers, and now suspense.To date, my favorite Russell novel was the hilarious Hotel Detective but this book is equally enjoyable but in a very different way. It's gripping and suspenseful and the kind of book you want to finish in one sitting.Exposure gives us a very unusual hero, a paparazzo. It was fun learning about the tricks of the trade, and seeing the world through Graham Wells's eyes. I never thought I'd find myself sympathizing or empathizing with a character like this--but Russell fleshes out a very real human being who is both likeable not so likeable.What I really liked was the triad of villians. Also, there was a lot of fascinating information about German dueling fraternities. This book has snappy dialog, great action, and characters with legs and baggage. You don't want to miss this read.

High Octane Thriller

Russell's EXPOSURE is a roller-coaster ride from Hollywood, to Rio, to Paris, and back. His paparazzo Graham Wells is a great anti-hero. The book is both literary and high octane, and it works for me on all fronts.

Russell on a Roll

Having read all of Alan Russell's novels, with each new one I find myself more impressed with his range. In EXPOSURE, he takes on the Russian mobsters, White House insiders and the CIA, movie stars and the paparazzi that hound them. He carries us to Rio, Paris, rural Spain, Bosnia, New York, Los Angeles and back country Ojai, and makes all those places come alive. Graham, the paparazzo, is a complex fellow who very gradually wins our sympathy, which makes the first half of the book less compelling than the last half, when the snowballing action and the evil closing in on the characters we've begun to hurt with and pull for takes us on a wild thrill ride.Lanie, the movie star Graham can't quite decide whether to exploit or fall for, is a charming and credibly human study in the rewards and snares of celebrity.EXPOSURE is Russell's most ambitious story, and it succeeds remarkably well.
