See Glass by Ido Graf

Sea Glass - My best fiction books 2020

The book See Glass by Ido Graf, is a fast-paced action thriller which has been described as having a style like Tom Clancy.  I agree with that but I would also say, Frederick Forsyth as both authors researched their novels in great detail,  as does Graf. They all intertwine fact with fiction giving novels of profound insight and realism.

Sea Glass is a contemporary thriller set in various exotic locations such as North America, Europe and the Middle East.

The story begins in a small Andalusian fishing village when a redundant reporter meets a former Foreign Legionnaire by chance. The story he is told appears to be fictitious, but as the journalist begins to dig deeper  …the boundaries between fact and fiction begin to blur and the danger increases.

A top story for men and women that encompasses secrets, spies, hidden Nazi gold and politicians across the northern hemisphere.

The new book See Glass by thriller, adventure, spy story writer Ido Graf has all the twists of a Nelson DeMille bestseller novel. DeMille’s Plum Island is one of my best fiction books of all time. See Glass is one of my picks for best fiction books of 2020.

Another great fiction book writer I have read recently is Ben MacIntyre. His book The Spy and the Traitor is a riveting book and another of my top fiction books to read. It’s the sort of book that would make a great contemporary film or TV series.

Many new streaming services have appeared in recent years. Film production companies  such as Metro Goldwyn Mayer and Paramount Pictures have been joined by others such as HBO, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Studios, Sky TV, Crackle and Disney+.

See Glass by Ido Graf is available now either as a paperback or as a Kindle eBook on Amazon. I understand that this novel will also be available on Audible as an audiobook in the coming two months.

The book foretold subversion of the US democracy by a President in league with right-wing groups. See the video of See Glass on Vimeo.

Audiobook

Audiobooks are also sometimes called talking books. They are very popular now, particularly with the advent of companies like Audible. Many people like to multi-task now. They exercise, commute, do the gardening or housework and cook while listening to Audiobooks. They even fall asleep to the sound of the spoken word at night-time.

The word Audiobook refers to a book being read out loud often by an actor which is then taped. There are two main types of talking book, either abridged, where the text is edited down to a shorter version or unabridged, where the whole book is on the Audiobook.

Audiobooks have been around in different forms for nearly a century and have proved immensely popular with schools and public libraries, and they remain so.

About forty years ago hardback and paperback publishers began to realise that there was a growing market for the Audiobook and they began to sell these more widely.

Two years ago nearly 50,000 audio-books were recorded in the United States of America. The growth in that time was 20 per cent higher over the previous.

ऑडियोबुक को कभी-कभी टॉकिंग बुक्स भी कहा जाता है। वे अब बहुत लोकप्रिय हैं, खासकर ऑडिबल जैसी कंपनियों के आगमन के साथ। बहुत से लोग अब मल्टी-टास्क करना पसंद करते हैं। वे व्यायाम करते हैं, हंगामा करते हैं, बागवानी या गृहकार्य करते हैं और ऑडियोबुक की सुनते हुए खाना बनाते हैं। यहां तक ​​कि वे रात के समय बोले गए शब्द की आवाज पर सो जाते हैं।
ऑडियोबुक शब्द एक पुस्तक को संदर्भित करता है जिसे अक्सर एक अभिनेता द्वारा जोर से पढ़ा जाता है जिसे तब टेप किया जाता है। दो मुख्य प्रकार की टॉकिंग बुक हैं, या तो संक्षिप्त है, जहां टेक्स्ट को छोटे संस्करण में संपादित किया जाता है या अनब्रिड किया जाता है, जहां पूरी पुस्तक ऑडियोबुक पर होती है।
ऑडियोबुक लगभग एक सदी से अलग-अलग रूपों में हैं और स्कूलों और सार्वजनिक पुस्तकालयों के साथ काफी लोकप्रिय साबित हुए हैं और वे ऐसे ही बने हुए हैं।
लगभग चालीस साल पहले हार्डबैक और पेपरबैक प्रकाशकों को यह महसूस करना शुरू हुआ कि ऑडियोबुक के लिए एक बढ़ता हुआ बाजार था और उन्होंने इसे और अधिक व्यापक रूप से बेचना शुरू किया।
दो साल पहले संयुक्त राज्य अमेरिका में लगभग 50,000 ऑडियो-पुस्तकें रिकॉर्ड की गईं थीं। उस समय की वृद्धि पहले की तुलना में 20 प्रतिशत अधिक थी।

The Passenger by Ulrich Alexander Boschwitz

The Passenger by Ulrich Alexander Boschwitz has just been released.

A long lost novel written in 1938 about Nazi Germany and the treatment of Jews has become a best-seller. The Passenger by Ulrich Alexander Boschwitz is a must read for those wishing to appreciate the horrors through a contemporary viewpoint.


The novel follows the journey of Otto Silbermann who must flee with his family from the Nazis following the increasing violence surrounding Kristallnacht.


The book, The Passenger charts his hurried escape taking train after train criss-crossing Germany in order to find a border he can cross to freedom.


This classic novel by Boschwitz gives a great sense of the tremendous fear of discovery which so many of those people suffered and the consequences that would follow if the Nazis discovered them.

Why not pick up a book from one of these great writers and spend a few hours enjoying being with yourself and the author.

Win by Harlan Coben

Win by Harlan Coben

Harlan Coben is a world class thriller writer whos novels have been adapted for the the silver screen by Netflix Studios.

This book features his new hero Windsor Horne Lockwood III, or Win as he is known.

An heiress, Patricia Lockwood, was kidnapped two decades previously. She escaped along with those who captured her. .The proceeds of the robbery went unfound.

Then a New York recluse murdered in his penthouse apartment. Items at the crime scene throw light on the Lockwood kidnapping and on another another FBI cold case. They implicate one man.

Windsor Horne Lockwood III or ‘Win’ has no idea how his suitcase and his family’s stolen Vermeer ended up in the dead man’s apartment. When the FBI tell him that the perpetrator who is still at large and who kidnapped his cousin may also be a terrorist his interest is ignited.

Other writers have said of Harlan Coben that he:

‘…is the modern master of the hook and twist’ Dan Brown

‘…never ever lets you down’ Lee Child

‘…is one of the world’s finest thriller writers’ Peter James

You can’t beat reviews like that from some of the other world best selling authors.

Harlan Coben is a superb writer and I look forward to every new fiction book he writes.

Find Them Dead by Peter James

Find Them Dead is the next in the Roy Grace detective series by Peter James.


Peter James is ban award winning detective thriler writer. His Roy Grace detective books are completely addictive and atmospheric.. While a Brighton gangster is being tried for conspiracy to murder there is a person in the courtroom who is watching the jurors carefully. The thugs compatriots are wondering which two jurors they will try to influence to throw the verdict. Roy Grace begins to investigate a murder which soon appears to have links to the gangsters trial, The stakes are high and danger is ever present. The cat and mouse plot is a real page turner.

Peter James is a top-notch thriller writer and is well worth a read.

Hush-Hush by Stuart Woods

Hush-Hush by Stuart Woods has been placed as number 3 on the New York Times bestseller list under combined Print & E-book Fiction. It was placed number 5 on The Washington Post Best Sellers Books USA Today.

Stuart Woods is an enormously prolific writer of fiction. Hush- Hush is a Stone Barrington novel.

Is this set to be the next Netflix series or Hollywood blockbuster film for 2021?

Netflix Originals – What is next?

Will See Glass, by the writer Ido Graf, be the next blockbuster film or Netflix Original for the coming year of 2021?

The movie and television industry has reinvigorated itself over the last few years with great films and diverse series coming out of Hollywood and Netflix Originals. It has been the saving of many of us during the pandemic. The great Hollywood studios such as Universal Pictures, MGM, Paramount Pictures, Walt Disney Pictures, Columbia Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures have been a life saver.

Who among us has not sat glued to the TV unable to pull ourselves away as we wait for a new Hollywood blockbuster release or the next instalment of a Netflix Original series …I have felt as if I am an addict – unable to drag myself from the screen even to pour another glass of wine. I cannot help it – some of these series are just so professionally written and engaging that I feel lost without them.

When I get though every episode of a series, I am often suffering withdrawal. Sometimes it even starts before I finish watching every episode which is available! I look down the diminishing list of episodes that I have left and feel a gut-wrenching sense of loss – what will I possibly do when the series is complete?

I begin to question myself! Could Netflix be playing a joke on their viewers – Surely, I don’t have to wait a month until the next series is released?   Have I misread the list of episodes? Maybe there are more that I didn’t notice? Yes that’s it!

I knew that I should have stopped at the last bottle of wine – my vision is going! It’s all been a horrible hallucination! Yes, it’s true – there is another series and more episodes available! Have I got time to run to the kitchen to grab another bottle of wine and some crisps before it starts – Oh and a saucepan too so I can go to the toilet while I’m sat on the sofa?

I make a dash for it!

But no, it’s not true! There is not another series yet! What a nightmare! So I start watching it again to stave off depression while I wait for the next series to be released.

I know! I think to myself – I will watch the whole series again on the TV from the start with my right eye which will help me to keep a grip. Then I can hold up my phone and scan with my left eye to search for another new series to get hooked on.

Then I realise that with two hands in use I cannot use my saucepan or drink my wine. Fortunately, these problems are less insurmountable than my issues with SLL, ‘Series Love Loss’.

I lean forward without taking either eye from the screens and grasp the lip of the bottle with my teeth. I slowly tilt my head back while keeping my balance and without either eye losing contact with the screens. Then a heartfelt memory of one of the greatest Hollywood films comes to mind – Apollo 13. My lips form a manic grin as I compare myself to those astronauts – they thought they were attempting the impossible with little measure for error! If they could see me now, then they would realise that they had it easy!

I am beginning to sweat now as things are becoming critical! I just must GO PEE! This is an absolute crisis! Unperturbed and unrelenting as the right eye is seeing a clever pot twist and the left eye has found something interesting – I shift my weight on the sofa and use the toes of both feet to grip the saucepan to pull it towards me – a task made more difficult from slippery food residue on the outside from a week ago when I last ate something.

Then things enter a critical stage – I am beginning to break down – the pressure is too great. Something must give!

Then just in the nick of time when the plot twist in my right eye is at its pinnacle – my body gives up. I cannot hold back the floodgates anymore. The sofa is soaking wet, but at least it is warm – I drop the saucepan and life just keeps on giving. I am reminded of Apollo 13 again – they went in their underwear – I am sure I read that somewhere years ago!

I will tell my girlfriend that when she gets home – she will understand! Then suddenly my left eye has found a new series with great reviews – it just gets better and better!

My body relaxes and I feel an uplifting rush like none I have ever felt before! Roll on happiness!

Netflix is based in Los Gatos, California and since it started with that iconic series House of Cards, it has not looked back.

The Editor and Publisher of Southwest Florida online wrote a very full review of the conspiracy novel, See Glass and said in his final comment, ‘I would imagine a screenwriter could polish See Glass off and make a very dandy film thriller.’

Will this clever political conspiracy thriller which is available on Amazon be the next Hollywood or Netflix Original hit of this year.

Time will tell!

Get your wine and saucepans ready!

Ed, Nat’s badminton opponent and employee of a media agency is a catalyst for the story and the dangers that ensue.

Agent Running in the Field, by John Le Carré was a great writer and a titan in the espionage genre. Well worth a read this Christmas holiday!

ジョン・ル・カレのスパイスリラーと彼の最後と25番目の小説、エージェント・ランニング・イン・ザ・フィールドは、本当のページめくりです。

ベテランの英国秘密情報部のエージェント、ナットは、彼がサービスに残っている時間がほとんどないと信じています。モスクワセンターからの脅威が大きくなるにつれて、彼は仕事を与えられます。ロンドン将軍の変電所である「TheHaven」のエージェント。若い女性、フローレンスを除いて、スタッフは最高の能力を持っていません。

この小説は、政治的および現代的な印象が強く、すべての人の好みに合うとは限りません。

ナットのバドミントンの対戦相手であり、メディアエージェンシーの従業員であるエドは、物語とそれに続く危険のきっかけとなります。

ジョン・ル・カレの「フィールドで走るエージェント」は、スパイのジャンルで偉大な作家であり巨人でした。このクリスマス休暇は一読の価値があります!

Der Spionagethriller von John Le Carré und sein letzter und fünfundzwanzigster Roman, Agent Running in the Field, sind ein echter Seitenwender.
