WRITTEN OFF by E. J. Copperman
WRITTEN OFF ©2016 by E. J. Copperman stars a crime fiction writer, Rachel Goldman, whose protagonist jumps off the page into her life as a semi-official police presence. Naturally a huge leap of disbelief is required, but surprisingly realistic as amateur detective fiction goes—I mean if I wrote crime fiction and my hero came to life, I’d probably be thinking much of what the protagonist of this story does. Furthermore (don’tcha love sentences that start with "furthermore"), E. J. Copperman is a pseudonym of a charming writer. So one watches oneself watching the writer watching E. J. Copperman molding Rachel as she interacts with her detective who has come alive—the whole premise is nuts, right?
Yet, one’s interest is genuinely piqued. The story has some clever twists.
WRITTEN OFF is full of snappy remarks told with wit. Meanwhile, E.J. Copperman still has that warm, kissable quality, like a favourite teddy bear.
There are plenty of inside jokes. All members of the crime fiction community should read this book.
