Commercial Break is Mad Men Meets The Producers!
"...the funniest and most entertaining book the reviewer has read in years."
- Alvah's Books
What people are saying about Commercial Break...
"...has to be read to be believed. And Keith Harmeyer pulls it off without a hitch. This guy can write comedy. In fact, Commercial Break should be a movie. It’s got all he necessary ingredients for a blockbuster."
"Page turner" is such a cliché, but it's absolutely an appropriate description in this case."
"A funny, sardonic romp through the wilds of the advertising world. I couldn't put it down..."
"The characters were diverse, interesting and well developed."
"...an entertaining and fastpaced read... Very enjoyable. It would make a great movie."
Adam Glassman is looking for a way out.
Whatever passion Adam once felt for the advertising business is long gone. Weary of the hackneyed creative work and the abusive, egomaniacal clients, Adam is jaded, disillusioned and decidedly uninspired. And his career isn't the only thing floundering; his marriage is failing, as well.
Unlike Adam,his long-time partner, Carlo Fiore, still loves the excitement and glamour of the ad game, and is delighted when two of the agency's clients simultaneously decide to run commercials on the Super Bowl. Carlo sees it as a huge break, just the kind of thing to help catapult them into the big leagues.
But the unexpected opportunity inspires a very different notion in Adam's mind, a "Big Idea" that will not only allow him to settle scores with some of his most detestable clients, but also provide the new life he's been hoping for-albeit a life outside the law.
The two partners implement an elaborate scheme; but a string of unforeseen obstacles makes the plan even more challenging than they imagined. There's Harry Steck, an unsavory private investigator, hired by a disgruntled former employee to dig up dirt on Adam and Carlo…with life-threatening consequences. And Samantha Winningham, the sexy young art director whose affair with Adam could cause the whole plan to fall apart, and land Adam and Carlo behind bars.
Eventually, the pieces are in place. All that's left on Super Bowl Sunday are a bunch of eager clients, two very nervous would-be con men, and one burning question: will they get away with it?
Commercial Break is Mad Men meets The Producers - unpredictable, fast-paced, and at times laugh-out-loud hilarious, with the kind of offbeat storyline and rich characters enjoyed by readers of Carl Hiaasen and Elmore Leonard.
