"The beheadings are almost identical..." So begins National Book Award finalist and Omaha native Richard Dooling's new novel, Brainstorm, is a rip-roaring legal thriller and social satire that makes John Grisham look like a talented four-year-old!
Time calls it "brilliant."
The New York Times says it "rollicks along as cleverly and boisterously as a Rabelaisian farce."
The St Louis Post Dispatch describes it as "whacky, offbeat, zany."
And The San Jose Mercury News says it's "wake-up-your-spouse-to read-passages-aloud funny."
Read Chapter 1 and see for yourself!
