Book Review: The Golden Goose of Los Angeles by Travis Adam Irish Volume 1


Do you love Thrillers? Take a wild ride with: danger, intrigue, betrayal, and the dark exploration of self- jaw-dropping revelations, and intense characters.

This new, fast-paced story may be too much for some to handle, as it leaves many feeling: on edge, shocked, and haunted by the nature of humanity.

Rory Chambers is an extreme sports expert who helps people to partake in every adrenaline inducing experience that California has to offer. However, his life becomes complicated when it is discovered that, due to a special protein produced by his body, his blood can cure a variety of terminal illnesses, including deadly cancers, and pathogens such as HIV.

When the medical experts report their inability to create a vaccine artificially, Rory finds that there is no shortage of rich and powerful people who are desperate for a second chance… Desperate enough to carve it straight from his body.

Regardless of what his career in extreme sports has taught Rory about fear; nothing can prepare him for the unpredictable ride, and lascivious betrayals that are borne by the human psyche.

When his blood is valued at over $500,000 a pint, and so many dying people are looking for another chance; how will he keep the world from draining him of everything?

For a thrilling experience that is not to be missed, order a copy today!


I found the premise of this book intriguing. A man who has properties in his blood to cure AIDS and cancer. I found the science adequately enthraling but was irritated by the need of the author to describe fashion and what people are wearing superfluously at key points of the story. I didn’t particularly like Rory Chambers but found him interesting enough to keep reading. I found his appearance at the Oscars out of place but this is set in LA after all. This high octane thriller entertains but didn’t engage me scientifically, which would be appealing to most lay readers I suppose.

The book gets more gruesome as you read it and the cliffhanger is chilling.

I hope to catch the second and third parts of this thriller to see what becomes of Rory.
