“Tim Green is a master.”–Nelson DeMille

Jake Carlson, a correspondent for the TV news show American Outrage, inhabits a world of sensational trials and crazed celebrities. One of the nation’s top television journalists, he’s used to dragging himself through the dirt to get to the truth. When his adopted son, Sam, asks him to use his muckraking talents to find his birth mother, Jake is stunned by the ugly secrets he unearths: an international crime syndicate, a horrifying child trafficking ring, and a corrupt politician, the patriarch of an old New York financial dynasty.

Initially galvanized by a career-making exclusive, Jake—and his son—are soon the victims of brutal violence and the targets of Jake’s fellow reporters, who dog them for their story. Concerned for the survival of his family, Jake realizes some sins of the past should never be uncovered.

Filled with an insider’s knowledge of tabloid news and the experience of an adopted son seeking his biological parents, American Outrage proves to be Tim Green’s best, most personal thriller yet.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl | 6/2/2012

    " Checked out from the Gates Library. Yup! Another good one from Tim Green! He expanded a bit this time; no lawyers. This one is about adoption, Albanians and the world of TV media. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 4/10/2012

    " Fairly good book about a TV interviewer helping his adopted son look for his biological mother. Best part was the juxtaposition of the brainless topics of the interviews (totally typical of current TV interviews) with the strong emotions of the son in hoping to find his mother. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 3/13/2012

    " I am pretty sure not all searches for ones birth mother is as crazy as this. Other wise, I don't think to many would look. Anyway this story was not to bad. It was worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara Rosenthal | 2/21/2012

    " I finished it because I wanted to know what happened; I guess that's some kind of recommendation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe O'c | 2/2/2012

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elizabeth | 1/5/2012

    " Some of the early scenes were just too unapologetically trashy for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristal Cooper | 11/8/2011

    " This one didn't grab me until the halfway point, then it lost me and got me and lost me again. No idea why. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bob Tomaszewski | 4/24/2011

    " Tried to listen to the audiobook, but gave up 1/2 way through disc 3. Don't know if it was the narrator or what, but it just didn't flow. Better stuff on smashwords. "

    " This was a good read except I felt it to be a little contrived. Good but not great. "

    " I have read a lot of books and this one had a pretty creative plot...one I have never run across before. It it well written although I was surprised by the number of swear words.
    If you are offended by swear words, don't read it. They are numerous. "
