THE PITCH

This story is great for a short read. I liked this book because of the quick turns of the plot of what you think is going to happen. Most people would like this book if they like the suspense that the author puts on the reader. Amazingly, this fantastic book creates a whole different world around you with the best possible imagery that you can imagine. As the front of the book said "Believe the Possible" , every thing is possible in the future, present, or past...
