High Praise for Ron Felber's New Thriller "A Man Of Indeterminate Value" Now Available at Barnes & Noble and Amazon

NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ--(Marketwired - July 08, 2013) - Ron Felber delivers a nail-biting tour de force featuring a world of corrupt corporations, perverted values, and a hero struggling for salvation. Acclaimed writer Ron Felber is once again captivating audiences with his riveting new novel, A Man of Indeterminate Value. Readers are singing his praise, just as they did when he released his last hit, Il Dottore, the true life story that became the basis for the FOX television series, "The Mob Doctor."

A Man of Indeterminate Value is the first book in a trilogy featuring anti-hero Jack Madson. Trapped in a hate-filled marriage, a job he despises, and the mountain of debt his wife has racked up, Madson has crafted an escape plan. He'll fake his own death -- simultaneously winning a large insurance payout for his family and paving the way for his getaway to Mexico. There, he'll create a new life with the proceeds he has been amassing from illegally selling intellectual property to criminal interests in China. But Madson's plan goes dangerously wrong. "Jack Madson is locked in the myth of the American Dream," Felber says. "Because he blindly follows the premise that money equates with happiness, every action he takes to free himself has the exact opposite effect of entangling him more deeply."

Here's the latest buzz surrounding A Man of Indeterminate Value:

"Gritty, fast-paced, and dynamic, the blend of dialogue, atmosphere and action will grip readers from page one. A Man of Indeterminate Value is a tautly plotted thriller by an outstanding newcomer to the crime fiction genre." -Patrick Robinson, New York Times bestselling author of Lone Survivor, soon to be a major motion picture

"Ron Felber has done it again! The author of the true story that inspired the Fox television series 'The Mob Doctor' has written a darkly brilliant new thriller that takes readers on a hold-your-breath rollercoaster ride they won't forget!" -Lindsay Sweeney, Editor, The Alternative Press

"A Man of Indeterminate Value sketches the moral depravity that festers amid high-stakes corporate power games. Jack Madson, an anti-hero for the 21st century, must navigate these treacherous shoals where dirty dealing and incredible violence can rip apart the weak and unwary. Above all, Jack Madson knows how to survive!" -Larry Light, executive vice-president, Mystery Writers of America

"Ron Felber's novel is a scathing condemnation of a style of business that obsesses over short term rewards and ignores long term destruction. Sadly Felber is simply holding up a mirror to the more despicable practices that have characterized recent Wall Street debacles. I highly recommend it!" -William Bentrim, Pick of the Literate

Felber "takes his reader into the violent, surreal, and sex-crazed underbelly of 21st century America, the "empire in decline... His tight writing is edgy and crisp."-Cheryl Malandrinos, The Book Connection

"Felber is back. This time with an action packed thriller trilogy! His writing is gritty, truthful, in your face, and makes you feel like you've just experienced something not many do!"-Melody Deshaies, For The Love of Books Virginia
