Any Hope For Gomez?

Is there any hope for Gomez!?  According to the title of Graham Parke's book No Hope For Gomez, apparently not!  If you read my last post (which you better have) you will know Gomez is on my Wish List!  Parke's is an author I recently discovered on Goodreads.  The book title quickly caught my eye & has been on my Wish List ever since!  It's getting great reviews & sounds like an uproarious read!  It's probably safe to say he's not, by all means, your run of the mill author!  Here's a blurb about No Hope For Gomez which you can also read on Parke's website!

It's the age-old tale:

   Boy meets girl.
   Boy stalks girl.
   Girl already has a stalker.
   Boy becomes her stalker-stalker.

We've seen it all before, many times, but this time it's different. If only slightly. 

    When Gomez Porter becomes a test subject in an experimental drug trial, he is asked to keep track of any strange experiences through a blog. What Gomez isn't ready for, is so many of his experiences suddenly seeming strange; the antiques dealer trying to buy his old tax papers, the phone-sex salesman who hounds him day and night, the super sexy research assistant who falls for him but is unable to express herself in terms outside the realm of science. 

   But when one of the trial participants turns up dead and another goes missing, Gomez begins to fear for his life. No longer sure who he can trust and which of his experiences are real and which merely drug induced delusions, he decides it's time to go underground and work out a devious plan. 

   Now, years later, his blogs have been recovered from a defunct server. For the first time we can find out firsthand what happened to Gomez as he takes us on a wild ride of discovery. 

    Oh yeah, and there's also a nurse with big boobs!

Oh, & did I mention he's doing a giveaway for a copy of this book on his website!?  I've entered & am crossing my fingers & toes to win a copy!  Have you!?
