I'm writing a novel about a young aspiring Australian/Italian novelist. He has the technique, but not the ideas! He hates Matthew Reilly books with a passion and is determined to thwart his next book tour. After convincing his 2 friends to travel with him along the East coast of Australia to mess Matthew Reilly's new book tour, they set out on a road trip as Dave (main character) reads aloud all the over-the-top moments of Mr. Reilly's characters. Dave hates how unrealistic the action is, but along the way he coincidentally gets into the same over-the-top situations as he gets in trouble with police, mall security and a bunch of other situations. I'm not giving away more than that, but it's enough for you all to understand the following question: I don't really 'dig' his books. I've tried. I also have a career to worry about (I'm a professional music producer), so I don't have the time. I ask if anyone can give me a list of over-the-top scenes from character Shane Schofield? Book/Page references would be amazing, but I'm happy to accept any help I can get. PS: I remember one such scene where Schofield is punching-on with an Arab on the front of a coal truck which is speeding out of an Alkeida tunnel (see why I didn't read on?). Schofield grabs the Arab tightly and jumps with him off the front of the truck, but of course Schofield grabbed at the bumper in the next chapter, climbing underneath the truck and then systematically taking out all the terrorists onboard with his MAGlight from the back of the carriage to the driver. All this while wearing sunglasses. These are the kinds of events I'm looking for. Jumping behind a giant half-tonn oak table to avoid an explosion which pushes the table halfway out the 12 storey window. The character is hanging on the edge overlooking the people below who walk like tiny ants. This person might just shoot in one direction to swing in the other. I can think of this stuff myself (it's not hard), but I'd like REAL references from Matthew Rielly. I'd like this done right and I don't want to offend Matthew Reilly (sure I said I don't like his style, but respect is respect and I don't want to cheapen my concept). Please help.
