It's rare that I read scifi, but it was The Best Seller's particular blend of genre -- scifi meets thriller, meets conspiracy theory -- combined with historical elements that intrigued me. The Best Seller by Dina Rae introduces the reader to a huge conspiracy/cover-up. The author did a good job of making the story seem real and believable, which I think is key for this kind of story. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading, but I became invested in the plot quickly. With alternating chapters between the present and past (what happened during Hitler's reign with the Nazi's) readers learn that the US government allowed Hitler's doctors to conduct experiments and hid this from everyone. These experiments involved aliens. But these weren't docile aliens. Instead, they were vicious killers.
Present day in the novel introduces us to a young female, author--Maya--of a scifi fantasy. She goes to an event in the hopes of snagging an agent or publisher. Of course, she gets lucky and finds what she went for, including meeting her favorite author, but he goes all whacko when he sees the necklace she had on that her mother gave her because it's linked to the aliens.
Overall, the pace was good and the premise for the story very unique. This is a worthy read and an interesting book.
