Recently, I had the pleasure of interviewing NoFakeNews founder and author, Dr. John Reizer about his recent novel, The Target List. Here’s what he had to say:
Gina: How does it feel to have written a pretty damn good novel?
John: I am happy with the way the story turned out. There are always aspects of a story that I think that I should have done a bit differently, but I think most writers have the same feelings regarding their books. This story is special to me because of the underlying message it attempts to convey to readers and listeners.
Gina: It seems to me from looking at all the reviews on Amazon and Audible that your story has been well received by most readers. Were you expecting such positive reviews and feedback?
John: Well you know, I didn’t know what to expect. Usually, my books receive very little in the way of reviews. When you’re an unknown author swimming in a sea of established authors, it’s hard to get people to read your work, let alone rate and review it. I think, initially , I believed there would be more negative reviews than positive ones. And not because of my writing abilities, but because the storyline is based on a very polarizing subject. Anytime you write something negative about traditional medicine or the pharmaceutical industrial complex, you’re inviting and opening yourself up to hostile reader reviews.
Gina: Have you received any bad or hostile reviews?
John: I haven’t really received too many negative reviews for The Target List. There have been a few 2 and 3 star ratings, but not everybody is going to fall in love with your story.
Gina: Do you like the way the audiobook turned out?
John: Oh yes! I think Allen Grunerud did such a great job with the book. The audiobook has been on and off of Amazon’s Top 100 list for Medical Thrillers. It’s been spending a lot of time on the list this past week. I am so happy with the way he produced the project. And his work has been positively reviewed on Audible. There have been lots of great reviews on that platform and that’s a direct result of Allen’s narration skills.
Gina: What’s next for this story?
John: I am collaborating with a screenwriter to hopefully turn the story into a low budget movie thriller. That’s the plan at least. I think you have to aim high and see how things shake out. But, honestly, I have a good feeling about The Target List moving forward. Regardless of what happens from this point, the rest is frosting on the cake for me. This story has already exceeded my original expectations.
Gina: Are you working on another story?
John: I have delayed beginning my next novel because I have been involved with the screenplay project. That’s going to take several months to complete so I want to wait until that’s wrapped up before concentrating on something new. But I am having fun with this book and I am still writing articles everyday for NoFakeNews.

I know we’ve been putting up a lot of content lately about my latest novel, The Target List. But you have to understand, this book is a big deal in my life and the lives of the people now collaborating on the project and working to promote it to the reading and listening public.
I have a half dozen promotional codes left for anyone that would like to listen to the audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review. Simply email me at email@example.com and let me know if you’re in the US or UK so I can send the proper codes. I only have 2 UK codes at the moment. I will have additional codes available in a few weeks.
The Target List is currently being prepared for a full length screenplay. We’re just in the outline stages, but I would be interested in readers’ and listeners’ opinions regarding what they think might make the story better in a full length movie. For example, should the main protagonist be a man or woman?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated as the actual writing of the screenplay will begin in November, 2019.

It’s been more than a few months since I have written anything for NoFakeNews. My schedule has been hectic, and I have been back and forth to Europe like a pingpong ball this year. But now I have some downtime until January and can catch my breath.
I haven’t had the chance to write anything about Dr. Reizer’s novel, The Target List. I read the paperback in July; it was fantastic. I told John at the time it was the best thing he’d written to date and I loved his Michael Morris books.
I just finished listening to the audiobook edition narrated by Allen Grunerud. It’s also fantastic.
Let me just say that this story and the concept of WAND are brilliant. The storyline is not only plausible, it’s probably happened more frequently than anyone could imagine.
I loved Clyde’s character. He’s a very complex individual, intellectually speaking, yet down to earth and ready to confront and defeat professional assassins. Donna is great too – she possess the perfect personality to keep Clyde on track and between the two of them, they’re the perfect team.
The Target List is entertainment and a window’s look inside the world of Big Pharma all wrapped up in a two hour listen.
What I liked best about the novel is the simplicity of the writing. Dr. Reizer keeps the story’s pace moving at a good clip and is able to accurately portray the state of criminal activity taking place in the pharmaceutical industry, and still create a very good medical thriller. Not an easy thing to pull off.
If you’re interested in listening to or reading a great story, get acquainted with John Reizer’s, The Target List.
Gina’s book rating:
By Dr. John Reizer
In my breakthrough novel, The Target List, I address a number of issues currently affecting healthcare consumers worldwide.
The story’s plot revolves around the creation of a fictional medical instrument called WAND (Wave-Altering-Nanoparticle-Disrupter).
WAND is the pharmaceutical industry’s worst nightmare; it cures cancer and other diseases with radio frequencies, not drugs.
In my fictitious storyline, the drug companies stand to lose everything they’ve worked so hard to develop; drugs are about to become obsolete and diseases completely eradicated.
The powers that be set out to destroy WAND as well as the brains that developed the technology by hiring professional assassins. The creators of WAND are placed on somebody’s target list.
If a noninvasive technology that could cure cancer and other diseases without drugs or surgery actually existed, would the powers that be let it see the light of day? In a word, no. In two words, absolutely not. In three words, no f%#@ing way. I think you get the point.
The profits associated with treating different diseases indefinitely are enormous. There are billions of dollars at stake in Big Pharma’s fake crusade to conquer cancer and other known maladies currently plaguing healthcare consumers.
If a scientist or group of scientists ever created a real WAND, you can bet with great confidence that those individuals would instantly be placed within the crosshairs of real assasins.
The Target List is a fictional story about things that have most likely already happened in real life. It’s my sincere hope that people will read or listen to the book and gain a better understanding of what is happening within organized medicine and through its handler, Big Pharma.
WAND is a revolutionary new medical tool that cures diseased tissues in human beings without the use of drugs or surgery. Ten years in design and production, the technology has a 95% success rate in curing most forms of cancer in animals and human beings.
The brainchild of 48-year-old Harvard Medical School graduate, Clyde Daniel, WAND (Wave-Altering-Nanoparticle-Disrupter) is going to move the profession of medicine out of the dark ages and into something that closely resembles science fiction. That is, unless the pharmaceutical industry, which stands to lose billions of dollars in lost drug revenues, can intervene with its hired assassins and destroy the technology and its team of creators before it ever has a chance to see the light of day.
The Target List is a medical science fiction thriller, a real pause-resister that will have listeners hooked from the first chapter through the very end of the book.

“This was great!”
“This has action from beginning to end. Short and fast and focused, it acknowledges one of the current beliefs that Big Pharma doesn’t want to cure anybody because it would hit their profits. The author’s writing style is different from Robin Cook, but if you like Robin Cook, you will also like this book.
I really liked the narrator. He does a good job differentiating different characters.
I was given this audiobook free in exchange for an honest review.”
Norma Miles – United Kingdom
“We Wand to get rid of cancer today”
“This very short medical thriller still manages to be an exciting action filled tale which also hints heavily about the current ongoing consultancy to keep people sick and dependent on the drugs that make a few pharmaceutical companies very wealthy. It is against their interests to bring health to a nation. Written consisely, more attention is paid to ideas than character but the main protagonists are nevertheless personable and endearing. Narration by Allen Grunerud is delivered with good intonation but in the slightly flattened tones of a news report, giving a greater authenticity to the story: a good choice. ”
Tiffani Policriti – USA
“Suspenseful book with a perfectly matched narration”
“This was a really good production. The sound quality of the narration was excellent. I thought the narrator did a nice presentation throughout the book.
The story content was also very interesting and quite suspenseful. I would recommend The Target List as a great audiobook to listen to.”
An Anonymous Reviewer – USA
A Fast Paced Medical Thriller
“I really enjoyed this book very much. It was extremely interesting and I couldn’t stop listening. The story was fascinating and I loved the suspenseful situations that Clyde and Donna constantly found themselves in.
The narrator was very good and his voice inflections with the different characters in the story really added to the performance.
I would recommend this audiobook to anyone looking for a good suspenseful listen.”
Tracey Allan – United Kingdom
“Good story and I like the way it refers to the big Pharmas and how they may be behind a lot of things (don’t want to say too much in case it spoils the story for others). Story flowed well and the narration was perfect for this type of story.”
Stephanie – USA
“Short medical thriller”
“Loved it. Focused on beliefs that Big Pharma does not want cures as it impacts profits. Action from beginning to end. Narrator was excellent and really warmed to the story. He does a good job of differentiating characters.
I was given this audiobook in exchange for honest review. Keeping this one in my library!!”
Mark – USA
This story is awesome. It is so realistic that it makes your heart race, anticipating what’s going to happen next.
H. Nathan – USA
What a ride, this book is action-packed, sad, and very suspenseful. This book will leave you on the edge of your seat and is hard to put down, once you start listening to it. Every chapter in this story is amazing and keeps me thinking about it. It is super interesting.
I found besides giving us a good scare he goes right on making me laugh out loud but then by the end I felt like crying. It drags you from one emotion to another. I can’t wait for the next one. If you are looking for a thrilling page-turning story and you enjoy medical suspense then this book is for you.
I wanted to give everybody an update on the status of my novel, The Target List.
Thanks to a lot of readers at this blog site, the story has gained popularity on the Amazon Kindle platform.
I am so thankful to the people who have taken the time to purchase and read the novel.
This novel represents an opportunity to enlighten new readers about the dangers imposed on healthcare consumers by the pharmaceutical industry.
Recently, The Target List made it onto one of Amazon’s top 100 bestseller lists under the category of Medical Thrillers. And while it wouldn’t be accurate to label the book a bonafide bestseller, it’s perfectly acceptable for me to report to readers that the story is performing well and has exceeded my personal expectations.
The story is also published as an audiobook on the Audible platform.
I am currently collaborating with a screenwriter in order to prepare the story as a screenplay that will hopefully allow the work to reach a much bigger audience in the future.
Thanks again for your support!
