Oh wow. And reading the description, it sounds like he's exactly describing his experience with Survivor. He failed the first "39 day mission" and was offered a huge check to come back for a second one. He asked for help from his friend the "former Israeli Secret Service member" (aka Boston Rob), to endure his second mission of betrayal and turncoats.
My favorite part is the reviews. One person says:
"I haven't read a book like this in years and all I could hear when I read it was the narrator from "Casablanca" in my head! My favorite line? "his blood stained tongue stuck out too, like a 'take a number' meat market pull tab." Brilliant!!!!!"
