Required Reading

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Books I have authored.

Many times I receive books for FREE to give them an honest review. I do not get paid to give a good or bad review. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as advertising for the book spotlighted. Regardless of where or how I got a book, my review will be as honest as I can make it.

The Cat Dancers by P.T. Deutermann

Sometimes book titles can convey a sense of what to expect in the book.  In this case, the author’s name provides much more than the book title.   I have come to expect complex, detailed thrillers form Mr. Deutermann and this book does not disappoint me.   A straight arrow cop is confronted with circumstances that cast aspirations on the ethical behavior of some of his comrades in Blue.   The ensuing conflict provides excellent entertainment as Cam, Frick and Frack face myriad dangers.

I have all four books in this series and will be enlightening my readers with my reactions, sweaty palms and all.   Deutermann has the uncanny ability to place you solidly in the soggy frozen shoes of his main protagonist.   In fact, I think I still get a whiff of wet dog as I write this recommendation.

Circumstances force Cam to evaluate his own definition of “justice” when faced with behavior he simply can’t condone.   The love and trust imbued by Deutermann in the relationship between Cam, Frick and Frank is completely palatable.   Cam is not some cardboard hero with no thoughts for personal safety and collateral damage.  His character is as believable as it is enjoyable.

The book is populated by believable and colorful characters.  I think one of Deutermann’s strengths is his ability to convince you of the reality of his thoughts.

I highly recommend it.

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
