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.

Tiger’s Claw by Dale Brown

Dale Brown plucks his plots out of newspaper headlines.   This thriller postulates China as our new deadly foe.   Obviously that is not much of a fictional stretch.  

One of the subtleties of Brown’s books is the need to read between the lines.   The book points out that with the intertwined nature of the global economy it would be difficult for any conflict to escalate to war. 

Even noting that, Brown clearly details how minor events can snowball into making conflict nearly inevitable.   I haven’t read any Dale Brown lately and I found this book a bit more formulistic than I recall.   It could have been one I read several years ago with the names of the players being changed. 

I do enjoy the reoccurring characters as that provides a familiarity to the story that is quite pleasant.   The nature of the plot does not provide a lot of warm and fuzzy feelings but more of a sense of trepidation.   The specific details sometimes get overwhelming but overall and entertaining read.

I recommend the book.

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