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.

Targets of Deception by Jeffrey S. Stephens

Jordon Sandor formerly of the CIA (see Target of Opportunity) finds himself facing a rogue agent who has gone to the dark side.   Traiman, once a mentor, is now a deadly enemy working closely with Islamic terrorists.

Sandor, covered by either Teflon or Kevlar, seems to avoid personal mayhem at all turns.   Seems like everyone wants a shot at Sandor and his sarcastic witticism earn him few friends.

I didn’t find Sandor as likeable in this book but that may be due to his cynicism level being through the roof.   He loses a lot of colleagues in his travels. 

I felt there was a little more philosophic bent to this book than the last.  Patriotism is contrasted against the profit motive and self interest.  Stephens clearly points out the need to look at the benefits for all as opposed to self interest.  This in no way detracts from the action.

I 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.
