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.

Without Sin by David McCabe

This is a tale of forbidden love, illegal immigration, drug trafficking and pedophilia.   This book pulls back the tattered cover of indifference to reveal the suffering of illegal immigrants.  

The book read like the diary of a Border Patrol Agent, Garrett Harrison.   Garrett, a Seal in his prior career, ends up guarding our Southern Border.  He develops a Romeo and Juliette relationship that develops into a full blown obsession.  His buddies and he see the depraved behavior of the coyotes (illegal immigrant guides) and drug traffickers.  

The author leads you to believe that his novel is based on observations of actual events.  A big part of the theme of the book is the irresistible lure of a better life in the “north”. This desire for a better life drives the poor of those south of our border to take dramatic risks to cross the border.   There are a lot of sociological implications to this book.  One of the problems in addressing the issue of prostitution among migrant workers is the differing mores of other cultures.   The book alternates by reminiscing by Garrett to the actual action of events.   The despicable behavior of many of the characters and even the questionable behavior by some of the protagonists did not make this an easy read.  I recommend reading the author’s afterword as well to get an idea of his motivation. 

I recommend this 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.
