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.

Blood Money by Doug Richardson

I have no idea if the movie the Magnificent Seven had a book but it if did, then this book had more blood than that movie.  Blood Money could be called Blood Fest.  This is a rampaging nightmare of psychoses or PTSD.  A gore depiction rather than a mystery may be an apt description. 

Sadly, I liked the book anyway.  The characters were not particularly likeable and the plot was subservient to the action.   Greg Beem was the main villain but in this book, villainy lacked clear definition.   No stone was unturned to discover the slime underneath.  Gonzo a female LAPD officer was the highlight and her character was never richly defined.  Lucky Dey was a seething muck of revenge and guilt who differed from Beem merely in a matter of degree. 

Law enforcement ranging from local cops, sheriffs and Federales are besmirched with the brush of infidelity to their oaths and their morals.  This author appears to distain everyone equally. 

If you like non-stop action filled with bullets, bodies and perfidy, this is the book for you.  It is intellectually uninspiring but it powers through your dismay with major infusions of testosterone fueled action.  

Web Site:

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