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.

72 Virgins by Avi Perry

This is a novel that reads like current events or history.   The story of an Israel who infiltrates a terrorist cell is fraught with peril.   The story paints a dim picture of the ethics of the Intelligence community.

I found the story frightening.  The games played by the Intelligence community were dismaying at best.  The sad part is that it is easy to see why draconian methods are applied to terroristic situations.  The brutality of the terrorists is played in counterpoint to their total disregard for human life, both their own and their victims.  Our culture generally finds it impossible to understand a culture that lionizes suicide, particularly suicide that is so destructive to others.  For some reason I found the story stilted and I couldn't identify why I felt that way.   It didn't read easily but that may have been the topic.

The book was informative and painted a very vivid picture of fundamental fanatics.
