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.

The Albuquerque Turkey by John Vorhaus

An insider’s look at the world of the grifter, a peek into the mind of a con artist who struggle with his own identity in a convoluted and intricate plot of chicanery is the essence of this book.

Mr. Vorhaus does an excellent job at portraying con artists at work.   He delves into their motivation and desires.   He identifies grifters as living a life style not so much for the money but for the thrill of the scam.   Vorhaus used a lot of terminology that is specific to con artists but he deftly defined them so there was no confusion in regards to terminology.  

However the plot was astoundingly circuitous.   That isn’t to say it wasn’t entertaining but you were never quite sure what was going to happen next.   I like that.  I hate predictability in books, what fun is it to figure out the murder in the first 50 pages?  Amusingly Radar (the main protagonist) is in the same situation as the reader in trying to figure out what is going on.   This is difficult to quantify, I guess mystery or maybe action adventure, regardless of the label it was a quality reading experience.  

I enjoyed the book and I recommend the book.
