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.

Soft Target by Stephen Hunter

In the era of jihad the concept of soft targets is sobering.  People who wouldn’t recognize democracy if it bit them in the tush would love to enjoy our freedoms while they try and destroy them.  This book pits a retired marine sniper against a home grown nut case and some deluded Islamic terrorists.  

Ray Cruz is the protagonist in this book.   He represents the best of our service people, loathe to leave a job half done and patriotic to a fault.   He finds himself thrust into home grown terrorism and reacts as if he is still in the service.  I am aware that Stephen Hunter has many successful novels but I was a little surprised that he placed his protagonist in a situation that would have no doubt earned him stockade time if there was any reality check.   With that said, I really enjoyed the novel and the reaction of the SWAT and Cruz characters.   Home grown or not, terrorists deserve their fate as it is justly dished out in this fast paced, edge of the chair, roller coaster read.  

I highly 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.
