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.

City of The Dead by Daniel Blake

This is another complex mystery by Blake set in New Orleans with Hurricane Katrina as a back drop

Franco Patrese is back and in New Orleans.  We met Franco in Blake’s book Thou Shalt Kill.  Franco left Pittsburgh after the horrendous events in that book and joined the FBI.  

Black uses the color and characters of New Orleans as the perfect backdrop for a series of horrific killings.  Franco finds himself far more involved than just an investigator.  

The story has voodoo and hoodo, sex and violence, snakes and politicians (unless that is a given redundancy) with big business and Mexican drug lords.   You could hardly ask for more action and head scratching trying to put it all together.   Blake is a master at sensible complexity.

Daniel Blake did an excellent job with this book. 

I highly recommend the 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.
