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 Accomplice by Charles Robbins

The seedy side of politics is featured in this book. Hmm, one wonders if there is any side that isn’t seedy.  This book provides an inside look at how a campaign for President is orchestrated.   As quoted by Tom Daschle (former Senate majority leader) on the book cover, “A deft, spot-on novel that captures the underbelly where ambition and love collide with loyalty and conscience.”

Henry Hatten is well portrayed as an idealistic politico who finds his basic ethics imperiled by his work.   As the communication director for an ambitious Senator, Hatten soon discovers that things aren’t always what they seem.  

I couldn’t decide if the Senator running for President was supposed to be any particular ambitious driven presidential aspirant.  Cynically and sadly, they all seem to have major feet of clay.

This book was hard to read on some levels as it smacks far too much of reality.  The characters were not named but have many features found in well known national “characters”. 

I 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.
