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 Human Disguise by James O’Neal

 This is a cop book set in a near, possible future.  Tom Wilner is a cop trying to maintain order in a dystopian future south Florida.   He is ex-military facing bio-engineered diseases and possible aliens.   His priorities change dramatically when his family is threatened.

The near future aspect is frightening due to it’s possible probability based on current events.   Syria’s domination of the current international news scene makes this story even more frightening. 

There is a not so subtler finger pointed at human greed and prejudice.   There author draws parallels and I think is trying to prod the reader into pondering the behavior of our society.  

Wilner is an example of the best of us.  His passion, tenacity and foibles make him a believable character.   The Simolits and the Hallecks demonstrate the differing directions that evolving species can choose.

The book stands well alone but most definitely sets up sequels.   The approaching alien space ship may move the series from a near future cop story to a more main stream scifi. 

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.
