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 Final Judgment by Richard North Patterson

This is a book about self redemption.   A multi

generational look at a dysfunctional family who becomes embroiled in a murder is it's focus.

Caroline Masters, the main, protagonist is self contained, self created and self absorbed.   She has taken pain and glorified it into a personality builder.  Her estrangement from her family helps her to reinforce her aloofness.  

The author forces Caroline to face her fears and her family when her niece is arrested.   The family is portrayed in painstaking detail.   The plot is intricate without being confusing.   The author does a superior job at keeping key facts within reach but just out of sight.

This is an enjoyable mystery with personal redemption and developing self awareness as part of the mix. 

I enjoyed the book and 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.
