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.

Plaza by Shane M. Brown


An archaeological dig in Mexico leads to some fascinating circumstances.  A group of entomologists and archaeologists fall afoul of competing archaeological  
thieves. 

The setting in a Mexican jungle seems appropriate for the Indiana Jones type of thriller.   Complacent archaeologists discover that the real world has substantially more interest in their finds than they expected.   The story starts with a bang and continues rolling with gods, monsters, musclemen, thugs and innocents.

The mysterious gods are a surprising protagonist but nevertheless entertaining.   Tongue in cheek doesn't begin to describe it.   One set of competing thugs seems stereo-typically evil while the other set exhibits Robin Hoodish symptoms.  

The action really is non-stop and powers the book through some moments of disbelief. The ending provides the hoped for surprise.  

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.
