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 President's Shadow by Brad Meltzer

The Inner Circle was the last Brad Meltzer book I read. I recommended it and I recommend this book as well.   Beecher White, an archivist in the National Archives, is back as the main protagonist.   As in the last book, the book is fraught with treachery, political intrigue, questionable ethics and secret societies.    Someone is out to gut the President or the Culper Ring or both. 

Beecher White is chasing demons, so internal and some external.   Beecher is driven by an unquenched thirst for information about his deceased father and tasked with leading a secret society pledged to protect a President he can't respect. 

The secondary characters are as colorful and demented as an LSD fueled nightmare.   Bizarre circumstances and a pointed reference to despicable government experiments provide a tense environment for the story.

This was fast paced and intricate.  Meltzer also does a very nice job tying up all the loose ends.

I recommend it.

Web Site:

 This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
