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.

Solitude Creek by Jeffery Deaver

When I read other reviews I am often astonished that we are discussing the same book.   This  book has some stomach rending scenes and abhorrently demented personalities but it was captivating and engaging. 

Kathryn Dance is a kinesics (body language) expert at the CBI (California Bureau of Investigation.  On a daily basis she battles criminals and the sexual bias of her law enforcement peers.   A widow, Dance, prides herself on her talent and her ethics.  The bipolar plot centers around a gun running, drug selling cartel and a sociopathic mass murderer.

Deaver does a great job fleshing out the character of Dance.   He provides motivation and color for her personality and her ethical mores.   Her family is shown with realistic behavior. 

Deaver's intricate plot has some surprising twists and turns.   That deviousness glues you to the story line trying to outguess what insidious curve Deaver will throw next.

This is an excellent plot with plenty of action and devious twists and turns.
I highly recommend it.


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