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.

Reliquary by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child




I've read books from each of these authors separately and I have read books that they have collaborated together for the story.   Each are good separately but together they are excellent.   This story is a follow up to Relic but it  stands alone just fine.  Dapper FBI agent Pendergast is the only consistent re-occurring character I recall from their books.   Someone or something is preying on the "mole" people , the homeless who live in the labyrinth of tunnels that hide under NYC.   When a prominent socialite is a victim, everything changes.

Preston and Child are masters at creating scenarios that are simultaneously bizarre and plausible.   I found the references to the myriad tunnels under NYC highly intriguing enough so that I spent a fair amount of time online reading about this wide spread phenomenon. 

This book has plenty of action, social commentary and thought provoking plot lines to attract a wide variety of readers.

I highly recommend.

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