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.

Dark Lady by Richard North Patterson

Legal thriller does not really describe this book.  There is anguished soul searching, perverse sex and brutal murders set in an economically challenged city.   

Stella Marz is an assistant prosecutor in the city of Steelton which was loosely based on Cleveland.   Stella spends a great deal  of time concerned about her past and what it has taken to get to  her current position.  Her boss is running for mayor and if successful she may have the opportunity  to be the chief prosecutor.   How much of her integrity and morality will have to be sacrificed for her to reach her goals?   That is the question that provides her searing soul searching throughout the book.  

Gritty inter-city crime and big city graft are the setting of the book.   The author seems to see that reaching any type of success in this type of environment necessitates an extremely flexible moral fiber.  

Soul searching trumps action  but there is action and some very touching emotional scenes. 

I highly recommend the book.
