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 Forgotten by David Baldacci

I found myself looking at John Puller and thinking Jack Reacher.   Baldacci's character doesn't head butt but...he is bad ass.   Puller, an Army Criminal Investigator, finds himself, once again, involved him affairs that at best can be peripherally related to his oath of office.   Instructed by his dementia laden, father, Puller Sr., John finds him self in Paradise looking for trouble.

This is an action packed action adventure.   I would recommend blocking out enough time to read it at one sitting rather than annoying your loved ones with major distraction over a period of days. 

Puller has the no non-sense approach to life that is epitomized by Jack Reacher.   My apologies to both authors for their character comparisons but I get a strong, strangely familiar familial vibe that suggests that these two characters were siblings separated at birth.

Paradise Florida is not what it seems and Puller sees sides of Paradise that he wishes he could erase from his memory.   Puller is a tough guy with a soft spot for those who are unable to protect themselves.   He does have more regard for social propriety and laws that the aforementioned twin.

The issue the book addresses is one of disturbing notion.   One can only hope that it is being dealt with in as firm a manner as it was in this book.

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.
