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.

Unholy Code by Thomas Waite

This is a frightening thriller that builds on previous novels by Waite but stands alone quite well.   There are references to the previous books but no back store.  The head of a cyber security agency employed by the U.S. government, Lana, is targeted by  Steel Fist and Golden Voice, two cyber villains.  The villains want to bring discord to the country as well as carrying grudges focused on Lana.

Without the presidential election debacle of 2016 there may not have been as much believability of this book.   The divisiveness of that campaign showed how emotions can be stirred without regard to rational thinking or common sense.  The divide and conquer approach to war is clearly illustrated by the author's use of bigotry and bias.   Incitement of aspects of society to attack or deride other aspects of our society is used by Steel Fist.  Steel Fist is unaware that he may not be as much the master of his domain that he thinks. 

Waite includes Islamic extremists attacking the country due to un-natural disaster raising water levels and providing a disrupted coastline open to invasion.  

The story also includes some unlikely heroes and love interests.

This was a sadly frightening story based on recent divisive rhetoric and hacking attacks. 

It was, however, an exciting read.

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