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.

Broken Trust by W.E.B. Griffin

I particularly Griffin's books about Philadelphia cops as I live nearby.  This is another book set in the years when the term Killadelphia was applied to the city due to the number of murders in the city.   Matt Payne or Wyatt Earp is the main protagonist again.

I liked this book better than Deadly Assets which was the last Philly cop story I read from Griffin.   A disjointed aspect in that book decreased my affection for the story.   Broken Trust flowed better and it was much easier to follow.  

Griffin most definitely is familiar with Philadelphia and regardless of their names, political figures in the book are easily identified.   Sadly Griffin's cynicism does not seem at all far fetched.   Looking at the number of Philadelphia notables who have recently been convicted and incarcerated, his book smacks more of non-fiction than fiction.  This book is better than the last but still not up to  the standards of his past books. 

This book was an entertaining read with a sad but realistic commentary on politics.

Web Site:

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