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.

Church of Spilled Blood by Jesse Miles

This is a Jack Salvo book.  That didn't  mean anything to me prior to reading this book however now I will be looking for more Jack Salvo's books.  This story took place in L.A and involved Jack, a PI, and a kidnapping of a Russian ballerina.

This was a story with a good plot and enough twists to make it interesting but not confusing.   Jack is a likeable character and that description appears to annoy some who read my reviews.  A character can be likeable due to the care in which the author portrays them.  That doesn't mean it is someone you want to have a beer or a glass of wine with but it may.  It may also be someone who is despicably dark but that portray fits the plot. I digress.

Jack has an innate sense of honor that serves him well.   The depiction of the ballerinas as the current Russian aristocracy was very interesting.

The plot move well, there was the requisite tension and good resolution.

I recommend the book.


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