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.

Into A Dark Frontier by John Mangan

Whew!  The author has action and adventure nailed!  This was a hard book to put down.  In many places it was hard to read due to the brutality of the story but it was also very thought provoking.   Africa is depicted as a new frontier after a series of events leads to a dramatic depopulation.   The protagonist is a former Seal who has been identified falsely as a terrorist.  The story is his fight against a corrupt system.
Mangan postulates some potential issues with the United Nations and with the “military and industrial” clique.   The “fat cats” are dictating what is being done by the “one world” attitude and the U.S. military.  (the quotation marks are my interpretation and not necessarily what the author intended.  

The idea of political correctness running amuck and big brother rearing his ugly head is certainly alive in today’s headlines.  The best magicians focus your attention on their right hand while their left hand is lifting your wallet.   Focusing attention on professional athletes kneeling or not is clearly distracting attention from health care, national disasters and North Korea.   All of this taking place after Mangan paints similar behavior in his novel.  

Lt. Col. (R) John Mangan is a
decorated combat rescue pilot

The author grabs you by the throat, shakes you around and then pushes your nose to the page.   I look forward to seeing more from John Mangan.   A little polish, a nudge here and there and you are looking at mega best sellers.

I highly recommend but don’t expect to like a possible future.


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