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.

Mink Eyes by Max McBride

I don’t know if this is a first effort but regardless it was very good.  The story centers on a divorced, private eye, O’Keefe, his attorney friend Harrigan and a mink farm ponzi scheme.

O’Keefe is hired by some stockholders of the mink farm to find out why their money has disappeared.  He discovers there is more to the mink farm than meets the eye. 

Harrigan and O’Keefe are lifelong friends who aspired to be metaphoric Knights of the Grail as alter boys.  Their plans for life did not pan out in the manner they were hoping.  A sub theme of the book is their dissatisfaction with their choices and wishes they had taken the road less traveled.

Tag, a femme fatale, who is up to her neck in the nefarious activities of the mink farm, discovers there are a few chinks in her cynical shell.   Chinks that O’Keefe hopes to pry into full blown armor failure.  

The plot was good and intricate enough to keep my interest.
The characters were recognizable, larger than life versions of folks we all know.

I enjoyed the book and recommend it.

Web: (seems like just a place holder, no content as of this review.)

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