This is my 4th A. Lee Martinez book. Each one has been different, and completely enjoyable. He has a wry and quixotic sense of humour, which suits my taste. Of course you have to be a Fantasy fan to enjoy the style. I found that it's important to take the time to listen carefully to get full benefit from them. I thought the narrator was excellent.

This book is excellent for seeing the causel connection of leadership that acts on bogus Intel that results in terror of citizens.

it is also good for looking into the thoughts of others in the world due to the first Crusades of the Catholic Church.

This is an example of why we should learn the lessons of history and why it should be studied.

it's also a good thriller from start to end.

enjoy.

Many years ago I was told by someone who I admired that laws alone will not help you.

For any good law to work you have to know how it applies to the circumstances:

✴ Elements of the law applied to the;
✳ facts;
✳ evidence; and
✳. someone to prosecute the case.

Without all of the above your laws are worthless.

This is also a fine example why mixed economies work better than pure market based economies.

this was the most enjoyable history lesson about the discovery of Australia and its settlement. This is a must for our primary school education and our education as adults.

this is an excellent book that makes one think about nature and nurture. the political environment both domestically and internationally. The systems be it democratic or communist. The economics be it command or market basses. Why there needs to be independence between arms of government and a judiciary that is not subject to fear and favour. Why like Australia the need for a nation Independent Commission Against Corruption.

One looks around to find a good read, then you come across this book about an amazing self built man who looks at life and how to assist others. War is without doubt a terrible thing and I do not support glorifying it. So read this account of one amazing man. It's worth it.
