My Grading Of The Candidates At The Iowa GOP Debate.

At the time I am writing this, The seventh and final Republican primary debate has concluded less than two hours ago. I’ve had some time to process the event and even get some opinions from personal friends as well as colleagues in the political commentary field and one thing is unanimous: we are all very thankful that these primary debates are finally over and done with. I actually skipped the last two Republican debates because of how redundant I felt things were in the first four.

Book Review: Patriot by Ted Bell.

With the highly anticipated release of SPECTRE in November, I’ve been doing all I can to celebrate the upcoming James Bond film which even includes reading the original Casino Royale novel by Ian Fleming.

Robert Ludlum’s The Holcroft Covenant: Is it worth the long read?

Ludlum_-_The_Holcroft_Covenant_Coverart

As many of my regular readers and podcast audience members may or may not know, I am a huge fan of Audible which allows me to purchase audiobooks at a discounted price and listen to them wherever I am.

This month I decided to use one of the two audiobook credits I receive monthly to get the audiobook version of The Holcroft Covenant  by Robert Ludlum. The book was originally published in 1978, and was later made into a movie 1985. The story follows Noel Holcroft, a young architect who finds out that his biological father was a German S.S. commander that grew a conscience about the horrors of The Holocaust before the war ended. Noel finds out that his father left him a $7 billion fund which is to be distributed amongst the survivors of The Holocaust . Holcroft is also warned that a remnant sect of Nazi sympathizers and their offspring will try and prevent him from obtaining the money and will instead use it to start “The Fourth Reich”.
