    Story
    (582)

    In South America a 96-year-old man of great wealth reads a book late one night and an hour later he lies dead in his bed, the secrets of his past starkly revealed. Six months later another mystery man lies dead at the bottom of his pool in a villa in Provence. This time, however, there's a witness at the scene: Shaw, the shadowy operative from The Whole Truth who barely escapes with his life.

    B. Bozeman says: "Disappointing"
    "By far the worst Balducci. Worst book of the year?"
    Overall

    Surprised to see the same author who created such incredible characters in the Camel Club has stooped to flat, boring, predictable. Having to use teen sex rings, torture and holocaust to have us think the bad guy is a villain worthy of vigilantly acts. Did not find anything, or character in this book worthy of the time lost reading it.

  • 1491: New Revelations of the Americas Before Columbus

    Story
    (614)

    In this riveting, accessible work of science, Charles Mann takes us on an enthralling journey of scientific exploration. We learn that the Indian development of modern corn was one of the most complex feats of genetic engineering ever performed. That the Great Plains are a third smaller today than they were in 1700 because the Indians who maintained them by burning died. And that the Amazon rain forest may be largely a human artifact.

    Case says: "Hotly debated new theories, but NOT revisionism"
    "1491? Not really"
    Overall

    By far the bulk of the book is dedicated bashing both Spanish and English Anerica, well over a century post-Columbian.
    Nothing new to be found here.
