Usually, Kyra Davis's books are a light, funny and entertaining read. Unfortunately, this book is nothing more than a trite political rant. It diminished the story content to a small minded political agenda. What a shame.
This book is jammed packed with data, sourced facts, studies, and case after case proving an armed citizenry is the best deterrent to crime. While the opposition to an armed citizenry, the highest expression of freedom known to man, has nothing on its side but emotion. For that matter, for the gun control advocates this will mean nothing.
Because many of these people are True Believing ideologues with a utopian vision, and as with ideologues and utopists truth never gets in their way. For the True Believer it is a moral imperative to reject objective facts, objective standards and objective logic, to declare objectivity itself impossible and undesirable. They exploit tragedies in order to further a political agenda and demonize good people who abide by the laws. So don't get this book thinking you will show them the data and they will see the light, because they won't.
Get the book to help you better understand what the real agenda behind gun control advocates.
Due to the books significance in both content & research I purchsed the book after I listened to the audio. This book is reference material I will keep returning to.
Melanie Phillip's "A World Turned Upside Down." both books identify Islam & the Left as a religion and a threat to the survival of America and The West, however Melanie comes to the same conclusions from a different angle. She sees the Left's dogma as anti-enlightenment & she does not come to American values as the solution as does Dennis. Both books are outstanding & must reads in order to understand the great forces destroying Western values & The West.
Why the West needs American values in order for liberty to prevail
This book would have been perfect if Dennis read it himself.
DeMille gets it just right. Fast action, laughter, edge of your seat suspense, great story line, and not PC (politically Correct) which is one of the reasons Corey is awesome. In this book John's humor seems to be rubbing off on Kate too, another delight. Finally, don't let me forget Scott Brick who is the perfect John Corey. Thanks for the great time.
This was an awful book only to be surpassed by the worst narration I have ever heard. I waxed between hysterical laughter and revulsion.
The main characters' voices were Minnie Mouse and Guido from Jersey. No, really. There was a subplot that played into every stupid stereotype you have ever heard before.
This was as good as "The Lincoln Lawyer" and "The Narrows". It teamed up Detective Harry Bosch and Lawyer Micky Haller together and even provided a wild twist at the end. This book was a page turner from the start. The courtroom action was gripping. My only desire would have been to fill in Bosch's detective character more. He seemed to be an enigma and that doesn't mesh with the Harry Bosch books I have read. All in all this was a fun ride (read) and I can't wait for his next book.
I have been a fan of Vince Flynn for a while, but this is one of his best books yet. At one point I couldn't put it down. I laughed, I had my heart strings pulled, I got angry and I cheered Rapp on to get the bad guys. I love a book that can get me emotionally invested in it and this is one of them. The Narrator was top notch too.
This was a fun listen. Not deep, but I smiled and laughed throughout the entire book. If you are a Susan Elizabeth Phillips fan you will love this book. Great narration too.
