A Legal Thriller


Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

An Attorney at Law has many options during his career if his credentials are excellent. Tom McMurtrie was one of Alabama’s best, and after a short career as a trial lawyer circumstance led him to decide to become a professor at his alma mater; the man called.

Fast forward; a major accident occurs, Tom is in trouble at the University, and one of his recent students, Drake, who he had an altercation with is called upon by him to proceed with the case for the plaintiff.  

Luckily, the story is not that simple. As the plot evolves, Tom's, his student's, and the people involved with the accidental crime infested case moves at a fast pace. The reader must pay attention to keep the characters and the events in their proper sequence.

This thriller is a page-turner: the characters are developing, and actions understandable; the backdrop of the case is constantly changing, and the alternatives of the plaintiff's lawyer’s case fluctuate as much as a yo-yo.

This legal novel is as good as it gets.

Review of Adios America




Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

Let me start by saying I am an Independent voter. I read this political book with limited political knowledge or interest in same.

Ms. Coulter's discourse is about where the United States of America is heading because of its immigration's policy (Legal or illegal). She details where we are, what is happening, and where we are going if we stay on the path we are following albeit before the election of Donald J. Trump as President of the USA.

I was overwhelmed by the information she outlined and chronicled using notes of accurate reports. If half of what she says is true, this country has been on the wrong path as far as immigration is a concern. And, if that path continues, America as we have known it will cease to exist.

The prose was somewhat above my political knowledge but was easy to comprehend with a little investigation on my part. The flow moved along smoothly and was enjoyable to read.

I feel this book is important to read if you care to understand Mr. Trump's lauding it and putting some of its principles into his policies while running for President, which was well received.

Review of Hostile Witness

Hostile Witness

A Josie Bates Thriller

Rebecca Forster

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

Firstly, I will note that Ms. Forster's prose kept me on the edge of my seat. The flow of this thriller was a fast pace. She laid out the framework of a drama that one couldn't wait for the next turn of events.

The character Josie Bates, a lawyer, is developed and complicated. Her cognitive decision-making drives the narrative in a direction the reader will follow with interest, enjoying the results.

In support, with love and concern, is her lover and ex-cop Archie, who fulfills Josie's needs as a friend, lover, and crime solving helper. Along with Max, Josie's dog, the legal conundrums are delved into.

This book is the first in a series of detective work, courtroom drama, and understanding of why people break the law. Conflicts are resolved but not always to the reader’s delight.

Ms. Forster has put together a good team that the reader will want to turn to in the future, as I will, to passed a few hours in Josie's legal world. I am looking forward to reading another courtroom thriller of hers.

Review of The Deep State


Mike Lofgren

Reviewed by Author Roy Murry

As a Washington, D.C. Beltway retired insider, Mr. Lofgren gives the reader his interpretation of The Deep State of the United States of America – its government and how it functions. Interwoven within the policy-making of the government are factors that have been inherent for over thirty years.

Decisions that control our daily lives and our costly foreign policies are somehow managed by the personnel fixtures within all the leading agencies. CIA, FBI, State Department, Military, et al. Influencing movers and doers of the government, not the elected ones, and long-term legislators manipulate the direction of the USA towards a Globalist agenda.

Mr. Lofgren’s specific scenarios of corroding government institutions that interact with corporate and banking to reach their goals are compelling. His evaluations of these sinister plots are somewhat disturbing even though hard to prove.

The influences (Career officials) throughout the government, according to Mr. Lofgren and somewhat valid, have directed the USA on the wrong path – Not Making America Great Again, but destroying our future as a world leader. In the final chapter, his not so perfect solutions are developed.

I found Mr. Lofgren’s thesis interesting, well developed, and profound. Although, his leaving out International Banking (Ala Rothschild et al.) other controlling individuals like George Soros and the Council on Foreign Relations  a little concerning. But you can’t put everything in one book nor open yourself to lawsuits.

The discourse is well worth the read for those who are inclined at understanding how the government may work. Purchase:
