    So near is falsehood to truth that a wise man would do well not to trust himself on the narrow edge CiceroYou think you re the only one who can quote an ancient philosopher Plato said He was a wise man who invented beer Does that mean you re ready for another Far be it from me to contradict Plato Seth and Gideon Guardians of the Night There is no instance of a nation benefiting from prolonged warfare Sun TzuFrom secrecy and deception in high places, come home, America From military spending so wasteful that it weakens our nation, come home, America George McGovern_________________________Military contractors Self serving, obsessive, narcissistic And often Well, let s just say above the law often comes with governmental protection no matter what the contractor does And sometimes, what the contractors do is beyond horrifying.Guardians of the Night is an unusual novel a cutting edge look at cutting edge military technology, to be sure But it grows well beyond a simple military suspense thriller That is an amazing story line in itself But there is a strong literary bent as well There are literary and movie references galore, music and history and things that go bump in the night Add in a well developed, believable character list, convoluted storytelling, and of course, Sirius, a police...

    Enjoyable free Kindle book I believe this was the December Kindle First selection that I chose.The main characters are a quirky and very witty detective, Gideon, and his police dog partner, Sirius They solve two interesting cases in this story, and they re not at all your usual cases Gideon and Sirius are the special case team, which leaves them room for some interesting and perhaps atypical police work I found the first 2 3 of the book really entertaining, well developed, and well written, but the ...

    Alan Russel knows how to tell a story This is the second in his detective series keeping Gideon and Sirius his trusted partner and canine Not disappointing at all and even better than the last book Looking forward the 3 I did not see the ending coming at all in any respect Keep it up

    3.5 I liked the twist at the end.I like the dog, but the author tries too hard to be clever.And I really didn t give a shit about the main character s relationship with his ladyfriend, and he spent a lot of time talking about that.And as a proceduralit pulls one of those tricks where everything is going along and then all of a sudden it breaks off and next thing you know he s explaining everything to the perp in a Sherlock Holmes kind of way Not a good procedural The best parts of procedure were skipped And the choices the author made about what does and does not get resolved by the endthat annoyed me I won t say any for spoilers Something odd the guy appears to be mildly psychic, but this doesn t really help him much with solving the crimes Not sure what the point is of that, but it amused me.I did like the dog I am kind of curious enough to consider reading the first in the series this is the second Even though most of the story, as far as...
