The Threat - a review

Besides being a great police procedural tale of the FBI in action after the Boston Marathon Bombing, McCabe’s tale also warms the hearts of those of us who still believe in duty, fealty to the Constitution, honesty, and the rule of law. In a world where few believe in “unselfish service to the nation,” McCabe’s descriptions of the FBI’s processes and policies are gratifying to those of us who still believe in service.


Inspired.  Lyrical.  Erudite.  Fun.

I have both Madeline Miller's Kindle version and the ASTONISHING companion audible book narrated by Perdita Weeks.  In truth, you will really want both.  I followed along in the Kindle as I listened.  I frequently stopped the narration to luxuriate in one of Miller's translucent passages, reading it over and over again.

Review — On Tyranny:

It's easy to feel despair about America, that everything is coming apart at the seams.  Despair leads to helplessness, and that helplessness leads to Tyranny.  These books are the antidote for despair, a recipe for fighting back against Tyranny and making ourselves into better citizens and the nation a better nation.
