4.0 out of 5 stars Tom Gilmartin; a blast of fresh airin the Agean stables., 12 May 2014

Not an easy read. The names come thick & fast and, of course, the narrator has little idea who he is talking to in the complex web of Dublin politics. The reader shares the experience of a man well out of his depth in a shark infested sea.
Apart from the barefaced money grabbing political culture there is also the petty small-town mindset of a rich man defeated by a woman defending her right to her inheritance which he covets.
The "Because I.m worth it" attitude of small minded crooks develops a scenario in which nobody wins, least of all the ignorant inhabitants who are the ones paying the price of the card game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh air in a poluted world., 24 Mar 2014

The way things were dealt with was almost unbelievable! No ordinary victim would have had as little security during an investigation. Kennedy was set to bring the banking establishment to book. Three other presidents had approached this task. all were "executed". The Kennedy brothers were getting too close to uncovering the real World Government. They had nothing but courage on their side.

I suspect there were others who have been "dismissed" quietly, perhaps easier targets than presidents. Perhaps someday light will shine in the more murky places of our so called "democracy".

I remember the physics researchers in Birmingham saying that the new microwaves they were working on were a great way to warm your hands on a frosty morning.
Cooking was the next big thing. Is there anything good which the military cannot turn to evil?

He describes the behavior of the paranoid schizophrenics who tend to gravitate towards jobs in the "security" services.
They are not capable of living in harmony with their neighbors and frequently tend to gravitate to the exclusive club of "In people". This is fairly typical of introspective children who have a "Me or Them" attitude to their classmates. Based on fear, they need constant reassurance that they are top dogs. Bullies become torturers.
Such people are very useful in a world governed by ignorance and greed. The tragedy is that others who get caught up in the web, often for idealistic reasons, are trapped. Whistle blowing is a dangerous occupation; that fact does not say much for the rest of us.
PS. The American spellings are due to your word processor! I have given up arguing!!!
