  • Kidnap and Ransom section is maybe best in whole series

    The use of the word "addendum" in the title may not sell you that this fourth book in the series is as essential to read as the first three, but don't be fooled. While there are fewer mind-blowing geopolitical revelations and less hidden history than the first three books, the section on the author's period of private sector kidnap and ransom response work is probably the most vivid and riveting in the entire NOC series. He may want to consider a new series devoted entirely to ransom negotiations in Latin America.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Public education at its greatest

    READ READ READ all these books, please! When I started reading this series, the author implored any experienced investigative journalists to follow this story very closely...” It’s obvious that while some of the finer details pertaining to some of the events have been understandably left unspoken (for the author’s own protection), there are many deep muck racking articles that could be written based off of the evidence in these books. WHAT I HAVE LEARNT as I have just finished the final book is the author has quite potentially already exceeded the potential impact one or a few journalists could have had, armed with this information. He has drawn the minds of his readers to dark and unseen corners. These stories have, at least for myself, provided a diagnostic file on malfeasance and misdeeds based off of historical events. I have been able to use this not as evidence to prove any argument I might happen to make against Government X or Corporation Y. But as a reminder to approach a claim or assertion (made by whoever) with care, from multiple angles and to tease out all sources of evidence and question it and my own thinking until dots of information are strung together and the shadows recede. Most importantly, I’d like to think that all readers of this series can now approach all angles of their life with a healthy amount of critical skepticism; particularly those areas relating in some way to governance and the decentralised power of oversight that people in democratic nations hold over their governments. Educating people in such a way is one of the most noble causes a person can pursue. I need not say anymore. Thank you for your writings!

    Thanks for your feedback!
