New year..new read


Recommended Posts

Just started The Gold House - The Discovery - Book One of The Gold House Trilogy. It's supposably a true story about hidden ancient gold at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico that was stolen by the US Army from a couple of people who discovered it. There might even be Nazi gold stored there from WWII. So far it seems to be more of a conspiracy theory of unproven facts and vague rumors. Unless things pick up, I doubt that I'll finish this book much less the next two in the series.

I recently finished Hunting Criminals to Hiding Them: My Journey to and with the United States Marshals Service by Sylvester E. Jones Sr. I met him on my cruise last month and was impressed. He went from a poor black kid from the south side of Chicago to running the entire Witness Protection Program. He had to overcome some racism especially for his last few promotions. The book could have used some better editing but it's a remarkably interesting story. The last few chapters are a little boring as it's about his time in the upper levels of the Marshals Service and not the more down to earth catching criminals.

Next up is Bunker Hill by Nathaniel Philbrick. A historical account of the events in and around Boston that lead up to the Revolutionary War. I want to learn more about Joseph Warren. 

I recently listened to the audiobooks of the end of the Revolutionary war. Quite good. Valiant Ambition and In the Hurricane’s eye.

Just finishing:


Written right after WWII about all the efforts by Jewish people to save the Jewish people from the Holocaust and fight the Germans through armed resistance.

Just finished these two:


General Wilkinson, known as "The General who never won a battle or lost a court-martial."  Brought forth into today's dollars, he was paid on the order of a million dollars to betray American interests in the 40 years after the Revolutionary War, 20 of those years as one of America's top generals and 10 as the Army's highest ranking officer.


The history of one of the few American ships that raided the British slave trade along the African coast, with the unintended consequences of preventing the enslavement of tens of thousands of people.

Next up:


Bought these today:
