Editorial Reviews

From the Author

History is written by the winners.  - - - Napoleon

The U.S. Dollar is a paper currency.  It is conjured from nothing and backed by nothing - and yet it is the reserve currency of the world.

History teaches that all paper currencies die. And as a paper currency, the Dollar will also die.  But what does this mean, for each of us, and for the world?  This is the question that has yet to be answered; for not in recorded history has the world ever experienced the death of the world's reserve currency!

This is the story of the Dollar's death.  It's about the real world - the real world of banking and how it affects each of us in our daily lives.  Unfortunately, the real world does not always lend itself to a simple plotline - and so this story is necessarily epic in scope.

The story has so far remained untold, and for several reasons:

· It pulls disparate subplots and events from a cross section of society, weaving them into a coherent whole.  Most people may be aware of specific events from their own knowledge and experience; but may not tie in events from other (unseen) places.

· The story is about money and bankers. It is an arcane subject and considered by many to be either complex or boring.

· But the biggest reason this has not yet been told is that, with any war, the winners write the history books.  And make no mistake.  We are in a war - a war that's been fought nonstop for centuries.  It is a war not just for power, or control, or territory . . . it is a war for humanity's soul.  And so far, the bankers have been the 'winners'.

The story faithfully represents the events of history, while showing how the players (using fictional characters) may have created and/or dealt with these events.  For example, circa 1650AD, the King of England really did confiscate personal wealth held by the Mint.  Closer to home, JFK did indeed order the U.S. withdrawal from Vietnam; and the U.S. Congress did indeed hold a closed session (circa March, 2008) where they talked about the destruction of the U.S. economy and how they would save themselves and their families.  Further, the events surrounding the Liberty Dollar are a matter of recent history, and are shown by the various press releases contained herein.

Many books on money have been published.  But they've generally recounted concepts and events in a sterile fashion. But what about the people?  What about those who fought, lived, triumphed, and perished?       . . . this is their story.

More About the Author

As a student of history and money, I have a background in economics, monetary systems, rare coins, and precious metals. I also work as a consultant and systems architect, and I live in the mountains of Eastern Washington, in the service of my two cats.

Thirty-some years ago, I listened to a lecture in ECON-201 - Macro-economics. The Instructor discussed the money supply, the multiplier effect of additional money, and the multiplier effect of an increase/decrease in the velocity of money ('multiplier' is a measure of increased economic activity due to an increase in the money supply and/or (money) velocity - that is, how fast money changes hands). The Instructor mentioned in passing the notion of money creation - and he spent, maybe, 30 SECONDS DESCRIBING HOW MONEY WAS CREATED!

I distinctly remember this moment, because I did a double take. Yet it was not until later, after several years of studying economics and markets, that I actually dug deeper into the theory of money. And the more I studied, the more certain I became that our monetary system is deeply flawed and inherently corrupt. I also became convinced that our system of money was at the core of our economic issues - in short, the ability to conjure money from nothing lends itself to all sorts of corruption and distortion in the markets, the economy, and in government.

What you see here, in my books, is a passion that has developed within me over the years of my research. My intention is to present issues on money within a framework of reality and history. I believe our system of money is at the root of the death of our country, if not all of western civilization.

I hope you find my books useful and interesting, and I thank you very much for visiting my profile.

With this book I learned some important lessons about money, and about power and control.
Rogene Brewer
I especially appreciated the footnotes which helped me to grasp certain events in history and how they have impacted my life and well-being today.

I marveled at how past brief obscure one paragraph business news items were mentioned and their significance was woven into the story.

The author has taken an arcane subject "money" and written a novel that even someone with NO knowledge of economics/finance/money/precious metals and one world government would enjoy and understand. As one who retired from Short Term Bond Trading 20+ years ago, and a lover of HISTORY, I believe anyone wanting to have a broad understanding of how banks grew so powerful; the forces and families from generations ago still control much of the world's finance and OUR lives! Conspiracy theorists and those who oppose free trade, WTO, European Union, BIG government, and desire true Limited Government that our Constitution and Bill of Rights tried to give us, will learn that there are people and forces at work TODAY that want to enslave and impoverish most of us as long as they can become richer! I am NOT against wealth, but it should be obtained by selling an HONEST product at an HONEST price, and not through graft, corruption, evil and manipulation of money and the help of most of the governments in the world! THIS IS NOT A DRY BOOK BECAUSE HE USES PEOPLE IN ALL WALKS OF LIFE TO TELL THE STORY. The author indicates that he is planning 2 more books on the subject. I look forward to them EAGERLY! If I could give it 6 or 7 stars, I would!

The authors job is to write. The reviewers job is to be honest and succinct. Jewett does not limit himself to one voice rather a choir is unleashed! His effort is germane to today. I am amazed by anyone willing to put forth the effort required by creativity in any medium be it the written word or the plucked note. Dave Jewett's writing strikes the right chord!

Format: Paperback
The first book "Edge Of Darkness", takes you step by step in history as our banking system evolved. In the second book "Darkness Descends", continues until we find mankind going toward an agrarian society. These books make you want to buy gold, stock up on supplies and arm yourself, for the future. The other night I was reading in the second book and then listened to the news.....I couldn't believe how these books are playing out in real life. I also enjoyed reading the analogy between an airliner going into a nose dive and the stock market free falling. I will not give the story away but these books are a definite must read.

I ordered both from Amazon. Excellent!

I'm a little saddened because when you discover a great book; you can't put it down and the joy is soon over BECAUSE YOU'VE FINISHED. I read both books in three days.

I really enjoyed filling in the REAL life names of individuals and institutions.

I marveled at how past brief obscure one paragraph business news items were mentioned and their significance was woven into the story.

If the fictional names were changed for real names; you'd think that you were reading a HISTORY that some time traveler had brought back to you from the future.

Be sure to read BOTH books.

This book will change the way you view banking and the bankers themselves. Dave Jewett does a great job of explaining how our currency, politics and economy are manipulated by very powerful interests at the expense of ordinary Americans. Everyone should read this and take it to heart.
