I HAVE AND AM LEARNING SO MUCH FROM BETTY WEBB'S STORIES THAT I (PARTIALLY OR TOTALLY) HEARD OR KNEW ABOUT! OR WHAT I DID KNOW WAS FROM THE BIASED.... I ALWAYS THOUGHT THE USA PRESS WAS PRETTY STRAIGHTFORWARD AND TRUTHFUL, GUESS I WAS WRONG.
I'M 75, born 1940, 3rd GENERATION USA BORN (NORTHERN EUROPEAN ANCSTORS), PROUD AND HAPPY TO BE AN AMERICAN,. B U T!! NOT THRILLED WITH CERTAIN PORTIONS OF OUR HISTORY. PAST AND PRESENT! HOWEVER I CAN'T REWRITE HISTORY, ONLY VOTE TO HELP CHANGE OUR FUTURE. I DO **MY BEST** TO TREAT ALL OTHERS AS I WOULD PREFER TO BE TREATED! NO MATTER WHO OR WHAT THEY ARE!
THIS STORY IS FICTION, BUT BASED ON PROVEN PRINTED FACTS. READ THE AUTHORS NOTES
WHY IN HELL WERE WE SETTING OFF 2 NUCLEAR BOMBS EACH MONTH IN NEVADA FROM 1951 TO 1992???
THE GOVERNMENT AND MILITARY KNEW WHAT EFFECT ATOMIC BOMBS HAD/HAVE ON HUMAN BODIES AFTER DROPPING THE A BOMBS ON JAPAN, SO WHY. IN HELL DID THEY MARCH SOLDERS INTO A TEST ZONE AND SET OFF AN ATOMIC EXPLOSION RIGHT ABOVE THEM?????
NO WONDER THERE'S SO MANY US CITIZENS CONTRACTING AND DYING FROM VARIOUS TYPES OF CANCER.
THE US GOVERNMENT AND THE MILITARY IDIOTS AT THE PENTAGON KILLED JOHN WAYNE AND HALF OF ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WORKED ON THE "CONQUER" MOVIE SET FILMED AT SNOW CANYON IN NEVADA.
EVEN THOSE BOMBS SET OFF UNDERGROUND, SPEWED NECL INTO ALL THE AIR FLOWING EAST ACROSS THE US,
February 7 new edition about Lena Jones life will be released DESERT VENGEANCE. I am looking forward to reading it.
The author knows Arizona and is always correct in her street placement, locales, etc. I hate to read a book when I know an area and it is obvious the author has either spent very little time there or is sloppy when it comes to review. This book has a bit more social commentary than is usual in these books. It tells of the atomic testing in Nevada in the mid part of the 20th century and the effect on the Indian nations in Utah and Arizona. There is also a tie in to an old John Wayne movie! Lena goes North to help her partner who is arrested for a murder and is quickly involved in the town's love/hate relationship with the outside world and the government. If you like your mysteries with more than just a murder to be solved, these books are for you.
