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.

About the Author

A student of history and money, Dave has an extensive background in economics, monetary systems, rare coins, and precious metals. He works as a consultant and systems architect, and he lives in the mountains of Eastern Washington, in the service of his two cats.

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!

"Edge of Darkness" takes what I would usually refer to as a boring subject (economics) and makes it fascinating and intriguing! When I heard about this book, I was told that most characters are fictional but the economic references and explanations are REAL! I found this to be quite a "page turner" and finished it in just a few days! I recommend this book to everyone who has money invested in banks, bonds, retirement accounts, the stock market, etc... In other words ALL Americans should read this book! I am excitedly planning on reading Dave Jewett's next book, "Darkness Descends".

It's obvious Mr. Jewett has been studying the central banking system for a long time. Anyone who doesn't understand how central bankers control the economies of nations around the world should read this book. He weaves actual events with the fictional characters in his books and strips away a lot of the complicated jargon central bankers use to keep us regular people in the dark. One thing to be aware of before reading this book. The bad guy central bankers are not only greedy, they are sexual deviants and he goes into a lot of detail about their sexual conduct, which may not have been necessary to carry the story forward.
However, it was a good read and explains the international banker's corruption of politics and capitalism. Hopefully, if people would read this book and believe it, they would stop supporting the central banking war machine currently running the world.

I'm an 84 year old grandmother. I chose this book because I am worried - I see what's happening around us, to our economy and to old peoples retirement. Before I picked this up, I knew little of money or economics. But these `chronicles' taught me some important lessons - especially about money and how it works, and why our economy is sick. And along the way, I found it very entertaining - with surprises, twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat.

The author tells tales of people and events, tying them together in a way that brings home the plight we're in. His characters - some are evil and vicious, while others are heroic - all feel real to me. Their individual stories provide a depth that is far greater than mere facts about money and economics. I feel for some of the characters, while others I can find only disgust.

With this book I learned some important lessons about money, and about power and control. For these reasons alone, this book will go down as an important contribution to our culture. This is a big statement, I know. Yet I believe this is true.

This story is important, and I whole-heartily recommend it.

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.
