  • Book Review: “Black List” by Brad Thor

    Book Review: “Black List” by Brad Thor

    Genre: Thriller Note: Two years ago I stopped reading “Full Black” on page 340, a “clunker”, but, I gave it my best try considering the dark times just starting in 2017. In 2019, I decided to pick up Brad Thor again. “Black List” is awesome! Caroline Romero is being followed. An employee of the top […]
