I just looked it up and you're absolutely right. I cannot believe with the number of people who've read that book before publication - including me at least seven times - that that mistake made it through. Thank you for pointing it out. We try mightily to catch such mistakes, and inevitabely something slips through. You are the first to find this one, but I'm sure you won't be the last. (less)

“When she had asked him how he was able to kill two men with his bare hands, he had gone into asshole mode, telling her not to look a gift horse in the mouth.”

“In my mind, the world is split neatly into two groups: meat-eaters and plant-eaters. Nothing is wrong with either one. Both are necessary. One contributes much, much more to society than the other. The other is necessary to protect the contribution. I’m a meat-eater. My existence allows the plant-eater to contribute. Some plant-eaters, living in a so-called civilized world, call me evil, but at the end of the day, when the bad man comes and the plant-eater’s praying for a miracle, I’m what shows up.”
Brad Taylor, One Rough Man

“he wasn’t a bad guy, as far as assholes go.”

John Thanks for the add and Dewey kicks ass! Won your book, No Fortunate Son, through this site. Merry X-mas and peace to you and your family.


Samuel Can't wait for The Polaris Protocol, the "epic threat" of the story looks highly unique and asymmetric.
