Each person, each family, each nation builds its own network of friendships, extended family, work, play, school, sports, entertainment, etc. We form our rituals of daily life, vacations, traditions, cultures, and inherited beliefs. Some of us grow beyond those inherited beliefs, be they secular or religious and, through much self-work, experience, we form our own, live our lives along the paths we have plowed with so much effort shedding the beliefs previously presented as truths by our fore-be ...more

You can see the Authors would have done an incredible amount of research and investigation into the content for this book. To say that I found the book interesting would be a vast understatement, as I really enjoyed all 29 Conspiracy Theories. I’ve often been very skeptical about a number of items that the Authors have touched on amongst these page. Like who really holds the power in running a country, especially since the politicians don’t seem to do what the 99 percent of the population want. ...more

Although the authors are careful to avoid any allusion to it, this book seems to be an integral part of the Morcan Conspiracy which aims at addicting readers to the works of either of the Morcans. For my part, I believe I've discovered that there are two trigger words that incite people to drop virtually anything they are doing and direct their attention to reading a Morcan work. These words are "James Morcan", and "Lance Morcan".

In seriousness, this book is an eye-opener and a thought provoker

The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy
by James Morcan

This book delves into some theories on controversial subjects and some very famous urban legends and (conspiracy) theories. A lot of the topics are brought at some point in one or all of The Orphan Series (books).

They bring up world wide topics such as big bankers,(US) Presidents, The British Royal Family, Pharmaceutical companies, the Vatican, the FBI, the CIA, the Military, CEO’s of huge profitin

This book is just plain enthralling. I got it just the day before yesterday and have been reading nearly non-stop. I finished it tonight and immediately started over to read it again.
I am a fan of James and Lance Morcan and have read all of their books. The Orphan Trilogy is a fast paced and thoroughly intriguing thriller. However, it seemed to explore some things that sounded like they could be true life, and I wondered about where they got the ideas. Now I know.

I received the book from the author for an honest review.

This is a great edition to compliment the Orphan Trilogy.
In itself the Orphan Trilogy was a brilliant series that held the imagination throughout the books. But while you enjoyed the skill and craftiness of Nine and his fellow orphans you could not help but ask questions. The authors added information within the books to make it more believable, using real events and people throughout so that you could almost believe that this is really h

The Orphan Conspiracies is a very well written and easily readable book which details a range of conspiracy theories, such as Area 51, the suppression of Tesla's technological inventions, False Flags and mind control projects like MK-Ultra.

I believe this is a much needed book, as it bridges the gap between authors like John Pilger and David Icke, who are of opposite extremes. There are few books in between these types of authors to give the average reader an overview of what's going on behind th

Why is this book so highly rated??? I don't get it.

The authors write - "When we set out to write this book it was not our intention to add more negativity to the world, or to depress or frighten readers: rather, we were in our research into the 29 conspiracy theories covered in our thriller series, and then relay that truth to readers through our writing."

If the intention was to relay the truth in the 29 topics of conspiracies, then I believe this book deserves 1 star at best. There is no detai

The Orphan Conspiracies have finally been explained and in great detail. After reading all of the books to the Trilogy, I often had questions. Many of the readers also had questions.

The Kindle edition was released just the other day. I couldn't put my phone down while reading it. I think I had to replug the phone into the wall several times just to keep reading it.

Some of the conspiracies in the book was about brainwashing conspiracies, electric cars and how long they have truly existed, free en

Very controversial subject matter that is an eye opener. Things I never really questioned. Some questions that came up in The Orphan Trilogy were answered too.
Way to go Lance and James.

While this book is a must read for conspiracy theorists, it is an even more important read for any concerned citizen who values objective thinking. Anyone, that is, who is concerned that the imbalanced reporting of the media, the bias of the "experts" and financially self-interested unduly influence and interfere with objectivity about the most important issues of our time.

While I don't think that James and Lance Morcan intended their book to be a reference manual, its breadth of information an

I think you really may want to read James and Lance Morcan's 'The Orphan Trilogy' to appreciate this one. Though in saying that, 'The Orphan Conspiracies' will most probably open your mind to a new way of thinking without. The authors researched this field deep by revealing behind the scenes and present facts from classified events that point to various manipulations of what we think is (the truth).

Subjects of controversial conspiracies unfold with topics such as the assassination of President K

The Orphan Conspiracies is a page turner to say the least. It touches upon controversial subjects that have been talked about for decades. After reading several chapters, I suddenly realized nothing was off limits in this book. Starting with the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, John Lennon and touching upon how HIV could have possibly been spread. And I loved the fact that even though some of us might find all of this hard to believe, the Morcans do it with a touch of humor. Otherwise some of ...more

It was nice to read an updated book regarding the current events that are taking place on the planet. I would recommend this book to people who are interested to get an idea of what is taking place in the world. This book covers many angles from the banking industry, health-care, ufos, mind-control and much more! I feel everyone on this planet should read more books like the "Orphan Conspiracies", but most of humanity is sadly in the dark because they're afraid, well by design by the 'O ...more

For some reason, I have been involved with some books and people lately that discuss what some people call conspiracy theories and unorthodox explanations of issues. I must admit, I find some of the topics (and interpretations of events) they explore very interesting. The Orphan Conspiracies is another book that explores some of these topics--some which are very relevant to politics today. The book is well-written and interesting. Occasionally, it got me thinking in ways I don't usually think. F ...more

If for no other reason than creating questions that readers will later research and discover, this book is a must read. I detest the expression 'conspiracy theory' but we all know that there are powerful influences that call many shots in the real world and if this list of examples, most of which are said to be proven, is any indication, we are in some sort of game that is manipulated by a few for the financial and power gains they want to achieve. Read them and consider that just because some f ...more

What a sensational read !!. I was really hooked to this book and just couldn't put it down. Some mind boggling conspiracy theories. Sometimes, the truth could get more vivid and fascinating than the most bizarre science fiction story one could ever imagine. Still there are lot of such mysteries out there to be revealed. The best Non- fiction book I've read since Erich von Däniken's "Chariots of the Gods". ...more

This is a very interesting book, it covers and explains the main conspiracy theories. Many of them are still debated today, such as the existence of Area 51 and the 1968 assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. This is an introductory book to The Orphan Trilogy. Read it...and you will start to see things in a different light and perspective!

I am familiar with many of the conspiracy theories (or are they?) that Lance and James Morcan write about in this book. The writers cleverly incorporated allusions to them in The Orphan Trilogy books, where they perhaps fostered a little may be in people’s minds.

This is an interesting and enlightening book that will set the open minded reader thinking. Take a look and decide for yourself.

I do hope the writers are not forced to take up residence inside a foreign government’s embassy or a foreign

The Orphan Conspiracies is a non fiction book about lots of events in history that might or might not have been covered up. Frankly, I have always wondered about some of these things, and whilst most of them may or may not be proved either way, all you can do is come to your own conclusions about them. A truly fascinating read which had my imagination going at full speed. Brilliant.

I'm so glad I got this book for free, I would hate to think that I paid to read it. The work is glib and virtually non-sourced, even when plenty of source material is readily available, the effort of compiling a bibliography or doing any real research apparently being too much to expect. There is no aspect of life that the authors cannot handily define in terms of class or race struggle. It must be very comforting for the target audience to know that they need never
