A beautifully told story with colorful characters out of epic tradition, a tight and complex plot, and solid pacing. -- Booklist, starred review of On the Razor's Edge

Great writing, vivid scenarios, and thoughtful commentary ... the stories will linger after the last page is turned. -- Publisher's Weekly, on Captive Dreams

Beneath the Velvet Glove

In line with this, this, and this, the continuing scold of government discourse continues.  This seemed to be a genuine parody, except it's not.   The last screen and its warning, 'no exceptions, no excuses and no escape' is very much in line with "click it or ticket" and all the other threats that have replaced persuasion on the lips of officialdom.  Remember, Daddy Knows Best.  It seems significant that even humor takes the iron fist in the velvet glove merely as given.
