By Pat Shannan

Review by Steffan Bertsch

Occasionally I have been asked to review books, but, rarely do I give an unsolicited assessment of one. I am making One in a Million by Pat Shannan the exception. It's a fact-laden piece of "fiction" about the IRS gone mad, and, while this might shock some, has set up mafia-style hit squads in the CID with the Commissioner's tacit approval! While most of you know full well that "government" agencies would never do such a thing, that's exactly what this book dares to reveal.

Shannan sprinkles the enjoyable, fast-paced novel with many esoteric facts, long hidden from view of the sleeping public, such as those revealed in "The Franklin Cover-Up" about our beloved George Bush being involved in an adolescent sex ring while holding the office of VICE president. Any freedom-loving American will appreciate the veiled references to modern heroes such as Richie Mack and courtroom tyrants like Jack Tanner, and will also enjoy the express bolstering of Tupper [Saussy]'s and Irwin [Schiff]'s reputations as the writer explains how freedom was lost as fiat money invaded our borders.

It's a spry read that is perhaps more fantasy than actual fiction, which might just get through to some sleepers, if ever it reaches their hands. You can order this trade paper book from any store that is supplied by Ingram, which is nearly every bookstore in the nation. "One in a Million" will never sell a million, the New World Order will see to that, but it could be a mid-lister if some liberty-loving people pick it up, give it a once-through, then pass it along to one of the sheeple. Almost nobody believes the truth when he or she is told it, but by handing them a "fictional" work, some pieces of the puzzle might sift through their programmed "brains."
