They are like little children's paper boats. Somebody makes them, folds them out of paper, and lowers them into the water, where they are picked up and carried by the current and wind. These boats swim down the stream, imagining they are in control, but in reality, they are not. They proceed in their downstream journey, thinking they are the captains of the ships, without knowing that the journey end is based only on the quality of the paper they are made of, how strong the stream is, and which way the wind blows…
A Note From the Publisher
"This is a thoughtful, genre-defying novel where intimate conversation and honest argument dominate what amounts to a running Socratic dialogue about good and evil and free will in all of its political and sociological shades." –Gojan Nikolich, author of Ashes in Venice: A Vengeance Thriller and The Gopher King: A Dark Comedy
"This is a political novel and a philosophical one as well as a thriller. It's a book written to make the reader think and it works well without becoming boring or tedious." –Casey Dorman, author of The Truth That Can't Be Told and Ezekiel's Brain
"The story is told in such a way that, as the reader, I often felt I was right there in the conversation with the protagonist and other characters; my mind humming along in thought as I contemplated the arguments being presented by various characters. It also helped that the author has a good sense of humor, which shone through frequently and made for some great banter between characters." –Jane Powell, author of The Girl Next Door... And How She Grew
