Description

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

Michael Veletsky, the author of two books: Ultimatum or Dinners With Saul and its sequel, The Guest List or Chatting with Saul, was born in Kiev, Ukraine when it was still a part of the Soviet Union. He and his family immigrated to the United States in 1978 and currently reside in Texas. Before retiring, Michael was gainfully employed in various areas of the economy, from services to IT to property maintenance and management. Michael's experience living under the socialistic system in the Soviet Union and under a capitalistic economy in America allowed him to see the world from multiple perspectives. He uses this unique experience in his writing and looks for answers to eternal questions of who we are, what makes us tick, and why life isn't fair. Michael likes music, movies, and books.

Advance Praise

"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

"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...

Interesting. This is a mix of philosophy and politics, while also being a bit of a thriller. It's well written and probably for those seeking a light, traditional story.

Thanks very much for the free review copy for review!!
