Synopsis: For 2,500 years academics and historians had concluded that Ramesses II was the Pharaoh of the Exodus account when the Israelites left Egypt. But there was no evidence in support of that theory and every reason to disbelieve it, which led to the observation that the whole story was just a myth.

“Striving for Perfection” by Colin Jaque takes a new look at the historical events and, using all the information available from the Bible and Egyptian record in order to now show what actually happened and when it occurred.

“Striving for Perfection” covers the social, economic and religious concerns that led to the enslavement of the Israelites and the belittling by Moses who goaded a weak and worthless Pharaoh (who was thrust onto the throne by his vicious and dictatorial predecessor) to his eventual death.

“Striving for Perfection” brings alive the Bible story from Joseph to Moses fitting perfectly with the best knowledge we have of the 18th Dynasty Monarchs of Ancient Egypt and goes to proving the truth that the Exodus did take place enabling a date to be put to this crucial event.

Critique: Impressively researched, organized and presented, “Striving for Perfection” is extraordinarily informative with a thoroughly ‘reader friendly’ accessability that will be appreciated by both academia and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject. While especially and unreservedly recommended for community, college, and university library collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that “Striving for Perfection” is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $4.99).”

Our congratulations to Colin for well deserved recognition.

“Point of No Return” by Ethan Ross. Anti-Terrorist Thriller Uncovers SAS Operative’s Fierce Hidden Agenda…

Ethan Ross’s ‘Point of No Return’ is an intense, vivid and gripping thriller that is the result

9781912505098

of hundreds of hours of research into anti-terrorist military operations. While fiction, it reads like a documentary – as a British SAS soldier is tasked with forming an anti-terrorist taskforce. However, Jack Copeland has other ideas…

The systematic destruction of several key US diplomatic installations in the Middle East by a ruthless terrorist campaign and the kidnapping of Charles Perez, the US Ambassador to Sierra Leone, forced the President to act. Jack Copeland is former British SAS now employed by the Americans to spearhead the anti-terrorist group ‘Scorpion’. The rescue mission cost lives, and Copeland realised that he was losing the support of the very people who had placed him in this position.

He had a hidden agenda that he knew needed the support and approval of his Commander-in-Chief, the President of the USA; he also knew that in order for the plan to succeed, there was one other person to whom he needed to turn.

The story is based on the author’s vast experience in the military and personal security.
