    1. Makes you think about what is really happening in our world. What does our government know and what does our government really do behind the scenes?

    2. Peter Lancewhen you hear him speak, he will just grab hold of your brain and not let go. I think his best book is probably Triple Cross, which is so amazingly detailed and leaves people exhaustedbut this is a man with FACTS. Also theories, but no doubting he has facts.I might be able to read Triple Cross again without throwing it across the room, but until Bush is out of office I am pretty close to the edge. Wonder if the truth about 9/11 will ever come out? At least in my lifetime? Doubtful. Sc [...]

    3. I remain a long time Peter Lance fan. His attention to detail is a blessing and his tenacity to present facts that may contradict many preconceived opinions and prejudices is refreshing change. Peter is the standard for excellence.

    4. Very informative. Lance used many sources to back up his information and all of it was very interesting. Definitely recommend it if you like conspiracy theories.
