- America: The Last Great Hope (volume 2) by William J. Bennett
- Another Man's Moccasins, Craig Johnson
- Unveiled, by Deborah Kanafani
- Redemption, by Lee Jackson
I'd give them all a B+. Bennett's work is always well-researched, whether you agree with his politics or not is another issue. The Johnson mystery was a strange mix of Asian, American, and Native American cultures but he made it work. Kanafani's story gave deeper insight into Mid-East politics (which I badly need), and Redemption was a scary trip into the future. It emphasized post-9/11 politics and civil liberties.
