A Review of "Duly Constituted Authority"
This nail-biter is about extraordinary events in an atmosphere not unrecognizable from the present. Reformers ceaselessly determined to upend the social order. Political correctness gone mad. Threats to military readiness. Slashing defense budgets. A 'gay' president. An uncertain international security environment. Recidivistic Russia. Belligerent North Korea. Alex Drinkwater has written a tale with noble themes, cruel actions, and the unfortunate impact of the corruption of power. With characters to love and others to despise, and enough outrageous acts for several plots, this book will entertain you, instruct you in the ways of our government, and reward you with great entertainment. I liked it!

A "friendly" review of "The Ghosts of Hanoi" by a previous purchaser.
"A friend recommended this book to me. It was the first electronic book I've purchased. I bought it in .pdf format for use on my laptop, and devoured it on a train ride between Albuquerque and Chicago. The story was fast-paced and had the added benefit of geographical accuracy. It's evident the author did his research and the subject matter was of great interest to me due, probably, due to my experiences..."

From another purchaser of "The Ghosts of Hanoi:"
This adventure of an uncomfortable period a lot of us haven't thought about recently is fast-paced with gritty no-nonsense dialog, and characters so recognizable that you might feel like you want to slap some sense into a few of them! Anyone fed up with bueracracy and overpowering seniors with an agenda will appreciate the dilemma faced by Buzz Basilio, the main character. His headstrong ways lead some very surprising outcomes and a few twists that will drive the reader through this story. The settings are familiar to those in Washington, DC, and to those who have been in Southeast Asia. Definitely worth the read!

A Review of "Tempus Non Fugit"
A masterful literary handling of one of mankind's great quests...finding a fountain of youth, the elixir that will dramatically extend life. Mr. Drinkwater's "what if" takes us on a brief but fascinating journey with scientist/inventor Bernard Turcotte and his colleague Garrett Lanier as they inject themselves,and others, with the former's newly discovered and largely untested compound, TNF, and embark on the wonderful journey of near agelessness... or is it? Their unexpected "rewards" for discovering a magical near-cure for aging makes a great read! Bravo, Mr. Drinkwater.
