Review: Treason

Treason was a free book I picked up from the Kindle store. In fact, all of Don Brown's books are available for free. It didn't take 3 chapters to figure out why. When I read that this book was about a JAG case and JAG lawyers, I was excited because of my good experience with John G. Hemry's excellent JAG in space novels.

However, these novels are a different story altogether. It starts off by stereotyping Muslim characters as being religious fanatics, and then depicts the two protagonists (beautiful, white, Christian characters of course) trying to put them in jail, but not before depicting the justice system as being a joke by putting an innocent Filipino-American in jail first.

By the time I got to the end of the book, I had decided that the remainder of Don Brown's books would also have no redeeming value, but the last few pages advertising the Christian press that published the novel explained it: the evangelical religions are having a great time blasting away at each other, and I have no trouble believing that the same people who publish such hateful novels would have no problem shooting doctors who provide abortion services.

Not recommended, even at the Kindle price of $0.00.
