At first you won't believe that you would ever play these games. But then you will begin to reflect and wonder if you haven't played some of these games yourself. I enjoyed this book greatly. It is a pleasure to read. Just be…Continue

The only people who stay in character in Clean Break are a gambling addict (Adam) and a 10-year-old child (Spencer). Now I don't know about you but I would tend to believe that the man with no character left, and the young one just developing character, would be the ones most likely to violate. Instead it's the adults, who have up until now been solid, responsible and dependable…Continue

Hi! My name is Noel Linton Allen. My first book "From the Ghettos to the White House Hotel" was featured (full-page) in the June 27, 2007 edition of the New York Daily News.

I received a…Continue

I was there at two separate incidents to know 'it was all true', it all would have been hard to believe ... if I hadn't seen, or heard it... myself. I saw, I believe, I know... this all to be the truth.
