5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful First Collection! 22 Aug. 2012
By Jo King Vonbargen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Author Atkinson has given us a lovely and thought-provoking body of work in his first collection of poetry! His haiku and tanka pieces range from the steadfastness of church and faith to the biting and witty sarcasm of politics, all wonderfully rendered and clear as a bell. His sonnets reveal the many layers of man and his struggles with issues most of us deal with today. One can feel his joy and misery equally, as he lays bare the heart and soul of his mind's wanderings in search of doing the right thing and righting obvious societal wrongs. My sincere hope is that he will continue with his search for truth via poetry, as one can go places and find things unreachable by any other avenue. It is wonderful to read this initial offering from a wonderful novelist who has dipped a toe in the poetry sea and found a home there. It will be a joy to follow his growth in this new undertaking!

An excellent review but only one of very few. I'd love more people to take five minutes out to add reviews on Amazon.

Speaking of Amazon. I searched my name under their 'books' department and came across several pages of books that had nothing to do with me interspersed with my portfolio. Many of them having no relevance to my name at all. However, I did find some fascinating pricing on different pages for the same books.

£12.98used & new(3 offers) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In fact all of my books are priced at £3.27 for ebooks and 
£4.99 in paperback.

At the current time there is the presidential election in the USA and if you consider the electoral system there is undoubted connection back to the events of 9/11. There is the involvement of the security agencies, unexplained and precipitate actions by the US Government and a failure of security agencies to communicate knowledge with each other. Many of the same people are probably still in post 15 years later. So read 7 Hours After and allow your mind to wander freely and decide what is fact and what is fiction.


Patrick Steele is off crusading once again with his sidekick, fiancée Naomi Kobayashi. This time he is risking life and limb by returning to the hostile shores of the USA. He has had brushes with the authorities in that vast country on previous occasions, but now has been stimulated to return because of apparent dodgy dealings over the World Trade Centre disaster of September 11th 2001.
After discovering numerous ‘theories’ concerning 9/11 and who was behind it, Steele identifies possible links between large corporations with financial interests and political parties. In a presidential election year he is concerned that those vying for that prodigious post may have links with the disaster.
Has Steele discovered underhand dealing by the US security services? 
Did one of the major political parties have a hand in the destruction of 9/11?
Will Steele be caught by the CIA or can he escape back to the safety of the UK?
