Par Lance

Par Lance is where I come to talk with my friends, mainly to discuss books. 

Par can mean at face value,and Lance is just me.


From the Oxford English Dictionary:

Parlance /'pa:l(Ə)ns/

This was another fast-paced story. Easy to read in less than a day if you have the time.

A high-powered lobbyists with plenty of secrets is given a conditional pardon by the outgoing President of the US of A. He is then on the run, with plenty of people out to kill him or, at the very least, double-cross him. He is isolated and can trust nobody.

In northern Italy, he lives a precarious life for a couple of months. After that? Well, you'll just have to read the book.

I can promise you heaps of excitement and tension in abundance.

Very much recommended to all of my friends.
