    “the pulse of power”. Not necessarily the source of it but the focus and use of it.

    It came today. It is going to require a second reading. Then a 3rd or fourth with a highlighter to fully absorb it. Fifty pages in I realize this. The prologue had me going, who is Martinez, I’ve never read of him? Will he be detailed later? Though I’m no literary judge, it is presented in a highly readable but VERY informative context. So much more detail added to the little I’ve read before.
