    Cheri Seymour - Courageous!

    The final long awaited and now published book by CHERI SEYMOUR - "THE LAST CIRCLE" completes two decades of her investigations into "The Octopus" and the PROMIS Software scandal, aka "The Inslaw Affair." And the misuse of power by government agencies to expose the tentacles of "The Octopus" control by a "Shadow Government" that operates beyond the reach of law enforcement - worldwide!

    Her investigations have sought answers to questions dealing with our intelligence agencies (CIA, FBI, NSA, U.S. CUSTOMS and others) trusted professionals involved in stealing commercial properties of U.S. citizens, dealing in and the transportation of drugs for profit and power. Arms sales and clandestine operations that will make the reader sit up and take notice - and question??

    The trail of the deceased now exceeds 50 people, individuals, wives and families, who have been accidented, suscided, or murdered, to cover-up the criminality that's become a cancer on America's political system. Cheri completes the work of investigative reporter Danny Casolaro, who lost his life in pursuit of answers when he became entangled in the tentacles seeking answers two decade ago. Cheri enters the labyrinth of "The Octopus" undeterred by the danger is pursuit of those answers. She has performed the most courageous act in hopes that America will wake-up, inform themselves, and spread the word, and demand honest government!

    THE LAST CIRCLE is the last word in exposing "The Octopus" with its tentacles reaching into every corner of our hollowed institutions that will, if not, exposed continue to erode and destroy the foundations America was founded on.

    If, you read no other book this year, The Last Circle is A MUST READ!!!
