This story is both a gripping detective tale and a walk through history. The environment of post-revolution America comes alive; I found myself personally engaged with the (real) people as the truth revealed itself.

The revelation of the full extent of the Russian moon program and its race against America to put a man on the moon has not been told as clearly before. You can feel the excitement, frustration and dejection when the Soviets narrowly missed their goal.

We need to be reminded that heroes walk among us in plain sight, yet unseen. The man who removed the Broad Street pump handle worked for years against social custom to establish a shocking new theory: that people could be killed by drinking water that looked clear and safe. Reading this gives you a sense of appreciation for how much we owe to people whose names are perhaps no longer as prominent as they should be.

This is a story that will stay with you. It sets the scene like a movie - which is the era it describes: the days when film was new, and Hollywoodland was just starting. In passing, it shows how the social clashes between liberals and religious conservatives played such a prominent role in the development of American culture. Finally, it is a superb detective story, told with tension and involvement. This is a rewarding read.

David Trahair has created an examplary book in "Smoke & Mirrors". It's already put my mind at ease about my ability to retire (I can do it!). David cuts through the fog of confusion an fear created by the financial "planners" who have a vested interest in driving you to use their services. Here's a book for real people with real-life incomes and savings abilities!
