Fact or Fiction:
"Relentless" is the 10th installment of the Gray Man series by Mark Greaney.  I've been a fan of the series since book one, and it has consistently gotten better with each new release.  This volume blends a great story involving private intelligence companies, shadowy government operations, and tons of great action.  What I really like about Greaney is he gets the little details right, which is why he was selected to carry on the Tom Clancy series years ago.  These details are incredible satisfying and more than a few of them brought a smile to my face.  Can't wait for this series to hit Netflix.

Quote of the Week:
"The future is here with us now, if we only knew how to look for it." - August Moe

Recommendation of the Week:
With its high elevation and Canadian border geography, the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont produces the best maple syrup available.  My family taps 32,000 trees each year, but our syrup is only sold wholesale with a small allocation for family and friends each year.  Just up the road, you'll find April's Maple, which produces syrup available for sale online.
