Description

In 1992, Jeffrey McPoe plummets below the 40-50 feet deep cliff with his car, one heart-pounding event ahead of his disaster. As the investigator himself, he has just become the interrogated guy and the embassy's object of investigation. As the probe tracks his frantic race toward proving his innocence, he is tormented by mad visions and by the knowledge that his time in the embassy is running out, determined to fight back for his vindication. Responding to little more than the primitive quest for justice at any cost, he retreats ever deeper into the cradle of his own government, one which never has eyes glowed bright green in the headlight, and bares no fangs to bite for his case. "The Walking Papers" takes you on a journey of investigation and an avowed loyalty of one of the Consular Investigators of the U.S. Embassy of two and a half decades.

THE AUTHOR'S TRUE-TO-LIFE STORY http://www.createspace.com/4828954 The author provides you with an in depth description of ten of his depictive chapters. He carefully describes the circumstances that lead to taking you to his simple dream, his adventure and fulfillment, even to his downfall and his faith in God, the tragedy that destroyed him, and a vivid description of the character’s bitter challenges and how he managed to confront it. His enviable rise and his tragic fall highlighted the impact of the scene. Suffering a disheartening defeat at his fight for justice, it paved his way to his faith that God is always there to lend him a helping hand. The way I review it, this must be a non-fiction novel. A high-quality best drama-adventure of a novel, and must-read. http://www.createspace.com/4828954 I was indeed scanning for a book like this since I landed my first job in the government. I was interested to read the author’s point of view, since he is a former investigator of the U.S. embassy for about two decades and therefore well-versed of the happenings inside. I was not disappointed. My first observation was that Efren began his story with big picture first, then runs back to the beginning of the story in a sequence, thus, I become curious of what would happened next. Instead of taking the traditional approach in a novel, he focuses on the characters hard work and reliability. Since the book is a perfect description of a man’s role in the consular investigative mission, as a journey person and as a father, the approach of this novel was exquisite. I could really feel the danger in the work field and the heart of the Father through thick and thin, and Efren was fully able to connect how bad it feels when lawfulness doesn’t prevail over poetic justice. Jeffrey Poe’s deportment towards his unexpected destiny was understandable, although probably defiant. Coming from this standpoint, it was absolutely easy to understand Poe’s concerns in some specific instances since the big description had already been depicted. By the time Efren got to the 'problematic event', I had gained a lot of discernment both into the heavenly Father and into man’s experience in the consulate. Efren's break down of Jeffrey Poe’s thoughts was great. I'm planning to go back to those chapters and re-read the whole lines. Overall, it’s a goodread. From a basic standpoint, I think it’s an excellent non-fiction novel written in easy English, good style, easy read, and heartfelt.
