How will Olivia and Ivan reconcile what they begin to learn about their father with the life they are leading? This was a face paced book, with some great characters. I am sad to see the series end. Was this review helpful? Flag as inappropriate. Best of the series!
Great ending to it all.
Hidden Agenda (Southern Crimes Book #3)
Age: This one blew my expectations! I enjoyed the first two in the series, but this one was just fantastic. Probably in part because we know and like the characters as this is the third in a trilogy, but I think Lisa Harris is improving as a suspense writer by leaps and bounds. This one for me was right up there with my two favourites in the genre, Irene Hannon and Lynette Eason.
- Medial Representations: Mathematics, Algorithms and Applications (Computational Imaging and Vision)?
- Clinical manual of cultural psychiatry.
- Old Boy, Volume 4.
- Uganda: the hidden agenda behind "Kony " video, by F. William Engdahl.
I say it blew my expectations because after reading the write up I was somewhat ho hum about the plot premise. It could have been very contrived and cheesy but it worked really well in this case and I had no troubles believing the story and getting lost in it. Loved it, great job, can't recommend it enough and I don't want to spoil anything so I'll just say I'm looking forward to whatever this author comes out with next. Available at your favourite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

This nonstop chase from Christy Award-winning Lisa Harris will leave you breathless. This is the third book in the Southern Crimes series and I think it is Ms. Harris best. At the end of the last book Michael was dead now he is not. No, he is not a zombie, he was only reported as dead. However it would have been better for him to have stayed dead because now everyone is gunning for him especially Olivias father who is the head bad guy.
Murder, hit and runs, corrupt officials, greed, kidnapping, drugs and drug lords are just some of the ingredients in this high-octane adventure. With Hidden Agenda Ms. Harris has given us a thriller that becomes more and more exciting and nerve wracking until you flip the last page and let out a contented sigh of relief.
This is a fun read, it is a fast read, however I do not recommend starting this book late at night because it will cost you sleep as you will not want to put it down. Harris is an excellent writer and knows how to twist your nerve endings as she tightens the suspense. The WB has often lent money to the authorities in countries despite the dismal quality of their economic policies and a great deal of corruption: Indonesia and Zaire are two cases in point.
Throughout this book Dr. He delves deep into the strategies and tactics the Bank uses to lure poor nations by creating an illusion of hope of prosperity and well being. If allure fails, the Bank brandishes threats to impose curbs or cut-off development assistance unless the particular government of the country in the South accepts the economic and political strictures of the North.
Hidden Agenda (Southern Crimes, Book 3) by Lisa Harris ~ Romantic Suspense Review
Eric provides a penetrating analysis of how debts reproduce poverty and dehumanization - a situation that runs counter to common belief. Eric analyses the evolution of the debt of the Southern countries with the support of great details of various cases. He also exposes the dominant neo-liberal economic axiom that holds that development of the South has been delayed due to insufficient domestic capital. This formulation actually means that countries wishing to accelerate economic growth must first appeal to external aid, then attract foreign investments and thirdly, increase exports in order to procure the hard currencies necessary for the purchase of foreign goods that facilitate further growth.
To ensure the return of the loan - not so much the capital borrowed but the regular payment of interest Interest An amount paid in remuneration of an investment or received by a lender. Interest is calculated on the amount of the capital invested or borrowed, the duration of the operation and the rate that has been set. Thus they impose macro economic reforms on to the borrower countries leading to strict structural adjustment Structural Adjustment Economic policies imposed by the IMF in exchange of new loans or the rescheduling of old loans.
Structural Adjustments policies were enforced in the early to qualify countries for new loans or for debt rescheduling by the IMF and the World Bank.
The requested kind of adjustment aims at ensuring that the country can again service its external debt. These SAPs have not only substantially contributed to higher and higher levels of indebtedness in the affected countries ; they have simultaneously led to higher prices because of a high VAT rate and of the free market prices and to a dramatic fall in the income of local populations as a consequence of rising unemployment and of the dismantling of public services, among other factors.
The prescription includes measures like devaluation Devaluation A lowering of the exchange rate of one currency as regards others. The conditions, whether they carry the name Structural Adjustment Programme or Poverty Reduction Strategy, all push the debtor country in one direction. The debtor country has to accept an insertion in the world economic system and world markets in a particular manner. This stability and adjustment only inserts the debtor country in the new world economic order and places it firmly of course, as a subsidiary entity in the system of new international division of labour.
The compulsion to liberalise and open up the economy - sector after sector - to the global capital, rapidly changes the economic structure of the country - the manufacturing process is trans-nationalised, fragmented and dispersed across the country. It becomes extremely capital-intensive and constantly replaces labour. Through the imposition of export led growth, financial and trade liberalization, fiscal austerity, privatization and deregulation the third world economies remain sources of cheap raw materials and pools of cheap labour to serve the interests of the industrialized countries.
Legitimation for the neo-liberal economic model was provided by the hidden agenda of the Washington Consensus - intensifying the productivist approach. It aims both at maintaining the US global leadership and at freeing capitalism of the shackles it had to accept in the wake of WWII. These limitations resulted from powerful social mobilizations in both countries of the North and of the South, from nascent emancipation movements in the colonies, and from attempts at rejecting capitalism.
In most cases the debt was contracted by non democratic governments that were often supported by industrialized countries. The borrowed money was used to finance repressive if not genocidal policies as in Rwanda in and never helped the people of the indebted countries. The embezzlement of public funds created through the loasns was in full knowledge of public and private lenders in industrialized countries. Most of the economic policy is decided outside the country concerned.
Now there is no valid reason why IMF and World Bank should interfere in every economic decision a debtor country makes. Debt enables the creditors to exercise exorbitant power over the indebted countries. It has enabled the dominant classes in the North to overcome the rest of the world.
It is a modern form of slavery. The cancellation of Third World debt remains economic, moral and political imperatives and it is only a matter of justice that the cancellation should be accompanied by freezing the fortunes stolen and often placed abroad by dictatorships and corrupt regimes, so that they can be returned to the local populations and contribute to their development.
It is also necessary to abolish a system that has the arrogance to impose an unjust economic model on the whole planet. They have to adapt and suffer. Thus, countries in the periphery have repaid eight times the amount they owed, only to find themselves four times more indebted.
