[Download] ➺ The OSSI Model - The Gannon Transcripts By Kent Stern – Multi-channel.co

Totally opposite from what I was expecting In a very good way When I heard he was releasing another book, I immediately called and asked for an early copy in return for a review He did warn me There are no puffy clouds and elaborate descriptions that set the scene It s what s happening and what happened Google what you don t know Aptly forewarned, I dove in with my eyes open, still expecting a long technical drama As I swiped passed the tenth page Kindle I immediately found that I was knee deep into a scene that had nothing to do with money, banking or computers Moreover, I was getting in deeper with each press of my eBook I will give you what I think is the good and bad First, his work is completely different from other books I have read on Kindle I say that for both content and format First the format It is written as a script and formatted for the Kindle reader As a script, he has given us only two types of paragraphs Action and dialog There is very little to no padding and very little inner voice Therefore, with than 304,000 words, the author must and in this case does, use a compelling story, a very fast timeline and strong direct dialog to keep our attention For me, it worked perfectly I found that without all of the fluff and dramatic wording, I was able to better visualize the story, which made it captivating Some readers may prefer the standard POV formats and that would be a personal choice Currently, it is only on Kindle, so if you are not a digital reader or prefer short stories, you will need to pass on this one.The story The story begins in the mid 1980 s during the height of the Caribbean drug wars It quickly flashes forward twenty years to the Caribbean island of Saba, where Peter Gannon the protagonist , Kalika, Rodolfo and Marina have gathered to transcribe some of Rodolfo s memoirs From there, it flashes back to the mid 1980 s and continues with Peter finishing his enlistment in the US Coast Guard This is where the majority of the characters are introduced and the plot is set As the cover suggests, many of the characters are of Indian descent, with a full cast of Dominican, Pakistani, Israeli, English and Trinidadians to keep you fully awake One minus in this area is that they do move around from place to place and time does pass quickly You will need to pay attention The last third of the story comes back to our current time mid 2000 s This is where the author has done his best work to keep us on the edge and moving forward A few years ago, I had an opportunity to hear the author lecture on data security in New York I was worried that he would follow his roots and go far too deep into technical jargon This is not the case There are times where they do explain the projects, but it is necessary to the overall storyline If you are looking for a deep dive into banking, money laundering or computers from an expert on the subject, this may or may not be for you This is a fast paced adventure, which spans twenty years and goes from Antigua to Hyderabad and everywhere in between Overall, it was an excellent read and completely opposite to what I was expecting from the author As an educated woman, I started out hating Peter and loving Kali and I ended up loving Peter, wanting to yell at Kali and hating Layla and Ana So yes, I am looking forward to the next installment My only question to Mr Stern is How much is true The OSSI Model The Unification Agreement For Banking Reconciliation And Security UARS Has Been Signed Now, Seven Families Will Fight For Control Of The New Data Driven Financial Infrastructure For The First Time Ever, Live The Untold Story Behind The People Whose Job It Is To Move Money, Weapons And Gold Through The International MarketsHow Will They Build And Secure A System

Ll Get A Moment In Time Glimpse Into The Influential Families And Banking Empires That Keep Money, Weapons And Power Flowing Between Sovereign Nations And The Black Markets They ServeDuring The Mid S, Proceeds From The Latin American Drug Trade And Soviet Afghan War Flowed Into These Banks At A Rate Of Over Six Hundred Million Dollars Per Month And With Little Global Regulation, The Families Grew In Wealth And Political Power, Quickly Adding Billions In Cash And Real Estate To Their Already Vast PortfoliosBy The Late S, These Families Were Faced With A Digital Landscape That Would Change Everything The Data Revolution Was Taking Hold And The Old Ways Would No Longer Keep Them In Power Or Safe This Work Has Been Published From A Recorded Audio Book Narrative As Told By K Stern The Kindle E Book Follows The Original Script Format This is my first time reading this type of book and I am hooked You can tell the author has been doing this for a while He has a very minimalist writing style which keeps the action going without the need for filler Great character and story arcs Two steps up from the ordinary canned thrillers, highly recommended. It s written as a script and it is quite long It took me three weeks to finish, but it was worth every minute I felt like I was watching a film Very original Very original, excellent. Fast, always changing, unpredictable and highly recommended I have collected the author s technical work for years and with tongue in cheek, it s great to see him finally move into the 21st century The printed books have caused a noticeable slump in my bookshelf and the new Kindle format is perfect for this type of reading I have come to expect a high level of simplicity in his writing and an equal and opposite complexity in the meaning behind the words For those of you that are new to his work, The OSSI Model is an excellent read on its own If you are interested in the meaning behind the words, I can tell you from his past work, everything is related to a number or the number of something repetitive within the script From that number, a question is posed Out of the five questions I have taken on, I have solved only one.Overall, I enjoyed the read immensely It is fast, always changing, unpredictable and highly recommended. It s a script, so the you read, the faster you go, the faster you go, the harder it is to put down There s so much going on Now that I have finished, I think the author has either hidden one of his training manuals or his memoirs between the lines I don t believe I am one to understand how to unravel what is hidden, but it was three weeks of reading pleasure I do recommend it, very enjoyable.
