In 1925 Percy Harrison Fawcett, a Lieutenant Colonel in the Royal Artillery along with his son Jack and a friend Raleigh Rimmel vanished while on an expedition exploring the forests of Mato Grosso in north-eastern Brazil. What interested Fawcett was the possible solving of a mystery concerning a mythical city called, “Z.” Apparently, in 1753 João da Silva Guimarães wrote that he had discovered the ruins of a City, which he described in detail without providing its exact location. Fawcett believed that this might be his “Z.”

And thrown in for good measure are a few murders that seem to be interlinked.


Author: Omarosa Manigault Newman

Publisher: Gallery Books

ISBN: 978-1-9821-0970-7

Curiosity got the better of me when I picked up a copy of Omarosa Manigault Newman's Unhinged:An Insider's Account of the Trump White House.

My initial thought concerning Omarosa had been was how could an intelligent woman be taken in by the cult of the Trump world? Did she sell herself to the devil in the hope that she could really make a difference helping the African-American community? Was she overestimating her importance? Was she taken in by the glitter of power and wealth? Was she overambitious?
