    The holidays means Tolkien, just as it has for over two decades for me. When I was younger and had more time, I used to read the entirety of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy over the Christmas season. Just this one to begin 2020.

    Just one page and three short steps.

    1) Open book.

    2) Remember that federal estate tax exemption is still over $11MM.

    3) Close book.

    Tea Leaves.

    Fortune Cookies.

    Between the lines.

    Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind?

    Two stars out of four for this one. Think farfetched along the lines of "Relic" by Preston and Child, but without a compelling character like Pendergast to carry the day.

    This one was a bit better. 3 out of 4.
