No one can, or should, forget the devastating tragedy that killed and maimed so many innocent men women and children in the Philippines.
However, the calamity has also served to make the world even more aware of the crippling corruption that is endemic in EVERY aspect of life in these poor islands. As a sympathetic world pours money into the islands in an effort to help, news emerges that much of this money is STOLEN, and supplies are left to rot by local officials who care only for themselves, and by evil criminal fakes charities and websites who prey on the sympathy of the international community while pocketing funds meant for the needy who have lost their families and their homes.
A CATALOG OF THEFT AND GREED.
Throughout the years, so many Philippine Presidents and politicians have stolen money brazenly from the people that I have lost count. This year alone there have been a long list of scams and missing millions. The last two Presidents have both ended up in jail- together with many of their co-conspirators, and there are hundreds more to come if there is any justice in this world. And, if there IS any justice in this world it does not seem to be in the long suffering Philippines.
IF YOU WANT TO KNOW the depths that politicians in the Philippines will stoop too, just read DEADLY ELECTION - it shows you the depths of depravity, lust and intrigue that the highest in the land will stoop to in the pursuit of raw ambition and greed - take a look - it will open your eyes -
just click on the cover for more details.

Meet the author
Arthur Crandon is a lawyer, the boring office kind, not the exciting (and much better paid) courtroom type. He worked as a solicitor for a while before embarking on an interesting life overseas. He has spent most of his time in recent years in South East Asia, more recently in Hong Kong. Before that, Arthur lived and worked in the Philippine Islands.
He loves to fish, and play the piano – but spends most of his time writing, eating, drinking and sleeping
– usually, but not always, in that order.
His first book, Deadly Election, draws on his strange imagination and his
experiences, together with those of others, in a land that, beneath a veneer of civilisation, operates like the Wild West and is very
dangerous to innocent and gullible foreigners.
