LAST WALTZ OF THE TYRANTS : THE PROPHECY

Koteen, Judi Pope (Editor)

Hillsboro, Oregon: Beyond Words Publishing, 1989. Softcover. Good. "...This book exposes the history and plans of the graymen, the secret framilies and power brokers who orchestrate the stock market, own the federal reserve and most of the world's money supply.

The author's main interest, however, is to provide the reader with knowledge...to open our minds and make choices in the light of these predictions, for a future which is already at our door."
