I love books!
This story was a bit different from other Cotton Malone stories as it was set in the US. The historical perspective is the highlight of the story as it is with most Cotton Malone stories, in my opinion. These aren't riverting thrillers where you can't put the book down but they are entertaining. I'd always thought John WilkesBooth might have been part of a conspiracy........
Good story with good interaction among the already-known characters. As always, like the historical ties and their incorporation into the plot.
This is my second Steve Berry book to listen to. I enjoyed the narration by Scott Brick - I don't recall being distracted by his performance, thus it must have enhanced my experience. Mr Berry has plots within plots that keep the mind working overtime, sometimes laboriously. He reaches back into 1835 and brings the Andrew Jackson assassination attempt deep within the story line of this book. I listen to books while taking long trips and I appreciate non-abridged editions. This one kept me entertained my whole trip and then some. The hero/heroin are sometime superhuman but I would not really appreciate anything less. I recommend this book for those that like adventurous tales, especially ones that twist history into current day action.
Loved it. Interesting story, fast paced and good use of political history...but with a lot of liberty taken.
The opposite of bravery is not cowardice but conformity. --Robert Anthony Contentment is, after all, simply refined indolence. --Thomas C.
I would definitely listen to this again. It's a great story and I did enjoy it. A lot of Steve Berry books are great mysteries and fun to follow along with.
Steve Berry books always keep me on the edge of my seat - I find that his stories are very gripping!
A film would be awesome! Definitely.
I like Steve Berry books because he uses a lot of Factoids that add authenticity to the work of fiction. My favorite was the Amber Room, but this is pretty good as well. A little slow at the beginning, but still enjoyable listening. Makes my one hour commute breeze by.
Grandma who spends too much time in her car. The books keep me happy and sane!
Once again, Steve Berry has hit the nail on the head with a great adventure through American history. As always, Cotton and Cassiopeia (do I sense a romance in the making??) use their wits and wisdom to journey through a maze of clues and situations to save the day.
I particularly enjoyed this one since I am a big fan of Jefferson and have visited Monticello several times. The descriptions of the architecture are spot on!
Write quickly, Steve, I'm missing Cotton already!!
I'm an avid listener who is always in search of another good listen. And I'm willing to share my thoughts with an occasional review.
Writer takes you to a point and switches scenes. He does it so often it gets tiresome. Several characters and situations are taking place and he keeps switching scenes just when something is about to happen. So you have to keep track of who is doing what to whom. This continues ad nauseam and makes for a disjointed read.
absolutley boring and confusing, maybe 15 minutes in part 2 is interesting, dont waste valuable credits on this one.
Tough listen. I'm not sure if it was the narrarator or the storyline or both, but everytime I tried to listen to it, my thoughts would wonder off. The characters were confusing and it was hard to imagine who was who and where they were. Way too much detail and a stupid ending for all the storyline. Doesn't make me want to get another book by this author.
