This is not greatness, it will not change your life. But it is easy listening and an enjoyable way to see the great cities of Europe.
.The book offered a very creative story, an unusual angle (that of rival newspapers seeking headlines), and it provided an education into how a murder investigation was conducted during the gilded age. However, it was long and slow at times. I was a little disappointed in the actual storytelling, but I would listen to another book by this author.
The first and the last part of the book are true to the title; however, the bulk of the book revolves around military maneuvers. Not being a big fan of military history this section moved slow for me--others might enjoy it. The authors have excelled in giving a vivid picture of the events of the assassination and the aftermath, it just takes awhile for them to get to it.
Overall good, but I started to lose interest toward the end. Great twist at the end but then it just kept going and going.
