This may be the worst book I every read to the end.The writing is not bad in parts, but there are many obvious plot holes and it goes on way too long. Finally, while I will not spoil the end, the literary device with which Achroyd brings the novel to an end is so hackneyed that it hard to believe that this book is getting such positive reviews.
This book had promise; a review of some of the toughest, most interesting characters in history. Unfortunately, it reads as though written by the protagonists of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. I recommend The Deadliest Men by Paul Kirchner, which is not, alas, available on Audible.
