I was hoping to be surprised by an author I've never read before. The first few chapters actually held some promise, but as the book progressed the sickly plot was made weaker by the shallow, sadly stated stereotypical characters.
Briefly, the book is a jewish Da Vinci Code with a touch of 1940's nazism taking place during the 1970's complete with "Bohemians" and groovy hippies. After the first half of the book I kept hoping the end was near, but alas, it kept going.
I was equally unimpressed with the narrator, although I must admit he didn't have much to work with.
Save your book credits and your money for something/anything else but this. It was so horrendous I was forced to write my first review.
After enjoying several of the author's other books I was looking forward to this series. I was surprised the sample audio only consisted of the author's introduction - now I know why. The book is boring, difficult to follow, and the narration makes it even worse. After 8 years I've finally found the one book not worth a single credit. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find a single positive thing to say about this book.
If you're looking for an interesting book of historical fiction, try New York: The Novel or Matterhorn.
