    From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, there have been more than two dozen assassination attempts on the President of the United States. Four have been successful. But now, Beecher White - the hero of the number one New York Times best seller The Inner Circle - discovers a killer in Washington, D.C. who's meticulously re-creating the crimes of these four men. Historians have branded them as four lone wolves. But what if they were wrong?

    Would you try another book from Brad Meltzer and/or Scott Brick?

    I am normally a big Brad Meltzer fan, but this book was horrible. Tried twice to get through it, even went back and read the first book in the story, but no help. The story was just horrible.


    Has The Fifth Assassin turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story was absolutely horrible. I kept listening in the hope that I would find the missing plot info, but it never came. This is the last Blackwood book for me. Bring back Mark Greaney!!

    Story
    (19677)

    After losing his leg to a land mine in Afghanistan, Cormoran Strike is barely scraping by as a private investigator. Then John Bristow walks through his door with an amazing story: his sister, the legendary supermodel Lula Landry, famously fell to her death a few months earlier. The police ruled it a suicide, but John refuses to believe that. The case plunges Strike into the world of multimillionaire beauties, rock-star boyfriends, and desperate designers, and it introduces him to every variety of pleasure, enticement, seduction, and delusion known to man.

    Tracey says: "Unbelievable debut mystery set in London"
    "Disappointed."

    Considering the author, I expected much more excitement. This book was just downright boring. Unless you want a slow romantic mystery, I'd skip this one.

    Story
    What would have made The Fixer better?

    The story is completely absurd. And the one time it almost got a little better, it went right off the deep end again. In the years and years I have been an audible member and the hundreds of books I have downloaded, this is one of the top three worst. just a stupid premise and bad story. Very disappointing from an author i really liked.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    It'll be a while before its another Joseph Finder. very disappointed.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Steven Kearney?

    Sure, he as fine. Not his fault the story was absurd.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger. A waste of my time, until I finally moved on. One of the handful books I haven't finished
