    Story
    "Recorded in 2013, but WRITTEN in 1977"

    It's not a terrible book, but not great. But I spent a long time at the top of the book trying to understand why FBI agents always carried 20 quarters for pay phones. And no one seemed to include Reagan as part of Presidential assasination history.

    God, things have really changed since 1977. And much of the book feels dated because of it. Even the plot against the President is dated.

    Also, I wish someone was a little more careful with details of the recording. Senator Birch Bayh name was pronounced "Bye" not "Bay."

    Story
    "Why is this Book 3?"

    I really enjoyed this book (it was better than Book 2) but I’m having a hard time seeing it as Book 3 of a trilogy.

    It’s a story of a rookie FBI agent who discovers a plot to assassinate the president and in a race against time he must uncover who is behind it and stop the plot. The president just happens to be Florentyna Kane and therefore this is supposed to be seen as another instalment in the Kane and Abel series? That’s a weak tether – you could have plunked any name in there and there would have been zero impact in the plot of this book. It’s really just a cameo appearance by a character of the series.

    It’s a good book in it’s own right, if the idea was to link it to the series in order to increase the amount of likely readers, it was not necessary. I’ve read enough Jeffery Archer books that I pick them up because he is the author, not necessarily because it’s more of the same story.

    Story
    "Not Archer's best;and NOT a Kane & Able, Book 3!!!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Absolutely--I'd change the title which is misleading--this is NOT a Kane & Able Book3--any fans of Archer's knows the 2 Kane & Able books and this is not a continuation or remotely related. Was this just a cheap ploy to gain readership? Shame on you. I'd change the reader--this is not a book to be read by a woman--it sounds like a kids fairytale and you can't take the plot seriously. She performed well but this book should be read by a man--sorry--not a chauvinist, but it's a fact.


    If you’ve listened to books by Jeffrey Archer before, how does this one compare?

    I've read and listened to all of his books--this would be on the low end


    What didn’t you like about Lorelei King’s performance?

    She performed well but the type of book she should be reading. Her impressions of males were terrible. If you are going to have a woman read this type of book, then have them just read it straight out and not try to imitate a deeper male voice.


    Was Shall We Tell the President? worth the listening time?

    It is if you are on a long drive and nothing else to do. Actually the story line was good, but Archer has fallen into the recent trend of building in stupidity on the part of the heros to allow them extra danger and adventure. My God, what kind of FBI agent keeps saying to himself I've seen that guy in the rear view mirror without realizing he's being tailed! Or what kind of FBI agents are stupid enough to recognize someone different tailing the hero, besides themselves on a top secret assignment without checking it out--give me a break.Again, I'm a big fan of Jeffery Archer--at least the way he used to write books.
