The book was okay – but not one of my favorites.

It's been awhile since I've picked up a Brad Meltzer book but a pretty common factor through all of them is you have to keep a score card of his characters. The one thing I didn't really care for was the jumping from past to future but other than that it got my attention and I finished it in record time. Brad does his research and that comes through in his writing.

Meltzer focused more on characters, not the usual fast paced action on every page. Still not bad. The historical references could be similar to DaVinci Code.

It's odd when I can't finish a book but I read more than half and still couldn't figure out the plot. I think the YV show went to Meltzer's head.

Weird book. You need a score card to keep track of all the characters. The story doesn't warrant them. They are useless baggage to the reader.

heard this author on the radio and this sounds well researched and very
interesting mystery
