Being a "child of the 60's" it gives a new twist on the usual government line on the Kennedy Assassination. I loved the book the author did a great job pulling facts together to make it believable. I love books that make you think.

Eminently Satisfying 22 septembre 2012
Par tycobb7878 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
As one who has spent over 44 years in the teaching, and study, of American history, I come to historical fiction with a healthy cynicism. Much like movies "based on a true story", this kind of fiction is most often disappointing and so historically inaccurate I can't finish either. Camelot's Cousin breaks that paradigm. Its flawless interweaving of fact and fiction make it sometimes difficult to distinguish between the two.

The pace of this superb thriller is both breakneck and not unduly laden with detail. Ranging from the 1930s, through the 1960s, and to the present, it does so without missing a beat and, most importantly, without losing the interest of the reader. The locations authentically used in this book include, England, Washington, D. C., New York City, Stowe, Vermont, and Moscow, Russia. In each, the rich descriptions and captivating detail are genuine and filled with the kind of minutiae that make the reader believe not only that the characters are there, but make the reader want to know more.

Without giving away the components of, nor the solution to, the superb mystery revealed in these pages, the story hinges on the discovery of primary source documents from the 1950s Kim Philby scandal that have the potential to shake the foundations of what the world knows of that era and beyond. The protagonist, Templeton Davis, pursues the truth with a zeal one would wish politicians would emulate. He does so to a conclusion that is indeed shocking, satisfying and historically plausible. For this kind of thriller, it can't get any better than that.

The eminent historian, Barbara Tuchman, was once asked how to teach history. Her simple, yet oh so profound, answer was, "Tell stories." The story unfolded in this book will interest, and captivate, historians, thriller aficionados, and people who just plain love a darn good story, from beginning to end. I recommend it highly and enthusiastically.

Reads more like a history book. 12 mars 2013
Par Allen s - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
For a thriller, I wasn't thrilled.
Not that it's poorly written, because it's not, but it reads like a history book, not a novel. I wasn't even sure how many of the characters were real people. I since learned that all were real. The story was fiction, but wrapped in fact.
How the author calls one of the people a Soviet Spy, and the person is a
historical figure, and gets away with it, I'm not sure.

One of our characters digs in his back yard and discovers a leather case
loaded with vintage spy stuff. He takes it to his boss, a talk radio personality, (who I didn't recognize) and the boss launches an investigation into the "stuff". People who talk to him start dying, and they know they've stumbled on something big.
Who is code name "Bunny"? Maybe he's got the ear of the president.

Slow like a history book, interesting like fiction. Names you'll recognize.

Hardly a thriller but nonetheless interesting 29 avril 2013
Par honest Abe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I was disappointed in the pace of the book.I found it to be tedious at times. I also did not feel that the dialogue was natural. It felt a bit stilted. The premise was very interesting. It is a search to find the identity of a Soviet spy in the highest levels of Britain/American diplomatic circles during the Kennedy administration.I did enjoy the historical nature of the fiction, and the author makes an interesting case for his theory. Some of the theories are shocking and that makes the book interesting.Unfortunately the ending is tied in a two page big rose colored bow much too quickly to be satisfying.

Fascinating From Beginning To End 22 juillet 2013
Par Cody L Mummau - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
It's been a while since I picked up a spy thriller book. After beginning this book, I couldn't seem to put it down throughout the day. The way the author weaves fact with fiction had me searching the Internet constantly. I absolutely love this book. Definitely worth your time. Well done!

Thrills petered out 9 avril 2013

Good story with implausible characters!! The Kennedy's were well researched and the entire plot was intriguing until the end. The ending was weak IMO
