Présentation de l'éditeur

When a Dad tries to dig a hole in his Northern Virginia yard to bury the remains of the family pet, he chances upon something buried years before—a mysterious briefcase. Its contents include a journal with cryptic writing. The father turns to his friend—and boss—Templeton Davis, a former Rhodes scholar and popular national radio talk show host, for help figuring out what he’s found.

They soon realize that they are in possession of materials that were hidden more than 60 years earlier by a notorious deep cover agent for the Soviet Union—Kim Philby. And buried with the materials were clues to a great secret—the identity of someone else, the most effective spy in the history of Cold War espionage.

Long a mere footnote in history, the story of this man’s treachery reaches the pinnacles of power and geopolitics. It's a story that begins just before the Second World War breaks out and reaches the depths of the Cold War that followed.

The trail leads to a picturesque town in Vermont, the streets of New York City, the corridors of power in Washington, DC—but most importantly, Oxford, England, where Davis realizes that the beautiful city of spires on the Thames was once also a city of spies.

The Oxford spies may never have reached the level of public notoriety of the Cambridge spies--but clearly the story had never been completely known—or told. And investigating British spies was a very dangerous mine of detail in which to dig, a fact borne out by a couple of suspicious deaths left in the wake of Templeton Davis’s travels.

Davis discovers that at the moment when the world came closest to unparalleled disaster, secrets were being betrayed at the highest levels. He would also come to understand that what he had learned connected to a time of great sorrow for mankind. This is ultimate Kennedy assassination conspiracy story.

At a crucial moment, Templeton Davis quickly develops a bond borne of necessity with a beautiful young woman from Russia—someone with her own secrets. And when what she knows is combined with what the famous broadcaster has learned, the two unlikely heroes find themselves in grave danger, yet poised to rock the world.

Camelot's Cousin is a skillfully crafted example of both espionage fiction and historical fiction. And it will leave the reader wondering if it could have really happened.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Book 30 août 2013
Format:Format Kindle|Achat authentifié par Amazon
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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Eminently Satisfying 22 septembre 2012
Par tycobb7878 - Publié sur Amazon.com

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.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Reads more like a history book. 12 mars 2013
Par Allen s - Publié sur Amazon.com

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.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Hardly a thriller but nonetheless interesting 29 avril 2013
Par the faunster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat authentifié par Amazon
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.

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!

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
