|Review:||After reading my second Meltzer novel, I have to say that I like him as an author. I just don't love him. For instance...in this nearly-600 page work, the pace quickens then slows then quickens then slows, and then I forget what I've already read and go back and forth and, well...you get the point. Read carefully - there is a lot jam packed into these pages and you can easily miss a connecting detail if you aren't paying scrupulous attention. I like the subject matter - political setting, a hint of Masonic intrigue - nice. It's a story that seems to get told time and again these days, but Meltzer puts his own twist on it, which is great. Overall, an interesting read, but shy away if you're look for a light, fun time.|
