This book delivers a pedestrian spy story, attempting to be grea
This book delivers a pedestrian spy story, attempting to be great by utilizing historical characters. If you want depth of plot and characters, stick with the authors who have made this genre their career. The book became less interesting the further that I got into it. The bland plot is not helped by the attempt to excite with gratuitous chase and sex. Young Jack is just not believable, particularly in his interactions with his father. For Kennedys, Rose, Joe, and Joe Jr. come across as one dimensional and not very interesting. Their appearances seem provided for necessity rather than adding significant elements to the story. Real people are more complex than these spectres. Even the love interest of Jack barely rises into a second dimension.
