    While I enjoyed this book, it would have been better served not being part of the Margaret Truman series. There were
    too many new characters and not much development behind them. The 2 mainstays were inconsequential to the book. At 750 pages, it was quite long and wordy. If a new one is to come out, I hope that the original characters play a better part in it.

    Total waste of time reading this book

    Worst book I have read by M. Truman. She must be turning over in her grave.

    Not worth reading--someone's political agenda. Only the names are Truman's.

    I was sorely disappointed with this title. Trying to favorably compare any of Margaret Truman's other titles in the series with what Donald Bain did in this one would be a stretch of more than imagination. I saw the PrePub alert by Library Journal (07/12) and can't believe that they even cracked the cover. They said that, "Mac and Annabel unearth an assassination plot." Mac and Annabel are secondary characters at best with new characters doing the action. However, the story line is poorly contrived. I have read some of Bain in the past and did not have bad heart burn for what his stories were worth. But, this was a truly poor showing and I read the whole thing hoping to the last that it might get better. It didn't get better. I saw elsewhere opinions that there was more selling of agendas than story telling. I would have to concur with those opinions.

    This is an excellent book, and one that had decided to read, as some of the earlier Truman books were awkwardly written in places. I lived in DC for 10 years so I was eager to see how she might use the locale. In most the locale won over, but now that Bain has been revealed art the author of most of Truman's books, it seems that he has been freed from her direct influence, and this book is a winner. I am trying to juggle it with my work, and use it as a treat after a hard day. Superb work. Read it!

    Very disappointing. The writing rambles and the story drags. I am 3/4 through the book, and I will finish it, but I am not enjoying the read. I wish I hadn't paid money for the book.

    I have always enjoyed reading this series, but this book was awful. I don't think M. Truman would recognize her characters. And no real sense of Washington D.C.
