Editorial Reviews

John Kiesewetter
Mariemont native Rusty McClure points to the blue-and-white striped flag with an eagle blowing in the wind on the Fountain Square flagpole.

"Nobody knows it's there. They never taught us about it," says McClure, a 1968 Mariemont High School graduate.

Anyone who reads McClure's new book will know a lot more about the flag of the Washington-based Society of the Cincinnati, founded in 1783 by Continental Army veterans. McClure's "National Treasure"-like novel.

    This is the best book I have read in 2009

    Cincinnatus is the most original book I have read in 2009. I go through a fiction book in 3 days. I have read everything from James Clavell to Sidney Sheldon and Wilbur Smith to John Grisham and of course Dan Brown. I was disappointed with the Lost Symbol and a librarian friend of mine gave me the Advance Reader copy of Cincinnatus. I normally do not read unknown authors and thought I would give the book a try. After the 1st 2 chapters I was hooked. The pace is so fast that you do not feel that you are reading a book. I finished the book in 3 days. The plot is original as no one has combined different elements like the authors have. The best part is the ending as I could not figure out why the secret society was fixing golf tournaments. I highly recommend this book.

    Murder, espionage, intrigue, and adventure (...and several more murders.)

    I imagine it's a task for writers to keep readers involved and engaged in a book that's 500 pages long, but author Rusty McClure does it with ease in his new book Cincinnatus. What you think might be a simple murder mystery on a golf course turns into a many-leveled tale of espionage, intrigue, and adventure (and several more murders.)

    If you're a reader who enjoyed "The DaVinci Code" or a fan of "The Bourne Identity" (with a few James Bond moments thrown in for good measure) -- then you will enjoy "Cincinnatus" by Rusty McClure.

    Oh, and I fully expect a movie adaption within the next couple years, so I am going on record right now with my vote for Thandie Newton to play "Espy."

    Great for Cincinnati people

    Especially enjoyable for residents of mighty Cincinnati. Many people, family members of Cincinnati resident (me), are unaware of the background to the city name. This book can put you in the loop and also give you a great story along with the history. Very enjoyable for all.

    A True Original

    A once-promising golfer, who became a caddy because of a bum shoulder and too much booze, stumbled on a meeting thst resulted in a pro golfer's murder. After being framed for the murder he found himself as part of an investigation of the murder and something bigger. I thought this book would be an antiquities thriller like The Lost Symbol, but the antiquities angle was only part of the story. Like The Lost Symbol, the historical references were important to the story and, I believe, done much better. I enjoyed the fast pace, the characters and the story itself. I highly recommend it.

    Buckle Your Seat Belt, You're in for a Lively Jaunt

    The authors help the readers with "up to the minute" date, place and time stamps so that we can keep up with the action in this fast-paced "who are these guys?" thriller.
