I was very hesitant to pick up fiction at a time when I had an abundance of other hard-facts Kennedy books to sate my voracious reading appetite, but Poyer skillfully created plausability and excitement with a premise that is at first questionable and unintriguing. Excellent read, really brings the characters to life - it's a challenging, thought-provoking book that gives history a new depth. Definitely recommend it.
