Brad Meltzer has the idea of a quick and fun read down pat. If you like suspense thrillers, thrown in with a religious backdrop, and oh not to mention the Superman comic book, then you will fly (no pun intended) through this and enjoy every moment of it. Highly recommend if you like a lighter version of The DaVinci Code -- very entertaining and if you are traveling for work or pleasure, this is a fun book to while away the time.

Excellent book, not like the typical Meltzer book, not full of the legal and corporate drama, more like Julia Navaro. A good gripping historical religious story line with a comic book twist, certainly an original story. Definitely worth waiting on the wish list.

It took me a while to get into this book but I stayed with it. I began to have a lot of questions - but no answers and gradually the answers came; I got hooked and had to keep going until the end - which left me with more questions. This is a story of finding the mark of Cain and Superman, but also it's about relationships and forgiveness. After saying all that, it is a good read.

While the author notes it was a story he wanted to tell for quite some time, I wasn't as pleased with this book as his others. If you are a fan of the legal/financial thrillers of Brad Meltzer's past, this is going to be a significant change from what you are accustomed from him. It's an interesting story, just different and going into that is needed, I think, to avoid disappointment.

I thought this was one of the best of Meltzer's books. Fast-paced, intriguing, with engaging characters... not to be missed!

Very well written, I enjoyed the numerous sub-plots and repeats of scenes from another charactor's prospective. Also appreciated the strong ties to actual historical facts. Will be keeping my copy for future use.
