True crime novel from the author of THE FALCON & THE SNOWMAN.
One more in a long tradition. It was fun while it lasted, not what you would call a genre game changer and Robert Lindsey is a good writer. For those who seek the True Crime category this book will fill the bill (is that one a valid expression? Sounded good!). Some books are better than others and the very best are long in between. After having read over the years probably thousands of True Crime books I have spoiled myself silly, and now I compare all books to the ones I considered the best of the best. This one, slightly above average, earns 3.5 Stars!
