I so rarely rate a novel with 5 stars, but this novel made it an easy decision. The plot is a fictionalized version of the Cuban missile crisis, with the protagonist a 19 year old African American college student (Margo) who is instrumental in the back channel negotiations. I usually get bored with spy thrillers, but the characters in this made it come alive. I liked the historical backdrop, too. I loved this book from start to end. The writing is very good, too. I will definitely check out other books by Stephen Carter. This is a quality novel and a compelling thriller. It was both authentic and fun.

This is an ambitious thriller book set during the Cuban missile crisis. A real page turner, good suspense too many chapters and twists and turns. Carter has written an over complicated story and the heart of the book is nice but just not credible. A better reader with more accent and language skills would have helped. Kennedy’s voice can easily be imitated but this reader misses entirely.
