Why is this Book 3?

I really enjoyed this book (it was better than Book 2) but I’m having a hard time seeing it as Book 3 of a trilogy.

It’s a story of a rookie FBI agent who discovers a plot to assassinate the president and in a race against time he must uncover who is behind it and stop the plot. The president just happens to be Florentyna Kane and therefore this is supposed to be seen as another instalment in the Kane and Abel series? That’s a weak tether – you could have plunked any name in there and there would have been zero impact in the plot of this book. It’s really just a cameo appearance by a character of the series.

It’s a good book in it’s own right, if the idea was to link it to the series in order to increase the amount of likely readers, it was not necessary. I’ve read enough Jeffery Archer books that I pick them up because he is the author, not necessarily because it’s more of the same story.

Recorded in 2013, but WRITTEN in 1977

It's not a terrible book, but not great. But I spent a long time at the top of the book trying to understand why FBI agents always carried 20 quarters for pay phones. And no one seemed to include Reagan as part of Presidential assasination history.

God, things have really changed since 1977. And much of the book feels dated because of it. Even the plot against the President is dated.

Also, I wish someone was a little more careful with details of the recording. Senator Birch Bayh name was pronounced "Bye" not "Bay."
