Publisher's Summary

In 1945, a ruthless female assassin attempts to take down the ultimate target: Franklin Delano Roosevelt. And an unlikely hero, Professor Mikhal Lammeck, may be the only one who can stop her. David L. Robbins is a New York Times best-selling author and a writer widely acknowledged for his ability to pen startlingly accurate alternate-history fiction. By positing the assassination of a U.S. president, this may be the acclaimed author's most ambitious novel yet.

Very Good Listen

Any additional comments?

Very Good read!!!

This is an under-rated book caused by the first reviewer who went to the extreme and gave it a one star instead of at worst a three star... The rating unjustly skewed the books ranking downward.

This story is very entertaining read! As always reader "George Guidall" is superb.

Below are more action thrillers that are "espionage/military/assassin" genre that you may also like if you like this book. (The list of authors is not rank in order of my favorite reads).

Nelson DeMille - The Lions Game .... Great book
Barry Eisler
Daniel Silva
Brad Thor
Brad Meltzer
Alex Berenson
Vince Flynn - Mitch Rapp
Robert Littell - The Company: A Novel of the CIA (good but very long)
Lee Child - Jack Reacher
Adrain Mckinty - Dead I May Well Be
Trevanian - Shibumi
Bernard Cornwell "Sharpe’s Tiger" (Richard Sharpe series) /Historical Fiction

Thoroughly engaging. I listen while I drive and on several occasions, drove out of my way and below the speed limit, even waiting in parking lots to finish chapters. I thought the story was well written and historically interesting.
