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!!!<br/><br/>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.<br/><br/>This story is very entertaining read! As always reader "George Guidall" is superb.<br/><br/>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).<br/><br/>Nelson DeMille - The Lions Game .... Great book<br/>Barry Eisler<br/>Daniel Silva <br/>Brad Thor<br/>Brad Meltzer<br/>Alex Berenson<br/>Vince Flynn - Mitch Rapp<br/>Robert Littell - The Company: A Novel of the CIA (good but very long)<br/>Lee Child - Jack Reacher<br/>Adrain Mckinty - Dead I May Well Be <br/>Trevanian - Shibumi<br/>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.
