This is the second book in the Culper Ring Trilogy. I would advise reading the first title in the series, The Inner Circle, before this one, to make the story line easier to follow. I liked the book well enough, but I doubt that I will continue with the series.

This could be a good book. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to hear more that the first several tracks on disc one. 4 of the discs are badly damaged in several large areas. I'll let the librarian know when I return it and try to order a playable copy.

This was my first Brad Meltzer book, and I found this story somewhat convoluted and complex to the point of being annoying. The history lesson on the assassinations of President's McKinley and Garfield was interesting, as well as some little known facts about the Lincoln murder. I know he is a popular author, but I am not a raving fan yet.

The reader is too dramatic which distracts from the story. Coulda been a better story without everything being overhyped. Some of the connections are a bit of a stretch. Not the best hat Meltzer has done. Not as good as I had hoped it would be.
