Shall We Tell the President? (Kane and Abel) Reviews
I really enjoyed "Kane and Abel" which was a really cool historical novel. Kane's daughter is the president in this one, but I'm not sure if it's trying to be a historical novel or an action novel, but it doesn't do either well. It's full of endless descriptions of the White House and the FBI, and the story progresses at a snail's pace. When it eventually climaxes I almost miss it as it's such a short piece of non-action, before returning to endless descriptions of the White House again. I did manage to fall asleep several times while reading, so if that's what you need, this could be just up your street.
Another winner for Jeffrey Archer. I recommend this book which is love, thrills and definitely action. As always,well written and different. Definitely a book that cannot be put down.
Excellent written in the only way this only this author can do soExciting built in tension in every page enjoyable throughout
auch wenn es als 3. Serienbuch kaum erkennbar ist, trotzdem ein sehr gutes und bis zum Ende spannendes Buch, ich habe es innerhalb von 2 Tagen gelesen.
Besonders im Vergleich zu den beiden vorangegangenen Büchern eine Enttäuschung - schade. Diesen dritten Teil Muss man wirklich nicht gelesen haben, zumal er inhaltlich kaum etwas mit Florentyna zu tun hat
This started out as Jeffrey Archer's second published novel, quite a few years ago, but has now been updated for more current politics. Try to find the original version, because it is vintage early Archer. In the original version, the novel begins just after Ed Kennedy is sworn in as president after Jimmy Carter. It was a rough time in American history, and Archer weaves the mood of the times into the story. The plot revolves around a junior FBI agent's investigation into an assassination attempt against the new president. He juggles a new relationship with the daughter of a senator who just happens to be a prime suspect in the conspiracy. Archer demonstrates his US political expertise here, despite being an Englishman. This novel goes behind the scenes of Washington DC, though not nearly to the extent his later novel, First Among Equals, does in London's Parliament. My only real complaint with the novel is its lack of major plot twists which I've come to expect from Archer's works. Pretty straight forward story. If you enjoy Archer's works, try to locate a copy of this one too.
The time was March, 1983. The location was at Washington, D.C. And the primary objective was to assassinate President Edward Moore Kennedy. With just one clue to go on from a wounded Greek immigrant, Special Agent Marc Andrew had a week to prevent assassination. Losing two best friends of his, Marc was determined to find murders along side with the director of FBI's cleverness, together they were going to pin down these criminals. Believe it or not, the ending is very surprising written. The best features about this book were dates and time when the events took place, mystery with humor, and an unbelievable ending. Therefore, if you are an X-File fan and enjoy surprise endings, you would not want to miss this book. ("Shall We Really Tell the President" should be the title of sequel series to catch the man behind all this since he escaped successfully from the crime scene) Note: This refers to first edition.
For those of who don't know, Archer has re-released this book as the third and final installment in the Kane and Abel trilogy. While it does have a good and exciting plot, it fails to live up to Kane and Abel and The Prodigal Daughter. If you read this book stand alone, you will enjoy it. However, if you read this book as part of the trilogy, you will come away slightly disappointed. Florentyna is really a minor character in the book and the only really new piece of information that we learn about her is that she defeated a former New York congressman (Jack Kemp?) in 1996 to win election in her own right. I wish that Archer had left "Shall we tell the President" alone and written a completely different book as the third installment.
