THE FIFTH ASSASSIN by Brad Meltzer (2013) BOOK REVIEW

leave a comment »

This was not easy to read.   The author kept going back 18 years during the story to a different time related to this story.   The author also tries to weave in the four assassinations of U. S. Presidents-Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, and Kennedy.   Will there be a 5th assassination.   YOU have to read the book.   There is little doubt with the incomplete ending of this book the author will write another book .   There are a good number of characters to keep track of.   Even though this novel is fiction the author does put in some historical facts.
MY HUMBLE RATING:  9 out of 10
The Fifth Assassin.JPEG-0412d
BELOW is quoted from Amazon.com
“From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, there have been more than two dozen assassination attempts on the President of the United States.
Four have been successful.
But now, Beecher White–the hero of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Inner Circle–discovers a killer in Washington, D.C., who’s meticulously re-creating the crimes of these four men. Historians have branded them as four lone wolves. But what if they were wrong?
Beecher is about to discover the truth: that during the course of a hundred years, all four assassins were secretly working together. What was their purpose? For whom do they really work? And why are they planning to kill the current President?
Beecher’s about to find out. And most terrifyingly, he’s about to come face-to-face with the fifth assassin.”  Taken from Amazon.com
