Interesting read. The plot divides into two mirroring veins that intertwine real historical persons with fictional characters. Entertaining, but all in all not quite believable, especially toward the end. Oddly enough, I can see this being a better movie than the book that it is.

Another great mystery by this author. I have to see if she's written others! I really enjoy the realistic portrayal of people's various spiritual outlooks on life without being proselytizing.

Frighteningly realistic! A good lesson in political moderation.
