This is a remarkable book in that readers either dearly love it or savagely hate it. There’s almost no middle ground among thousands of commentators. Newsman O’Reilly garbles some facts, but he also gives us a great dramatic reading. The book resonates like a novel, an adventure story. There are very few political bones to pick here; most of the facts are well understood, though there are conspiracy theories that pop up among the populace once in a while. Quite a few details unknown to the average history student are revealed, many of them showing the states of mind and thoughts of the victims and conspirators. Pacing is everything; O’Reilly is good at it. D.R.W. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2011]
