Also, my dad’s reading John. J. Miller’s (of NRO) first novel, “The First Assassin,” and says he can’t put it down: http://bit.ly/5ft2Dw
From a reader in Washington state:
John, your first novel was a great read over my Thanksgiving holiday. I picked it up late in an evening expecting to read a few chapters. I finally put it down about two-thirds through, and finished it first thing the next morning. Couldn’t wait to see how [spoiler deleted]. Finished it in my robe. The First Assassin now rests on my bookcase with my prized Civil War Era books.
A competent thriller and easy read… the description of the city, with its unfinished Capitol and one-third-built Washington Monument, is meticulously drawn.
Finally, The First Assassin is the Ashbrook Center’s Book of the Week.
