Welcome to the fifth stop on the book tour.

From The First Assassin: “Mazorca had seen impressive mansions before, and the White House was not one of them. Compared to several that he knew, it was a modest country house–a big box of a building whose plain shape was broken only by a columned portico jutting from the structure’s north side. After a moment, Mazorca realized it had the architectural effect of making the two-story house appear much smaller than it really was. The president’s home may not have looked magnificent, but it certainly was large.”
