I think I should stop trying alternate history novels. I always go into them thinking “ooo, this will be fun,” and always end up going “oh, come ON,” even if the writing itself is fine.

K is for Killing is a spy novel set in an alternate version of the 1940s, wherein Charles Lindbergh was elected instead of Roosevelt, the KKK took over and allied itself with Nazi Germany. “John Ridgeworth” is a half-American/half-British secret agent sent in to cause havoc.
