one of the most gripping, time accurate thrillers- original and populated with characters on immediately feels a connection to. The whole McCarthy era has been used as a background for many books- and it was a facinating time- but in Red Chaser- it takes on a whole new dimension- one I have never found more intriquing. VERY VERY HIGHLY RECCOMENDED FOR THOSE WHOLOVE THRILLERS AS WELL AS HISTORICAL NOVELS (NOT TO MENTION BASEBALL!!) SIMPLY- A 5 STAR READ!!
