I have mixed feelings about this book. It was an action-filled page turner that I did not want to put down. It kind of reminded me of Indiana Jones in a way - mostly reality based, but with some mystical stuff added in that wouldn't actually happen in the real world. Then you had the whole story about the Kennedy assassination and the death of Marilyn Monroe thrown in there. It was an interesting way to tell that story I suppose, but a little fantastical for my taste.

I may have given this book four stars but for one thing: it is riddled with errors. There are typos, spelling errors, grammatical errors. I have never read a book with so many errors and it just irks me to no end when a published book has so many mistakes. I mean, don't they have editors? Here are some examples:

I don't know the page number, but at one point a BMW was spelled BWM.

Page 292: "You had pass through them first, before you could take yourself and your bags through security, [...]"

Page 371: "The tunnel was a little bigger than the laundry cute."

And there are many more. Not acceptable for a published work.
