The author writes in a clear, thorough manner. For facts and details of Nixon's life, however, he relies heavily on friends and family members of President Nixon, which fact lends the story a definite slant in favor of Nixon's poor behavior (frequent ...more

I admired the author's ability to devise a complicated plot; I could see her shuffling round a high pile of index cards, making certain to keep the story consistent throughout. The first half of the book held promise as an above average whodunit. The ...more

“When we were children, we used to think that when we were grown-up we would no longer be vulnerable. But to grow up is to accept vulnerability... To be alive is to be vulnerable.”

John Wyndham
“Half the political intelligentsia who talk to a working audience don’t get the value of their stuff across—not so much because they’re over their audience’s heads, as because half the chaps are listening to the voice and not to the words, so they knock a big discount off what they do hear because it’s all a bit fancy, and not like ordinary, normal talk.”
John Wyndham, The Day of the Triffids
