Literary Soirée
Third in the authors’ compelling thriller series with Winston Churchill. Set in 1932, when a host of disturbing murders is happening across the United States. 5/5 for a highly original combination of historical fiction, suspense and romance.

Thanks to the authors, First Edition Design Publishing and NetGalley for the review copy. Opinions are mine.

It's been a year since Mattie and Cockran's adventure to find The Spear in the Austrian Alps. Mattie and Cockran seem to have reconciled after their fight last year. Mattie is once again assigned a case, this time in America. Her boss, W.R. Hearst asks her to investigate the mysterious murders of ten Americans. The M.O. of the killer is the same in all cases- the body is found naked and eyes of the victims, missing. What is initially thought to be the work of a serial killer turns out to be some ...more

Last week I finished the 2nd book in the Winston Churchill trilogy, The Parsifal Pursuit, by the father and son McMenamin duo. I really liked that book, but I think I liked this one even better!

Like the others in the trilogy, The Gemini Agenda follows photo journalist, Mattie McGary and her boyfriend, a law professor (and former CIA agent), Bourke Cockran Jr. as they investigate on behalf of Winston Churchill. Set in pre-World War II, they are following Nazi scientists who are said to be conduct

I received this book on April 27th of 2012, and opened it up due to the neatness of the cover, and the book itself, truly an eye catcher, to say the least.
I started paging through it, read the about the authors, and started to read straight from the beginning, (as usual:), and planned on putting this down when my 3rd cup of coffee was done, so I could start my day. Needless to say, that never happened.
Right from page one, this story grabs you and doesn't let you go, not even at the end. You wi

The Gemini Agenda follows investigative reporter Mattie McGary and her boyfriend lawyer Bourke Cockran Jr (who is a former US Army MID operative) as she is investigating a series of murders, that turns out to be a eugenics experiments on American twins. The story runs a gambit of close calls and intrigue from the United States to Pre-Nazi Germany.


The authors set the time frame of the book in the early 1930's at a time when Winston Churchill is out of political power, and investigating troubling

I really don't wanna give too much away about the book because they really are that good. It will satisfy a lot of different people I think. People who just love a good mystery, history lovers, or people that just appreciate a good book. Its information intense, which I love. You have to pay attention and you learn so much. And, like with the last one, Michael and Patrick have taken great pains to ensure the historical integrity of the book. I have read a lot of Historical Fiction books, because ...more

A historical thriller so gripping, so intriguing you’ll have a hard time putting it down.

The McMenamin’s have done it again. Their Winston Churchill thriller series is set against a tumultuous time; pre-WW2. So much of the fiction is set against the background of true history and true characters that it will also challenge you to tell the difference. Hitler was evil and so was what he did. You could easily believe that experiments on twins was something that really happened.

This story revolves around the issue of eugenics, the science of improving the population by controlled breeding for desirable inherited characteristics. This is obviously a sensitive and controversial issue that we don't think about in today's world but was a reality during the time when Hitler ruled under the Nazi party. The historical references throughout the book make it a very interesting read and take you back to a time that many of us only know about from history books or watching docume ...more
