Some good, some stupid

First let me say that the entire underlying plot of the book is intriguing. The American greed is a likely candidate as any for bringing down the county. However, using England to do so was a rather low blow.
Where the book starts to crumble is during one of the ridiculously numerous shoot-outs and assassination attempts. And then to hear that the prior book in the series contains the same thing ... too much of a stupid thing is still stupid. I get it that the author want

My thoughts... This is without a doubt a five star read!! Once again Clawson does not disappoint... in his second novel of amateur sleuthing with Erika Carr and Parker Chase they find themselves in the midst of danger when Erika receives 300 year-old documents authored by the legendary Paul Revere. This is the second book by author Andrew Clawson. He brings twice the adventure and historical intrigue with the revolutionary espionage that comes to light through Parker and Erika's investigation of ...more

Movie material

Very good story! I kept thinking of the movie National Treasure as I was reading. And thank you Andrew Clawson for writing a book without using any overt foul language....not ONE F bomb!

This was a very interesting mixture of thriller and historical fiction. I read it in a very short time because it held my interest and caused me to come back to it at every opportunity. Set in New England the author does a very nice job of making his locations clear and memorable and the premise is based on a very interesting idea about history and economics. I highly recommend this book.

Another perfect Parker Chase/Erica Carr novel and I love the treasure story line and historical information. I picture Parker being like Nicholas Cage in National Treasure. This is book 2 and it does not disappoint.

I really enjoyed this book. It’s very fast paced and keeps you turning the pages. I love how the author connect past to present.

Another good outing

I like the history angle juxtaposed with a modern day crime.Chase and Dr. Erica have nine lives . Can't wait to read the next in the series.

Why I Read: This book has been on my radar for quite some time. I picked it off one of those book deal newsletters and hadn’t read it in months. But now that winter is here and time is nothing if not free, it was the perfect time to indulge.

Review: If there’s something I love more than anything in a pulp fiction, it’s conspiracy. ‚The Crown’s Vengeance‘ delivers that by the bucketload. I’ve never read the first book in the series which follows the two characters, Erika and Parker, on yet another

I would raet this book somewhere 3.5. I liked the style, it's very fast-paced, which I like. It reads and feels like a Hollywood blockbuster - the hero, the villain. I have a few remarks such as silly spelling mistakes which even I whom native language is not English noticed and some issue at the end. Like how did Nick learn where Chase and Carr were or what happened with Nigel Sterling? Yet the book kept me hooked. The story plot is all about over a two hundred years old conspiracy secret dated ...more

I wanted to like this book more than I really did. I just had a hard time believing that a handful of elite Brits have carried a 230 year grudge against the US in the name of King George III, for winning the war. Did like the lecture at the end of how the US is a decadent country, but it seemed strange coming from the English who aren't exactly something to write home about.

The historical conspiracy was rather intriguing, though I had hoped the conspiracy was going to be the reveal that Alexande

Totally enlightening

What better way to delve into the intricacies of big banking than by storytelling ! Mr. Clawsen has done this service admirably. Unraveling a little of this information has led me to want to investigate the economics of banking and the stock exchange as it affects our country and the world. Being informed is the responsibility of each citizen. How else can we keep an eye on the 'big guy's handling our finances and some politicians who would like to 'handle' it as well !? Look

Another winner

I guess I am a sucker for historical fiction. The plots are always plausible and filled with interesting historical trivia about the historical figure who is central to the case. I enjoyed this one as much as the his first book and I look forward to reading book 3.
The first book's main historical figure was George Washington. This one cantered around Paul Revere. The next one will revolve around Alexander Hamilton.
A week's worth of adrenaline with some to spare!

Political thriller involving a 200 year old plot to take revenge on England's former American colonies, whom King George blamed for the downfall of the British empire. Chase and Carr dodge death by assassin while uncovering a conspiracy to destroy the U.S. economy. Can they overcome overwhelming odds in time to prevent another depression and live to see the outcome?

Excellent! He is spot on st the end when he (Clawson) warns that economies are the hearts of countries and can easily be damaged. His writing is lucid and energizing. His ability to write intriguingly about complex financial matters reminds me of Paul Erdman's novels from several decades ago. I will definitely read his other two Erika and Parker novels. ...more

Wow, I was sooo excited when Andrew asked me to review this book. I absolutely loved the first story about Parker and Erika and couldn't wait to read more! This one is just as exciting and fast paced as the first, with new adventures flying at the couple in every turn. I truly hope there will be more stories about these two, and Nick also, in the future! ...more

The Crown s Rengeance

It is sad but it is true that our nation is heading for a fall from greatness as former great nation's have done in the past from our infra structure rotting from within from greed. Will man ever learn from past mistakes, probably not. This novel was reverting, it held me captivated, holding my breath and anticipating every moment.

Entertaining but...

Story is unique but told in a way that is predictable. Still, it is entertaining and educational re history and finance.

Fun read

I haven't read the first book, but this was really good. I enjoyed the fast paced action and the historic plotline. Sort of scary to think about being real.

Great as the first

I loved this one as much as book one. Mr Clawson does an awesome job with history and fiction. It especially hits home after the 2008 stock market mess.

TOO many coincidences

There some in everyone's life, but here they become way over whelming. Plus in the end they become almost unconstrained.

Opposite of the first one: weaker premise, but better writing. Until the end of course, but I can deal with an overly dramatic ending
