This is part thriller, part history, part mystical mystery, party political commentary and it is a times fast paced and interesting but at others it is a little convoluted and absurd. The hero, Al Campo hides many secrets in his cluttered Philadelphia area home and it's not just the one he finds in an old couch.

I was drawn to the book due to its location - I was born in Philadelphia and it holds a soft spot in my heart. Reading about places I know and miss was probably the best part of the book

I had to stop reading this. Couldn't finish. Started off good, about halfway through it went downhill and I had to stop. :(
