's review

it was ok

I haggled with 2-3 stars and dropped it to 2 since Baldacci has several men emphasize the fact that at this time men thought women were worthless and uncapable of taking care of financial matters. I find this total bullshit as the older women in my life on my side and my husband's side all are the financial caretakers, myself included. I would say it would be safe to say was is true in most households back then and still true now.
The rest of the story so so. I am curious about the next book with Archer...is he gonna be Baldacci's Jack Reacher???

Tim Authors who place women as inept or unable automatically get lower ratings from me.

Karen Hildebrand Totally agree with Julie's review.

Sheryl But that was how it was in that era!!!!!

Tim Popko I feel this is a very unfortunate view of the book, if not the genre. My god, if all historical fiction books had to be politically-correct by modern day standards, what a sad world that would be.
