Four presidents of the United States have been assassinated—in 1865,
1881, 1901, and 1963—each murder seemingly unrelated. But what if those
presidents were all killed for the shocking same reason: a clause
contained in the United States Constitution? This is the question faced
by former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone. When President
Danny Daniels is nearly killed in the heart of Manhattan, Malone risks
his life to foil the murder—only to find himself at odds with the
Commonwealth, a secret society of pirates first assembled during the
American Revolution. Racing across the nation and taking to the high
seas, Malone and Cassiopeia Vitt must break a secret cipher originally
possessed by Thomas Jefferson, unravel a mystery concocted by Andrew
Jackson, and unearth a document forged by the Founding Fathers
themselves—one powerful enough to make the Commonwealth unstoppable.
My Take: I love a good conspiracy theory and this book held my interest. If you are a history buff and mystery enthusiast, you should enjoy it. This is a new author for me but I would like to read more from him. It's a book a can recommend.
