A well-written tale in the tradition of the authors Burr & 1876, it encompasses the Spanish-American War of 1898, US takeover of the Philippines, President McKinleys assassination & the stormy presidency of Theodore Roosevelt. Interesting & well-developed real-life characters abound, including, most memorably, Secretary of State & Lincolns old friend John Hay. Intermixed with the well-researched backdrop of historical characters & events is Carolines personal story. The 5th novel in Vidals American Chronicle series, this is yet another winner. Highly recommended.--Library Journal
