    " Competent thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shyamal | 2/14/2014

    " i enjoyed reading it "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nancy | 2/3/2014

    " I read this on recommendation of my mother, who told me I would enjoy the DC setting and familiar landmarks. That she was right about. I was not blown away by the plot, but I am not a big crime novel fan and didn't feel it was suspenseful enough to be a bonafide thriller. This novel was written in the ?80's or earlier and is was interesting to see the things that have changed so much about how we live. I can't imagine being an FBI agent prior to the cell phone. The main character was constantly digging coins out of his pockets to use pay phones.....it seems so quaint or antiquated now. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nitish Gupta | 2/3/2014

    " Had high expectations from ths book having read him earlier. Out of his usual genre, JA dissapoints. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 2/1/2014

    " Good book. Kept me in suspense throughout. The characters weren't very complex and the narrative style underwent a change about half way through the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vyasviral | 1/18/2014

    " The book moves at a great pace. Page turner would be a nice way of describing it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolphe | 1/16/2014

    " I'm still somewhat confused as to how this novel bears any relation to the Kane and Abel series. It's obviously a stand alone project and doesn't seem to bear the same writing style evidenced in Archer's other works. It's an entertaining story in its own right, nonetheless. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah | 1/14/2014

    " A rookie agent has to stop the assassination of the President. So this book wasn't bad so much as ridiculous. It was written a long time ago about the future 43rd president, then updated and published again after there had been a real 43rd president. I really think I might have liked it had I read it in 1977 or something. But it was just surreal, and not in a good way, to read someone's vision of the 2000s. He got to first female president, but didn't quite think of the internet. So the hero is just doing all his research at the library with a stack of quarters from a pay phone. On an unrelated note, even if the technology had been updated, I just really got angry at the hero's passionate love for the heroine aka a possible accomplice of the assassin. The deal was that they met and he just fell too head over heels and believed so much in love and his right to love that he couldn't stay away from her for the 6 days to the presumptive assassination. I wonder if it's annoying to me because it really is annoying or because in the post-2001 world nothing like that seems believable (just like pay phones). "

    " This one is okay. A weak continuation of Kane & Abel and The Prodigal Daughter. Enough all ready. Lets move on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Craig Brantley | 1/12/2014

    " This is one of those summer time books I'll always remember. A great read many years ago that I feel I have to add to my list. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Farhan Ishak | 11/17/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ujjwal shah | 9/11/2013

    " Great book. A must read for both ' die hard Archer fans ' and those uninitiated to his style of writing. Throat clutching , fast and intriguing this thriller has it all to make you stay up till late! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda | 9/7/2013

    " I'm reading the 1996 reprint of this. I love Jeffrey Archer! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Abdur Rahman | 2/18/2013

    " read this book last year, an average entertainer, not the best of jeffrey archer works, an OK novel, slow moving but worth a read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rupesh Goenka | 1/21/2013

    " A Brilliant Story & a Stunning Plot.. A compelling Read.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christopher Culp | 12/31/2012

    " Interesting premise, but not his best when it comes to execution with respect to both plot and characters. This reads well as a stand-alone political thriller, but disappoints a bit in the context of Archer's other works. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rashmi | 11/12/2012

    " Didn't like that much.......... "

    " I read this book when it was first published and enjoyed it. Now, 30 years later I read it again; thoroughly enjoyed it and was significantly amuzed by a book set in today's time with no knowledge of the introduction of cell phones. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peggy | 7/3/2012

    " This is the third book in the Kane and Able series.There is an assination threat against the president.The FBI has six days to find who is behind the threat and stop them.It is fast paced and an enjoyable read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rodrigo Pérez | 5/23/2012

    " Interesting, what would have happened if Ed Kenedy was the president of USA? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John | 8/8/2011

    " Just ok - interesting start (read and you'll see what I mean). Story develops in an average way and continues in an average way. Not the most gripping action/thriller type novel I've read but it was just ok. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 5/2/2011

    " This was fun! It takes place in Washington, DC and the hero lives in Tiber Island where John and I have a condo. It's basically a secret service/FBI tale and the protectee is a woman president. Good vacation kind of book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nellie | 3/21/2011

    " The only thing wrong with this book is that it was the end of the trilogy. I wanted the story to continue. I'll miss this family of characters. "

    " The transitions weren't very good, it was hard to follow. The book lacked a lot of sparkle for me. However, the lady reading the book (i listened to the book) did a GREAT job with voices and inflections in tones. It was ok.. "

    " Not as good as its predecessors but a good diveresion and easy read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barbara | 12/15/2010

    " Action adventure books about America and Americans should not be riddled with British colloquialisms. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nandhini | 12/4/2010

    " Typical Archer. And a fresh perspective on Florentyna as the Prez. A thriller that will have you hooked from page one. "

    " its was my first jeffrey archer book and i must say it was great fun.But recently i i read his other books which are better than SHALL WE TELL THE PRESIDENT.but all in all good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kendra | 7/23/2010

    " This one picks up after Prodigal Daughter, and really takes established characters and introduces brand new ones, adn that is what this book focuses on, so really not much left of the Kane and Abel Saga. However, it was a fast read, but not as good as the previous two. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 6/25/2010

    " It was fun reading a mystery from the 70's -- the way the investigation was handled before all the current technology was amusing. "

    " Never read any of Archer's books but quite enjoyed this one "
