Starred Review. The FBI has six days to stop a plot to assassinate the President in this title originally published in 1977 as a stand-alone thriller and refashioned in 1987 to complete No. 1 New York Times best-selling author Archer's "Kane and Abel" trilogy. The narration is by Audie Award winner Lorelei King (Tallgrass), who also read the last entry in this series, The Prodigal Daughter (Jeff Harding read the first; abridged recordings of all three are available from Macmillan Audio). King performs expressively, adding just the right amount of excitement to the story. The abridgment is skillfully executed; it is impossible to tell where material has been omitted. Highly recommended.—Ilka Gordon, Siegel Coll. of Judaic Studies Lib., Cleveland

The book is populated with all wooden characters, hewn with an industrial-grade ax, not a chisel. They move to and fro in wholly pointless, predictable grooves, uttering inane, boring cliches and platitudes. This is intended to be a crime novel. The real crime in it was cutting down the trees for the paper to print it on.
A man in a Washington hospital needs to speak personally with the Director of the FBI. He has information that is essential to the security of the US. Three FBI agents pay him a courtesy visit and he tells them he has overheard a plot to assassinate Florentyna Kane. When twso of the three agents are killed in a car accident, it is up to the remaining agent to unravel the mystery, determine which Senator is involved, where it will take place, etc. - all in a week. Meantime he's fallen for a beautiful woman Dr. and is trying to develop thisk relationship, even when her father appears on the short list of suspects.
Still, Archer can pull me along if he were writing about cows eating grass. He'd somehow find a way to make it interesting. But if you're hoping for an even bigger bang for your buck after Kane & Abel, it's going to be slow going.
It's very misleading to call this book 3 as it has pretty much nothing to do with the book 1 or book 2 except the fact that the main character from book 2 is used in this book. I am very disappointed with the way the book was marketed as book 3.
The book itself is just ok and it's as if Jeffrey Archer was just experimenting with his writing ... Neither the genre nor the writing style suited him . I am a big fan of Jeffrey Archer and this book is a total disappointment for me personally !!!
