The Yankee Club

The Yankee ClubThe Yankee Club by Michael Murphy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a wild ride that was! From an assassination attempt on Franklin Roosevelt to a plot to overthrow the government, thwarted by mystery writer Jake Donovan, and his childhood friends. There were enough "real" people co-mingled with the fictitious characters, I found myself searching the internet to see what was real. FDR, Joseph Kennedy, Cole Porter, Ethel Merman, Dashiell Hammett, Lillian Hellman were all likely to rub shoulders with Jake, Frankie, Gino, and Danny from the neighborhood. There were so many plot twists and surprise saves it kept my heart pumping.

I'm looking forward to the next adventure with Jake and Laura.
