My Review:

This is a very intriguing and captivating novel. The author’s writing style makes it accessible to younger readers yet still entertaining for adults. Woodward weaves action and adventure together in a tale with a cast of well-developed Canadian characters as they solve a mystery.

It gives you a very interesting look at the early live of Paul Martin in a way that keeps you captivated. It’s a very intriguing read for young readers or those who want a light hearted look into Canadian politicians & history.
