Eisenberg was now the US Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois. The two attorneys get together for lunch every few months, but this wasn’t just a chat among friends. The US Attorney is now working with the FBI on a high stakes case. They are investigating the disappearance of a government scientist whose bio-evolutionary research could turn Darwinism on its ear.
Apparently the main suspect has a connection to David’s past, and Eisenberg asks for his assistance. Somehow the assassination of JFK becomes involved when David seeks the help of another friend from his youth, Benny Friedman. Benny strongly believes that Oswald was part of a conspiracy to kill the 35th President of the United States. He also fears that someone is trying to keep him from revealing the truth.
Author Kaplan does a fantastic job weaving his plot lines together to keep the reader guessing what will come next. The addition of a love interest for David is a bit far fetched, since the author has him pining away for a girl he met for several minutes at a party when they were both in their mid-teens. Of course when they reconnect after all of these years, the spark is still there and the reader can join his fantasy of a happily ever after.
There is plenty of paranoia, deception and adventure to keep thriller fans interested, and I am going to search out Larry Kaplan’s first book.
