Gripping!

This book was gripping from the start. Maxim does an excellent job of bringing historical characters to life. From the coniving Jay Gould to the gung ho Teddy Roosevelt. With very rich descriptions of late 1800's New York City.

From the start we cannot figure out if John Corbin is one person, two people, or many people. We do not know if there are ghosts haunting him or if he has a combination of gene heredity and ESP.

There is an amazing barroom brawl scene where Tilden and a bruiser go at it and savagely beat each other but still address each other as gentlemen. That was a piece of amazing writing!

If you can find this one get it!
