As someone who appreciates history a lot this book was a very refreshing read. Whilst it does not claim to be historically accurate - and is not, I was able to appreciate the attention to detail to getting the general period research correctly and done well with impressive research. I found myself able to correlate events in the book to events I had studied for history and that I was able to appreciate highly throughout the book. What I loved most about the book was the impressive handling of real and fictional characters and sewn together seamlessly throughout the book all with backstories that help understand each one more intimately and gain a real connection and sense of intrigue for them all. I commend the author for being able to handle such a sensitive historical topic with such care and the historical note at the end was much appreciated. This book is great for anyone who loves a good thriller with political history!
