I have read every Jack Martin book and each one made me feel like I was witnessing history first-hand, like I was right there. Brother, Can You Spare a Dime? was not an exception. I got a glimpse of gangster life��"Bonne and Clyde, Dillinger, J. Edgar Hoover, Early Long, Carl Weiss, Heinrich Himmler, Franz von Papen. If I had read books like his in high school, I would have gotten more out of history classes. The common thread throughout all his books is a blonde guy with small, round glasses…Gosh, I love that character. I cannot wait for more!
For those not familiar with his other works, he has written: John Brown’s Body, Battle Cry of Freedom, Marching Through Georgia, The Battle Hymn of the Republic and Hail Columbia. All are fabulous!
