Patterson’s first novel. Praised because it involves a black leader who is
assassinated. Otherwise, it is disorganized, and the only mystery is how the he
will pull it out in the end, which he doesn’t. It lacks his humanism and
romanticism and sympathetic characters. It lacks suspense and a tight plot.
It promotes Roman Catholicism like all his other novels.
