I like Nathan Heller's adventures with famous people in history. But I'm not always sure I like Max Collins who writes them.

Collins has his "alter ego" engaging in a lot of sex. And some of it seems pointless, unless it is just filler for those readers who need sex to retain their attention. For example, if you were held prisoner for over a year by the Japanese who denied you existed, and someone came to rescue you and you had two hours to wait before attempting the escape, would you spend those two hours having sex?

Well, maybe it's just me, but I don't think I would. And I agree with Donna C. (see her review), I don't think this novel was very complimentary to Amelia Earhart. And, while it was interesting, I never believed in the "secret mission against the Japanese" conspiracy theory for Earhart's disappearance.

A novel based on what might have happened to Amelia Earhart on her last flight. History buffs will love it.

I've been fascinated by the story of Amelia Earhart for years and I like Max Collins' books, so I thought this was quite good.
