The Empire of Lies is a fun and exciting book. It is a "what if..." novel. Alternative history at its best. I am not generally a fan of science fiction, but this type of novel is very intriguing to me. Thinking about how the world would be different if one major even in history was changed is fascinating. Empire of Lies is well-written and the characters are well-developed. The plot is taut and intricate, and the pacing is very good. I was intrigued from the beginning and never lost my interest. There is adventure, danger, a bit of the thriller. There is even romance. But the part that makes the book most interesting to me is its exploration of history. I will be buying a finished copy of this one for my husband, who teaches world history. I know he will love it.
