"Definite intrigue. This book is written in third person, going from person to person. I often wondered how I was going to keep everybody straight, but Wachtel kept it straight for me. Not as clearly scripted was figuring out who the bad guys and who the good guys were in the intrigue. Some of the plot reminded me of a previous book by a different author that resulted in many readers believing the book was not fiction, but truth. 5 stars for the author`s ability to weave a similar tale and draw the reader into the story so thoroughly.But I would not recommend the book for all readers. I recommend this to adult readers only that simply want to enjoy a well written fiction book " Nancy S. Wagner,

" Great read - from beginning to end,
- THE ESSENE
CONSPIRACY (Kindle Edition) Mr. Wachtel did a
terrific job - kept the reader from the first
page to the last. I recommend this book to
anyone who enjoys a good mystery with a
little history peppered throughout."
