    If someone offered me the choice between taking a long road trip with a couple of kids or being murdered by the mob, I?d have to really think it over. It?s November 1963, and Frank Guidry is living well in New Orleans thanks to his top position with Carlos Marcello?s mob outfi...

    Ever since reading and loving The Long and Faraway Gone (My Review), I've been waiting on Lou Berney's next book. I'll come right out and tell you, this book was terrific and did not disappoint. I love that it was set in the time period of the 1960s, especially with the Kennedy Assas...

    This is my first Berney novel, and if his earlier works stand up to this one, DAMN I have been missing some quality writing. The dawn of a new era is beginning as Berney's tale starts. JFK has just been assassinated and Frank Guidry is sent from New Orleans to Dallas to pick up a car t...

    I?ve long been a huge fan of Lou Berney?s novels, especially The Long and Faraway Gone, which won an Edgar in 2016, along with several other prestigious awards, and which remains one of my favorite books of the last few years. Consequently, I?ve been very anxious to finally get m...

    Real Rating: 3.5* of five An interesting ride with an ending I was sort of hoping wouldn't be the ending. In fact, the reason this book didn't get a higher star than it did is that I was expecting everything that happened to happen. I got one actual pulse-pounding moment of suspense...

    I always have a little internal debate going on about whether a particular book works better or worse as an audiobook. Well, I know I would have liked November Road whether I read it or listened to it, but I have to say the narrator here, Jonathan McClain, did such a fabulous job tha...

    "'With every decision we create a new future,' Leo said.  'We destroy all other futures.'" * The assassination of President John F. Kennedy changed the course of American history and most everyone alive on November 22, 1963 can tell you exactly where they were and what they were do...

    What drew me to November Road is that it's set in the days on and following the assassination of JFK, and I'm drawn to books with anything related to the Kennedys. While this book didn't focus on what happened that fateful day in Dallas on November 22, 1963, the murder of JFK is the ...

    Wow, can this guy tell a story. He has the tension pulled perfectly throughout the length too. Presently (2018) that is as rare as a smokeless room at the old Dunes or Stardust circa the 1960's. Is it a perfect 5? Really, I don't think it is. But it's a 4.5 star I'll round up for p...

    I generally don?t read a ton of historical fiction novels that have a mystery at the forefront, but like so many others I?ve always been fascinated by the Kennedy family so this one captured my attention immediately. I?m also enamored with the sixties and having the assassination...

    Favorite Quotes: What if someone happened to come round that corner right now and caught them skulking? Trouble in this business had a way of spreading, just like a cold or the clap. Guidry knew you could catch it from the wrong handshake, an unlucky glance. The only poor decisi...

    Without knowing it, November Road was exactly what I needed to read. The blurb says too much about the plot, so I won't go into it. This was one sleek novel, with interesting characters and perfect pace that kept me turning the pages. The ending was unexpected, but I respect the ...

    A stellar piece of noir speculative historical fiction from Lou Berney, set amidst a background of a nation seeking to redefine itself with its social and political turbulence with the clamour for civil rights, feminism, and a fear of nuclear weapons. It is 1963, in Dallas JFK has been...

    Why I love it by AJ Finn Plot, setting, and character. It?s a simple three-ingredient recipe?you might call it Satisfying Novel Surprise?yet many (even most!) authors tend to skimp on one or another ? or all three. Few works of fiction, in my experience, spin a gripping sto...

    I love historical fiction but I wasn't entirely sure if a thriller style plot about JFK's assassination was going to be my thing. I'm pretty picky when it comes to choosing thrillers but thankfully there were enough regular fiction elements to the story so it didn't feel like it was gu...

    I chose this book as a botm pick and was excited to read it, but I found it disappointing. I think I would have enjoyed it more if it did not have the JFK tie, I felt that was unnecessary and it could have been written without it. I also thought several characters were randomly introdu...
