    One thought on “Out of the Gilded Cage”

    1. I've really enjoyed reading this series, John Simpson is a very detailed and well written author. Really enjoyed Out of the Gilded Cage (Condor #4). Great Series

    2. David and Shane no longer the President and 1st Gentleman try to make a home for themselves in a more quiet life and begin the process of adopting a child. They meet Jack who they become foster parents for. However David and Shane are brought in to assist President Victoria to help an issue that is related to an issue David dealt with earlier. I wont spoil how David handled it but he did and in fact lead Victoria into offering David a position in Britain and help speed up the process for Jack to [...]

    3. This is the 4th book in the Condor Series by John Simpson and continues the life of ex-president David Windsor and former First Gentlemen and his ex-secret service body guard husband, whom he married in the last book. We also have both the Mary's again. David and Shane settle in Cape May, NJ where they buy a beautiful house on the beach and purchase an office building to get ready to lead a civilian life. They decide that they have a place in their hearts for a child, so they go to a homeless sh [...]

    4. Another great addition to John's Condor series. This book continues the story of former President David Windsor and his spouse/ex bodyguard Shane Thompson as they adjust to life after the White House. They start putting their life together in their new home, start the proceedings to add to their family in the form of an abandoned and homeless gay teenager(Jack) and try to decide what they are going to do with their lives now outside the power circles of Washington. Of course, David finds himself [...]

    5. Decent storyIt had a good plot line but the characters remained undeveloped. The son Jack had no personality till the very end. And Shane is now a submissive little house husband and seems to do everything for David. What happened to the rough and tough Shane Thompson the character the carried the previous books.

    6. only 214 pages in my book. story is complete therefore all is well.Never considered how past presidents decided what to do with their lives once their term(s)of office finished.(view spoiler)[at times Jack acted very young for a previously homeless 14 yr old, then again I don't think he was homeless all that long (hide spoiler)]

    7. Totally implausible adoption of young homeless kid who'd been living on the streets. The kid has NO problems and acts like a little saint. Also, he's supposed to be 14, but acts as if he's about 10.I sitll enjoyed seeing David and Shane in love, just wish there'd been more of them.

    8. I think I enjoyed this novel the best of the four Condor series books. The inclusion of the adoption subplot really helped served to humanize the main characters.

    9. I read this book in one afternoon. Flowed smoothly, the political intrigue is written in such a way that it's easy to understand. Some sad moments, but a satisfying ending.

    10. Yep, still an unbelievable story (especially China) but such a wonderful couple. I just love David and Shane and now Jack too. On to the next one.
