    One thought on “The Enemy Within”

    1. Interesting take on the struggle for the political Power in the America of the `60`s and the way the FBI was organised at that time.It made me real curious to read some of the real lifes of the characters involved here, from Bobby Kennedy (shot in real life, like his brother, by a Palestinian guy!!! :O) to J. Edgar Hoover, the founder of the FBI or the powerfull figure of the American President, Lyndon B. Johnson.Good story from the beginning to the end.

    2. Originally posted at: amazingstoriesmag/2015/09/Since I am a Sidewise Awards judge, I should make an effort to read more books and stories that earned the Sidewise stamp of approval. I think a good place to start is the recent Sidewise Award winner for the long-form award, The Enemy Within by Kristine Kathryn Rusch. The book is actually an expanded version of Rusch's 2008 Sidewise winning short story "G-Men", which was originally published in the anthology, Sideways in Crime, which I own, but fo [...]

    3. An unusual take on the alternative history novel Rusch spins a fast-paced, entertaining and suspenseful thriller that starts with the murder of J.Edgar Hoover only a few months after the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Smart, speculative, we'll done.

    4. A thriller that has it all and kept me turning the pages long after I should have been doing other things! Loved it, and will be reading more of Rusch's books. Do yourself a favour and grab a copy!
