Allen Drury is my favorite author. He is mainly a conservative political writer. He "wandered" away from his basic style to write 2 books on Egypt. I am also a fan of historical fiction, and of course, I trusted Allen Drury with any book that he has written. He has written another book in the same genre.

Return to Thebes, A Novel about Tutakhamon and the End of Amarna Allen Druryl

I love the Egyptian period so I found these books to be fun and informative. I must add, however, that his political books are his forte. They are great -- Keeping in mind that his political philosophy is conservative.

The book for which he is most well know is: Advise and Consent. This book was followed by a series of books with the same characters as he tells the story of the political scene in Washington, DC.

Mr. Drury then turned his attention to a presidential election that follow the same characters as in the previous political series. The four books in this series are: Capable of Honor and Preserve and Protect. What is so unique about these four fictional novels is that he wrote two alternative endings based on two different outcomes of the presidential election and an assassination attack. Come Nineveh, Come Tyre and The Promise of Joy are the last two books of the series that give us a look at the Americas that would result based on who who survived the assassination attack, hence, who would run the country.

When I first finished reading Preserve and Protect...I did not know that there were going to be 2 different endings. I spent more hours than I care to say..trying to figures out who lived and who died after the Presidential deaths. I was definitely relieved when I found out about the next two books. I was not disappointed at all by the different endings. The produce to very different views as to how the country turns out with either a liberal or a conservative leadership.

He is one of the greatest authors ... who, I fear, is little know in today's reading world. He was a prolific writer. You can check out Allen Drury at Wikipedia to see the entire body of work by this amazing man. Mr. Drury died in 1998. Enjoy!
