The pope is dead and terrorists kidnap the president's daughter – I was hooked from the first page of The Fourth K.

One aspect I love is that the protagonist, Francis Kennedy (the president), and the antagonist (the terrorist Yabril) are so similar. Despite being enemies, they understand each other and think the same way, so they don't see each other as evil or bad.

I also like how Puzo always has something exciting happening so you don't get bored, and he surprises everyone at the end with a huge betrayal.

I am planning to read more books by Puzo and would ­recommend this one to anyone who enjoys long, descriptive novels. It's perfect for mature readers who like action and can handle some gore and violence. All in all, I give this book a 9 out of 10.
