A GOOD FAST-MOVING BOOK
“GOOD DAY, AMERICA” continues the series of a favorite character, radio broadcaster Parker Atkins. The story takes place during the pre-World War II industrial buildup and involves the machinations of an industrialist and the United States government.
Industrialist Henry J. Frazier plays games with real people and deadly consequences. On the government side, Eleanor Roosevelt is sincerely insincere, a likable scary lady. Charline Blanchard’s character further develops importance to Parker in this installment, and you will recognize some other folks who join the adventure.
The overall mystery and motive keep the reader guessing through the entire story with multiple plot twists and some surprising events. As always, H.P. Oliver entertains by mixing the story’s mystery with real history – locations, people, events – often causing the reader to pause reading in order to research and learn more about a person, place or event.
The pace of the story builds steadily through each chapter and by the middle of the book the reader is compelled to keep turning pages through a nicely tied together ending. This is a slightly longer book than prior books in the series and is a very good, fast-moving story.
