BOOK REVIEW: The Conspirators

The March King, John Philip Sousa, wrote books, too, which is something I learned recently when I was researching his life for another project. “The Conspirators” is one of his short stories.

This tale revolves around the kidnapping of Lillian by three despicable scoundrels, and the search party that set out to rescue her. The ending fulfills the rewards deserved.

Sousa is, not surprisingly, a very good writer. His descriptions are real and vivid, and his style, though more suited to late nineteenth-early twentieth century structure. However, it is a masterful style that is easily read and understood

This is a book that I recommend. It can be read in about an hour or less, as it’s 19 pages, and it keeps the reader’s interest.
