Better than the first book, for sure!

This book has violence, because the second main character's goal is to kill someone for a reward of money. There is some mild language (one damn, couple uses of ass, smart-ass, and badass), and one sexual reference between Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt. This book has lots of educational value, and I learned a lot, especially about the "fountain of youth". Also, Jack supposes Miss Volker being drunk after having wine with her dinner.
