Format: Mass Market Paperback
Meet Devereaux.Covert operative from the top secret R Section.An intelligence agency founded by President Kennedy after the CIA botched the bay of pigs operation.R Sections function is to essentially spy on the spys.After receiving orders to go to England to meet with an informant demanding 30,000$ for information about an alleged plot to assassinate a high ranking member of the British Royal Family, the reluctant Deveroux is drawn into a complex web of deceit,treachery,and inter-agency backstabbing of the most lethal varieties.A no nonsense character, Devereaux has many enemies{or are they friends?} to contend with, not least of which is Soviet agent Desinov who always seems to appear at crucial times.Who are the plotters of the assassination and what are their motivations? Is it the IRA, KGB, CIA, or some other unknown entity? The story unfolds with brisk pacing and an exceptional feel for the dialects of Ireland. The concept of the upstart R Section is an interesting one for it makes for natural intrigue and suspense.Who are the good guys and who are the villains? The line is most assuredly blurred.Author Bill Granger invests his protagonist Devereaux with an angst and cynicism that can only come from having been in the game for many years. I loved this book and I guess others did too, because there are about a dozen in the November Man series. It just surprises me that no one had given an Amazon review until now. Bill Granger deserves a place along with the likes of Robert Littell and Tom Clancy at the forefront of American espionage fiction authors.In closing I just want to thank Mr.Granger for the best series nobody here ever heard of.

Format: Paperback
The November Man is on of the best series I have ever read, and yes, I have read the masters as well. Deveraux is the tormented soul, deeper than Bourne ever was, cold as ice and not because he wanted to be. You feel for him. You root for him and you cry for him. The writing is sublime. I wish there were more. I am sad to hear that Mr. Granger (former Chicago Tribune journalist) suffered a stroke and lost a lot of his memory. I still go back and read his books. This was the first. I hear, FINALLY, that a movie is coming out based on November Man. Guess who is going to play him??? Ding Ding Pierce Brosnan. Here's to you Bill for a fantastic series.

I've read most of the November Man books and found them excellent reading. The scenarios are realistic and plotting is great. When reading, I mentally cast
the characters. My choice for playing Devereaux is an actor many may not remember: Roberts Lansing of "12 O'Clock High" TV series. He seems to fit the protagonist's description and attitude to a "T".

Format: Mass Market Paperback
As the first of thirteen books in the November man series, fans were left thirsting for the character of Devereaux, and I must admit I see certain parallels between Hanley and Irene Kennedy, Rita and Anna Reilly, and, of course, Devereaux and Mitch Rapp. Fans of the genre will know what I mean. I searched for years for the next installment, only to learn in Bill Granger's obituary this morning of his deteriorating health over the past many years. I salute you Bill, and the wonderful characters you cultivated for your fans. I extend my condolences to your family, and will forever cherish the day I discovered the November Man.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a tremendously underrated spy novel. Less of the physical drama you see in the Bourne/Bond series, this book is more realistic to me because of the political/personal drama, without the "Clancy" detail.
