The narrative basically follows Marc Portman every step of the way as he goes about his mission, this time it's making sure a State Department official gets safely out of war torn eastern Ukraine, while cutting back to the CIA controllers and bureaucrats in the States. Complications inevitably ensue, and Adrian Magson depicts a gritty, realistic, and cynical portrayal of the confluence of Western geo-political interests and big business (a theme explored elsewhere in Dark Asset). Like the others in this series, this book is well researched, with authentic details on weapons and tradecraft, and these details are expertly woven into narrative without becoming overly technical.
Portman's parts are told from the first person. Very little information is given about his background or personal life, but Magson excels at showing us Portman's internal decision making process and tactical thinking. Portman is supremely competent, professional, and mission focused.
Unfortunately the rest of the books are too expensive for me.
From South Africa.
as great action. I've read two of his books now...twice, and I intend to read everything he has written
in the near future. Keep them coming I say. Can never have too much of Adrian Magson!!
