John Creasey is a British writer who was exceedingly prolific, publishing nearly six hundred novels under numerous pseudonyms and in nearly a dozen different series. He is not as well known today as perhaps he should be. This particular novel comes at nearly the end of his 28 book Department Z espionage series, which began in 1933, nearly 2 decades before Ian Fleming's Bond series.
It is written in a stark manner without excess descriptions. It feels dark, dreary, and it is as if all the espionage and counter-espionage takes place in its own secret world away from the rest of society.
It is an enjoyable read, but it's starkness and lack of full character developments can lead to its dragging on at times. One wonders how different the first few books in this series were.
great surprise at the end. Enjoyed the characters introduced in this book--Merrick and Judy Ryall. And pleased to see Craigie and Loftus are still with Dept Z. Good, fast paced, exciting read.
