Ted Allbeury wrote a staggering 42 novels and used two other pen names ~ Richard Butler and Patrick Kelly as well. Here are 26 other read’s from Allbeury, all rated accordingly:
THE GOOD (Four to Five Stars): 'A Wilderness of Mirrors', 'A Time Without Shadows' aka 'The Rules of the Game', 'The Only Good German' aka ‘Mission Berlin’, 'The Dangerous Edge', ‘Palomino Blonde’ aka 'Omega - minus','The Lonely Margins', ’The Crossing' aka ‘The Berlin Exchange’, 'Seeds of Treason', 'Other Kinds of Treason', 'Shadow of a Doubt', 'Special Forces' aka 'Moscow Quadrille', the feel good, 'The Girl From Addis', 'Pay Any Price' and the rather exceptional, and this person's favourite, 'The Line-Crosser' (published in 1993).
THE AVERAGE (Two or Three Stars): 'Show Me a Hero', 'No Place to Hide' aka ‘Hostage’, ‘The Reckoning’, ’The Twentieth Day of January’ a.k.a. ‘Cold Tactics’, 'The Reaper' aka 'The Stalking Angel' and ‘Deep Purple’.
THE UGLY (One or two stars): It’s, however, probably best to stay away from: ‘Aid and Comfort’, ‘The Assets' aka “Due Process’, 'The Secret Whispers’, 'The Alpha List', ’Consequences of Fear' aka ‘Smokescreen’ and ’The Spirit of Liberty'. He also wrote, ’The Choice' which is not espionage and this reader thought not a good one. Cheers.

Whilst the ending is really well done ,I just felt something didn't quite click with it ; hence 4 stars . However this is still a brilliant read and superb value at only £ 0.99. !
I have read that The Lantern Network contains an element of autobiography in it and one can only stand amazed at what those brave men and women endured. This novel reeks of authenticity and, as with many other of the author's works, makes this reader a confirmed conspiracy theorist. Highly reccomended.
Would've liked more in the first part regarding the character who mysteriously died.
