I have a humungous soft spot for espionage crime novels, and I grew up reading them. When trying to explain this novel it's easiest if you think Bourne meets Bond. Porter has the reserved calm demeanor you associate with Bond, but the action in this gets to Bourne level.
In this you learn not just about Porter now, but you discover HOW he became Porter. Miranda is still very much a mystery, there has to be a reason why it's called Miranda, but I hear there is a sequel in the pipeline and CAN'T WAIT! Some books just grab you and take you on a trip you don't want to step off, this is one of those! Not only does it have it's funny moments where you laugh out loud, but it also makes so much sense on the profound spectrum that you find yourself nodding and agreeing with the main characters a lot. I think every book should have some wisdom in it, and this one definitely has enough pearls of wisdom for an oyster party. I refuse to say anything more, because I want you to have the same journey I did without spoilers.
Everyone in this novel has a story, everyone is hiding secrets, everyone has scars, everyone is playing everyone, and it's a complete Mind F****. If you need a new novel that will remind you of a debonair era when crime authors were our rock stars, you have just found your next read.
In this tale we follow the lives five people who are connected to Miranda, a global organization that has existed in secret for many generations. The world knows nothing of this cabal, though it exercises a great deal of control over anything of significance that happens in the world. Those at the top of Miranda are unknown to the world, and yet they are more powerful than any president, king or prime minister.
Porter, Leslie, James, Ramone and Jacob, all affiliated with Miranda; purposefully placed on a cruise ship with different agendas. Do they trust each other or not? Would doing so play into Miranda’s plans or would it thwart them? Matching wits against this mysterious organization is seldom successful and often fatal. Should they trust Miranda, or is it time to run for their lives?
With our collective concerns about drones, government monitoring of our electronic communication and the trade off of privacy for convenience, Mutch pulls us deep into this tangled web. When we finally finish reading this intense story, we realize that on this topic, the line between fiction and reality is probably not so crisp and tidy. In many novels we get to the end and breathe a sigh of relief. In Miranda we get to the end, look around and give a bit of a shudder.
Definitely 5 stars.
