His development and dislike for political intrigue made this book somewhat of a challenging read. His foster father teaches Nicholai Hel the Japanese game of “GO” and besides becoming fluent in a number of languages, he also becomes a master of “Go.” This book moves along at a regular pace as Nicholai Hel ends up in prison for many years until an American CIA agent makes an offer Nicholai Hel cannot refuse.
Strangely, I could not really get into the character and in fact his obvious hatred for American and other intelligence agencies makes him appear to be more of a psychopathic assassin. He does not seem to have any real loyalty (with the exception of his foster father) to anything and his cold personality and above average intelligence probably makes him the perfect assassin. Even though I did not warm up to this character I found this book a fairly good read.
If you are a fan of this author (Trevanian) you may want to check out this book. I am being generous by giving this book 4 stars.
Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Tactical Principles of the most effective combative systems)
