If you thought the world of spy craft was awash with beautiful enigmatic women, stone faced muscled henchmen with Eastern European accents, burner phones and dead drops, then this book will do little to dissuade you of that notion. Good thing too as this could easily have been a more sedate novel. There’s a good deal of detail in the description of the settings used. Being a regular traveller to St Pancras myself, I appreciated the references to the badly tuned piano but can attest that the tunes being played on it are often not the fault of the tuner. Venice too is vividly portrayed. If you have been lucky enough to visit this beautiful city, the water buses, tight back water doglegs and plush cafes fronting the grand canal will all resonate.
If you enjoy spy masters and the murky world of Thames House, you’ll find plenty here to whet your whistle. If you prefer thrillers with nigh on non stop action, then I can heartily recommend this book as your next read. And don’t get me started on the twists.
You’ll find yourself tearing through the pages of this one. The short chapters help and although the cast of characters is quite extensive, you don’t need a glossary to keep track. A really polished and bang up to date read that will appeal to readers across genres.
Great plot that twists and turns. Characters that come through as real people. Rivalries between countries and respective security forces, a backdrop of headlines from current newspapers, it just goes on and on. Getting better with every page too. Truly hope there is a second chapter to this yarn, and damn quickly too.
I have been keeping an eye on this author for a while . Mr Robinson is very fleet of foot with his prose and his delivery is very well considered. The twists and turns to his plots are totally plausible, as are the international settings. I understand that the author is very well travelled and this pays excellent dividends. Particularly in the present climate when distractions are welcome, this book is more than excellent.
