Yochanan, or John, is a computer programmer living in London. His mind is focused on his company’s release of a new computer program that can help financial companies buy, sell, and trade stocks. John’s day suddenly turns unexpected when an older man plows into him at a subway station. Two men in dark coats come into the station after him. The man tells John a cryptic message before he gets up and takes off toward the trains. As John rights himself, he hears the sound of a train squealing on his breaks, the older man has fallen to his death in the subway.
The man turns out to be an old acquaintance of retired super spy, Adam Grey. Grey was to meet with his informant the day of his death. With the help of John, they discover a plot to bring a Russian nuclear professor out of hiding. With the fear of a new nuclear threat, Gray, John, and a whole cast of spy characters, must put a stop to corruption and destruction.
I love the way this book is written, it’s not too heavy with complicated politics and spy material. It seems light-hearted, but serious at the same time. There are some very difficult moments in this book. But it is all handled very well.
I love John. He is definitely a relatable character. He is excited to meet a real spy and then he discovered a hidden package all by himself! He brings it to Grey, but as soon as they know about it, Grey and John find themselves running from gun fire in Chelsea. John definitely wants nothing to do with anything now that his life is in danger. I can related to that. I would love to be a spy! But at the same time, I don’t want bullets flying at me, and let’s not talk about potentially jumping across a building.
I learned a bit more about the structure of English government. I am a historical, British Royalty junkie, but getting an inside look at how the modern government works and is structured is very interesting.
Overall And the Wolf Shall Dwell is such an exciting ride! It gets 4/5 stars.
*Thank you Book Gobbler and Joni Dee for providing me with an eARC in exchange for an honest review
I will forego giving a plot summary, which is available in the book description; instead, I highly recommend giving The Wolf a read if you enjoy writers such as Flynn, Silva, Thor, or Yiftach Atir. You will not be disappointed, especially if he continues to develop these characters in future work.
Reviews are quite important for authors, especially those making their first debut.
I recognize I have a proclivity for including spoilers in my reviews, so you wont see any meat here.
I love a great spy novel.
For me, that means the novel must be clever, creative, and a page turner.
I certainly was not let down.
The characters and plot come to life, and stay that way throughout this novel.
While reading the opening of this book, i could realistically see myself standing in a crowd near a train.
I can say without hesitation that I wish I could play that role, but I am not as brave as that character. :)
I am simply just an avid reader
I am not an author, nor publisher
I have no vested interests of any kind re this novel or author.
Usually I finish a book within a couple of weeks, but this book kept me reading for longer and longer every time - I found it hard to put it away... and finished it within 10 days! Even though it is Mr. Dee's first novel (as far as I know...) - the level of writing is equivalent to Dan Brown, John le Carre and Lee Child, if not better than them.
Just buy it.
