"A cerebral and gripping thriller...fuses the entwined professions of politics and espionage." (The Herald)
"Echoes of John Buchan and John le Carré." (Sunday Times on The Madness of July)
A real thriller set in heated political times - characters well drawn out and the story riveting - even though I did lose concentration once or twice through the convoluted story.
Very like John le Carres early works.
I would recommend this story.
I don't know.
Not in this genre but by this author.
He is a great news reader but his monotone delivery made me want to stop and not bother.
Disappointment as I expected a lot from this author.
I got lost in the myriad of characters and thought it may have got clearer as the story moved on but it never did.
