I loved the Bourne movies, so I was excited about the opportunity to listen to this book during my journeys to and from work. There are some exciting action scenes with narrow escapes, some interesting characters, a shady multinational terror organisation etc. My problem was that it didn't hold my interest - I couldn't see the coherent and overarching plot and I was bored by the long sections of dialogue. Because of this, even the action scenes lacked any interest. I found that I didn't care what happened - and so I gave up half-way through.
"Not up to Hewson's normal high standard"
Like other reviewers, I have enjoyed the Costa series and looked forward to more of the same. This was disappointing and the story was far fetched and slow-moving. I don't know about the Italian accent, but what set my teeth on edge was a) pronouncing "Actuarial" as "Acturial" and b) suggesting that Cambridge University would have a professor of Acturial Science
"I loved it"
This book has everything, great characters, a love story, science fiction, American history, conspiracy theories, nostalgia for the 50s/60s, and a great ending.
