Returning to Penfleet after years in New York, Kate can't help but feel a pang of affection for the little town by the sea where she grew up. If only she were returning in happier circumstances. This last trip is full of farewells: to her childhood home, her once best friend and the life she left behind. Kissing the widow of the richest man in town wasn't one of Nathan's best ideas. Now he can't get Vanessa out his mind.

When the bomb goes off, how many passengers on the Buckingham lose their lives? You will only find out if you read the opening chapter of  Mightier than the Sword. When Harry visits his publisher in New York, he's told that he's been elected the new president of English PEN and immediately launches a campaign for the release of a fellow author, Anatoly Babakov, who's imprisoned in a Russian gulag in Siberia.

Weaker than previous books in series

The starting point was good and the introduction of new villains worked. However the sub plots were more irritating than absorbing and too much time was given to the contents of the Lenin story. The development of the banking story and those of the shipping company would have been interesting.
